Forever young! The Sukano RPET Masterbatch Portfolio

Sukano_RPET

Now Polyester can be recycled many times and still feature the look and performance of virgin Polyester. With the innovative range of Sukano masterbatches for RPET converters can save costs and make a contribution to the environment. This is possible by using higher percentages of recycled PET in their products, without compromising their appeal and functionality, keeping the Polyester forever young.


The SUKANO® Masterbatch portfolio for RPET offering


Specific masterbatches allow the integration of virgin Polyester functions into Polyester recycled many times:



  • Sukano’s optical brightener for RPET resets the color tone of the recycled material from yellowish to neutral and maintains a fresh appeal.

  • Sukano’s melt strength enhancer reacts with the broken molecular chains in the recycled PET and restores them to almost their original strength. This increases viscosity and improves the mechanical properties, making the material easier to extrude and to process.

  • Sukano’s impact modifiers for RPET improve the toughness of recycled Polyester in converting processes like stamping, die cutting or folding. They also improve antisplice properties for straps made from RPET.

  • Sukano’s slip/antiblock masterbatch for RPET enables excellent COF reduction at minimum haze increase.

  • Color masterbatches for RPET change the optical properties of recycled Polyester into the desired color and appearance.

  • Sukano foaming agent for RPET can reduce the weight of the final product, thus further reducing material cost.


Converters can either use the products individually, or combine several functionalities in one single masterbatch. All Sukano RPET masterbatches are highly concentrated, so even lowest amounts will make a big difference in the final product.
