Compounding Fillers
from Minerals

OUR COMMITMENT is to develop and expand production from naturally abundant minerals,
in order to offer sustainable raw material options to plastics converters.

  • Context

    With increasing scrutiny, finding alternatives to finite fossil fuel-based raw materials in plastic packaging has gained momentum. Minerals such as Calcium Carbonate and Talc are naturally abundant and commonly used in plastic film converting, due to improved properties and high-performance. Using mineral fillers in plastics converting has steadily increased over the years…

  • Management Approach

    INDEVCO Flexible Packaging division in Egypt and Napco National Flexible Packaging division in Saudi Arabia have identified renewable raw materials for plastic packaging as a material topic. The plants manufacture mineral fillers to replace fossil-fuel based raw materials and, thus, reduce direct impacts, and the impacts of sister plastic packaging manufacturers and external plastic converters…
