Stearate surface treatment improves wetting and reduces the agglomeration in the compound; proprietary surface treatments are beneficial as an external lubricant, act as a processing aid for extrusion and improve the LOI in EVA.
This unique natural mixture of minerals is also known as HMH. It is a proven fire retardant filler in a wide range of polymers and rubbers such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), ethylene-propylene diene monomer (EPDM) and nitrile rubber (NBR).
The combination gives a unique product in which specific properties can be optimised by selected mining and processing to fit a variety of applications.
UltraCarb has a unique 3-stage fire-retardant mechanism. Whereas the classical endothermic flame retardant fillers act by releasing water in a single action process, our premium product works as follows:
The platy, high surface area particles of our halogen-free mineral provide excellent properties when you use these as a functional filler in polymers. The products’ high heat absorption protects polymers from rapid thermal degradation and the formation of combustible products.
The typical properties of UltraCarb are:
|Specific gravity [g/cm3]||2.4|
|Surface area [m2/g]||11 – 17|
|Loose bulk density [kg/l]||0.4|
|MgO [%]||36 – 39|
|CaO [%]||6 – 9|
|SiO2 [%]||0.2 – 1|
|Loss on ignition at 1,000°C||51 – 54|
The naturally occurring mixtures of Hydromagnesite and Huntite mineral deposits are formed by near surface geochemical processes. The formation of our Turkish deposits is the result of three specific conditions:
The precipitation of HMH is related to the mixing of ground water with fresh water from the lake environment.
Our UltraCarb is a non-toxic, non-hazardous stable mineral.
Our customers use industrial minerals to improve constructions, increase safety and reduce costs.
