The highlighted portfolio of innovative solutions includes Omya Smartfill, functionalised calcium carbonate for usage in biopolymers, and in particular for polylactic acid (PLA) and polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA). It will provide stable processing conditions and improved performance as a natural biopolymer enhancer while also contributing to a decrease in overall formulation cost.
The Omyaloop family is committed to helping transform the polymer industry into a more circular economy. Omyaloop FC is a fully recycled product portfolio composed of selected recovered material from various sectors that would otherwise be disposed of as waste. It is certified as 100% recycled by Bureau Veritas. Omyaloop MIX is used in the recycling, and it improves the mechanical performance of recycled polyolefin blends, such as polyethylene and polypropylene.
OmyaPET provides strong UV protection for white opaque PET; for example UHT milk bottles and BOPET films replacing other opacifying additives. OmyaPET r100 provides more heat stability to PET products enabling the use of recycled PET in pasteurised and microwaveable packaging and vending cups.
