Mineral Fillers

INDEVCO focuses efforts and R&D to develop and expand production of fillers from naturally abundant minerals, in order to offer more sustainable raw material options to plastics converters. By transitioning sister companies and other plastic converters away from fossil-based resins and additives, INDEVCO promotes the adoption of UN Sustainable Development Goal SDG12 for responsible consumption and production.

 

 

Mineral Fillers

Recom in Saudi Arabia and Masterpak Nile in Egypt increased production of calcium carbonate fillers by over 56% in 2016, under the MicroMB brand. Sister companies used 46% - 12,074 MT of the total 26,204 MT - of calcium carbonate produced to replace virgin masterbatches. 
 
Calcium carbonate fillers offer faster heating and cooling, speed film converting, and increase output, reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions coherent with UN SDG12 (Target 12.2) to achieve sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources. 
 
Masterpak Nile also began producing talc filler in 2016 for softer surface films.
