A new and patent-pending additive technology developed by Vertellus allows compounders and moulders to reduce costs and boost sustainability efforts while integrating previously incompatible materials into their alloys.
Vertellus’ ZeMac® Link NP is a compatibiliser additive that permits the inclusion of nylon and polyester materials, including recycled and post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate (r-PET), in the alloy production process.
Effective at very low levels, ZeMac® Link NP provides a cost-effective approach for combining virgin nylon and recyclable polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) materials.
ZeMac® Link NP is well suited for use in a wide range of alloy applications, including office furniture, fasteners, hand tools, outdoor equipment, textile bobbins and automotive accessories such as hubcaps.
ZeMac® Link NP allows low-cost, post-industrial and post-consumer polyesters to be included in alloy compounds, supporting sustainability initiatives. Glass fibre, minerals and impact modifiers may also be used with ZeMac® Link NP.
Marketing manager at Vertellus Prasad Taranekar said: “As compounders and moulders seek to cost-effectively improve material performance while boosting sustainable production processes, ZeMac® Link NP provides an innovative and cost-effective solution for including recycled nylon and r-PET materials with virgin nylon in various alloys.”
