Plastic, PVC and Masterbatch
Shaheen offers a comprehensive selection of minerals including talc, kaolin, calcium carbonates to serve the current market of plastic, PVC and master batch. Shaheen is continuously adding value and providing solutions to boost up processes and enhance the properties of several polymer and engineered plastic applications. Shaheen minerals act as an additive in plastic injection molding, extrusion coating and blow molding etc. It allows the polymer to cool down faster which on the other hand increases the productivity. Shaheen mineral fillers provide remarkable breathability, impact strength, elongation at break and high degree of whiteness.
Improved properties in Rigid and biopolymer applications
Shaheen provides different grades of ground Calcium Carbonate having a special surface modification on to prevent polymer degradation during extrusion which also gives better elongation, impact strength in rigid polymers application. Shaheen minerals are ultimate reinforcing additives and nucleating agents in biopolymers where they improve stiffness, heat resistance and other mechanical properties, making them suitable for a much wider range of applications. They act as tremendous anti-blocking agents in bio-plastic films.
Process enhancement of Polyvinylchloride (PVC)
Shaheen is exceptionally positioned to assist the segment meet confrontations with our wide range of mineral solutions used in PVC applications. Shaheen provides fastest performance and substantial benefits in processing. The higher stiffness of Shaheen minerals allows reducing the wall thickness and therefore leads to material savings. Shaheen Calcium Carbonates are the benchmark for PVC profile. Shaheen minerals reduce the cost and provide excellent surface gloss, good processing even at high loadings. They are a tremendous reinforcement agent which maximizes mechanical properties in PVC building profiles and flooring. Its value in rigid applications is to improve stiffness and dimensional stability, and because of the improved thermal conductivity, faster cool down and efficiency of production increases. A PVC plastisol-based product contains Shaheen Calcium Carbonates to improve the product’s mechanical properties such as stiffness, ageing resistance and processing in addition to significant cost reductions.
Increased runnability and functionality in Sheet and pipe production
Shaheen minerals with their exceptional whiteness, increased stiffness, higher extruder output in sheet extrusion & thermoforming, good dispersion and low oil absorption are an excellent fleer for plastic sheet applications. Shaheen treated Calcium Carbonates extensively improve the stiffness of variety of polymers, allowing for considerable reduction in sheet gauge but the top load is maintained and therefore leading to optimized formulation costs. The high thermal conductivity of Shaheen Calcium Carbonates allows speeding up extrusion, sheet processing and thermoforming. Shaheen minerals with fine particle size and wide variety of high-quality surface treated and untreated Calcium Carbonate give good mechanical and optical properties with improved processing, increased ring stiffness and required toughness for pipes and fittings. Our variety of coated products ensures a brilliant dispersion in the polymer-based products and allows high mineral loadings which are the favored solution to accomplish material cost savings.
Excellent filler performance in master batch
Shaheen minerals are used to manufacture filler master batch. Masterbatch is well thought-out as input material for producing of different plastic products by injection molding technique, so it is widely used in the production of plastic accessories, parts, equipment, household products, etc. Masterbatch not only helps manufacturers reduce production costs but also enhanced the hardness, smoothness of surface and reduces reduction of the finished products. Shaheen treated and untreated calcium carbonate improves the product mechanical properties and also increases product ability, improves harsh conditions of productions in addition with improved number of physical and chemical properties of finished plastic products.
