Why should talcum powder be added to plastic? What are the precautions?

 

Talc has a special flaky structure, as a filler, not only can save the amount of resin, but also significantly improve the physical properties of the product, is an important functional filler in the plastic industry.

 

 

1. Application characteristics of talcum powder in plastics

 

(1) Functionality

 

The addition of talcum powder can improve a variety of properties of plastics, such as molding shrinkage, surface hardness, flexural modulus, tensile strength, impact strength, thermal deformation temperature, molding process and product dimensional stability.

 

(2) Economy

 

There is no doubt that the addition of talcum powder can significantly reduce material costs and improve the economic efficiency of enterprises.

 

(3) Strong applicability and wide application range

 

In different plastic materials, in addition to reducing costs, the application characteristics of talcum powder are also different:
  • ABS and NylonThe addition of talcum powder can improve heat resistance and molding shrinkage;

  • PolyethyleneThe addition of talcum powder can improve rigidity, heat resistance and molding shrinkage;

  • PolypropyleneThe addition of talcum powder can improve the overall strength, heat resistance, molding shrinkage and rigidity;

  • agricultural plastic shed filmThe addition of talcum powder can improve its thermal insulation while maintaining good light transmission;

  • InPE, PP, PVC and other plastic filmIn, talc has low hardness, good hand feeling, and the refractive index is similar to PP and PE;

  • high mesh talcum powder, inPolypropyleneIt can play the role of nucleating agent, effectively improve the comprehensive performance of polypropylene;

  • Hollow productsThe addition of talcum powder can reduce production costs, reduce shrinkage, improve stiffness and increase product life;

  • Automotive plastics, pipes and other engineering plasticsThe addition of talcum powder can improve its impact strength, improve the creep resistance at high temperature, reduce the shrinkage rate, give the surface quality of the parts more excellent, the appearance is more gorgeous, and the touch is more suitable.

  • injection molding productsThe addition of talcum powder can significantly improve the mechanical properties of injection molded products, reduce the depression caused by the shrinkage of the gate and edge of injection molded parts, and improve the appearance effect and hand sensibility.

  • Plastics for Home AppliancesThe addition of talcum powder can make it resistant to aging, sun protection, fading, heat insulation, heat preservation, flame retardant and sound insulation.

 

2. Precautions when using talcum powder

 

(1) Talc powder must be surface modified

 

The purpose is to improve the compatibility between talcum powder and plastic raw materials, and improve the application effect. Different surface treatment agents should be selected for different plastics.

 

(2) the dispersion of talcum powder in plastic raw materials

 

Under the condition of the same formula, the dispersion of talcum powder in the plastic raw material has a great influence on the final physical and chemical properties of the modified material, which should be strictly controlled in the production process.

 

The main factors affecting the dispersion of talcum powder in plastic raw materials are formula, temperature, yield, process and so on. In addition, when the amount of talc added is large, it can be added step by step to achieve a good dispersion effect.

 

(3) For different plastics, different specifications of talcum powder should be selected

 

This is very particular, the choice may be counterproductive, because different plastics, different products, different conditions of use have different requirements for raw materials, so we must make different choices in order to achieve the desired effect.

Fillers in coatings are usually white or slightly colored pigments with a refractive index less than 1.7. It has the basic physical and chemical properties of pigments used in coatings, but due to its refractive index being similar to the film-forming material, it is transparent in coatings and does not have the coloring and covering power of coloring pigments. It is an indispensable pigment in coatings.

Mineral materials refer to the material products obtained by processing and transforming natural minerals (mainly non-metallic minerals) or rocks as the main raw materials, or minerals or rocks that can be directly used as materials and aim to utilize their main physical and chemical properties. This meaning mainly includes the following four aspects: first, natural minerals and rocks that can be directly utilized or processed to be utilized; Secondly, finished or semi-finished materials made mainly from natural non-metallic minerals and rocks through physical and chemical reactions; Thirdly, artificially synthesized minerals or rocks; Fourthly, the direct utilization targets of these materials are mainly their own physical or chemical properties, not limited to individual chemical elements.
