Antimicrobial Masterbatches

Antimicrobial Masterbatches

Plastic products are attacked by different types of microbes like mould fungi, mildew fungi, algae, yeasts etc. The microbial action can cause discoloration, unpleasant odours and polymer degradation in untreated plastic articles. Antimicrobial additives can be incorporated through the masterbatch route during processing and provide a biocide treatment to control microbes. Antimicrobial masterbatches protect the surface of plastic from staining and degradation caused by micro-organisms. Most of the Antimicrobial masterbatches are based on Nano-silver technology gives very long-term protection and keep the product hygiene. The selection of the antimicrobial is done based on the product thickness and heat stability requirements. Antimicrobial masterbatches based on various polymers like PE ,PP, Acrylic, Nylon, PET , Polycarbonate etc. are available in AddKan range.

The Antimicrobial Masterbatches from AddKan

There are three significant grades of Antimicrobial Masterbatches available from AddKan, depending on the applications, those are:

• ADV/01/00154 ANTIMICROBIAL PE02 & ADV/01/00157 ANTIMICROBIAL PE 03 designed for PE applications
• ADV/02/00039 ANTIMICROBIAL targeted for PP applications
• ADV/07/00083 PET ANTIBACTERIA for applications in PET

These Masterbatches are based on silver ion antimicrobial additive.
The Antimicrobial Masterbatches comprise around 5% of the active antimicrobial additive content. It will interfere with the cell metabolism of the microbe and will prevent it from reproducing. So, the products, which came from the AddKan houses, will remain free from germs, hygienic, and also fresh. This kind of item is perfect for food-grade applications too.
