NIR detectable Black Masterbatches for plastics from Performance Masterbatches will optimise current sensor-based sorting and recycling facilities without the need to upgrade current technology that enables the mechanical recycling of Black packaging currently destined for landfil.
The result has the potential to create new business for packing manufactures while delivering benefits over existing waste management options.
Our NIR Blacks allow Near Infra-Red (NIR) spectroscopy to sort Black plastic packaging waste. We have several specific versions which will work in APET, CPET, PP, HDPE, PS and PVC materials.
Additionally, they offer improvements in recycling revenues as well as saving in Carbon emissions and landfill volumes.
