Thermoplastic masterbatches

Graphistrength® thermoplastic masterbatches contain multi-wall carbon nanotubes that are perfectly dispersed in a polymer matrix in a high concentration.

 

Graphistrength® thermoplastic masterbatches are produced in specific blending and dispersion conditions which have no effect whatsoever on the initial multi-wall carbon nanotubes characteristics but enhanced its performance thanks to the disentanglement of the initial multi-wall carbon nanotubes aggregates.

Graphistrength® thermoplastic masterbatches are available in several polymer matrices and can be used in conventional industrial processes with conventional handling safety procedure.


Graphistrength® C M12-30 is a "universal" masterbatch, which can be diluted in various thermoplastic matrices, including:

  • polyamides
  • polyesters
  •  polycarbonate

This new masterbatch combines straightforward dilution, safety and versatility of use.
