Thermoplastics

 
 
approx.
650.000 tons
of highly CO₂ -intensive, fossil-based carbon black is used in thermoplastic compounds each year globally, primarily for colour and UV-stability
 
 

Masterbatch producers, compounders, converters, and customers alike are looking for sustainable alternatives. UPM’s Renewable Functional Filler (RFF) represents a revolutionary solution for standard polymers like PE, PP and PS and engineering polymers like ABS or PA. Other than most renewable fillers, the RFF can even withstand processing temperatures of up to 260oC. In combination with renewable and/or biodegradable polyesters, black compounds with maximum renewable content become accessible.
