Pipes & Profiles
Our applications for the pipe industry cover plain and corrugated pipes, which are typically made of PE and PP, for use in applications such as cable protection and sewerage.
For both applications, Kompuestos has developed several Exfill® grades of calcium carbonate and talc based concentrates that can help in developing certain applications such as those ranging from cost-effective solutions to high-end applications.
One of the main advantages of using mineral masterbatches in pipe productions is to improve the compressive strength and impact resistance amongst other mechanical properties. Owing to the possibility of decreasing wall thickness while maintaining referral mechanical properties, Exfill® is the perfect match for this application.
For pipes that need to withstand high-temperature variations, we offer special talc grades that significantly improve the dimensional stability of the pipe.
The main benefits of using Exfill® in the above application
• Substantial cost reduction
• Improved processing
• Increased ring stiffness
• More homogeneous mechanical properties
The Exfill® range of products can be used in the manufacturing of the following:
• Plain pipes
• Corrugated pipes
Exfill® helps to minimise the carbon footprint of finished products. Our mineral concentrates are completely recyclable and naturally engineered to reduce the use of petrochemical-based products. When you use our products, you add ecological value to plastic by increasing productivity and lowering energy consumption
The Exfill® range of products can be used in packaging according to the following:
• FDA 21 CFR;EEC (94/62)
• Council of Europe Resolution AP(89)1
• European Commission Regulation (EU) num 10/2011.
