Bottles & Caps

  • Blow Molded, Compression Molded, Injection Molded
  • Cosmetic, Household Cleaning, Milk & Juice Bottles
  • Reduced processing temperatures
  • Faster cycle times
  • Improved dimensional stability
  • Higher loads of Oshenite® provides possible down gauging because of increased stiffness
  • Improved stress cracking
  • Same or improved drop impact resistance
  • FDA approved
  • Colors Available

 

 

Manufacturing Benefits

  • Purity allows for significantly higher percentages of Oshenite® carriers to be used compared with mined calcium carbonate replacing higher cost plastic resins
  • Homogeneous dispersion improves processing, product performance and quality
  • Sustainable Naturally Renewable Resource with lower carbon footprint offers environmental benefits
  • Material offers consistency of color, quality and performance from order to order
  • Unlimited supply with stable pricing
  • FDA approved for food contact

 

 

Film, Sheet, Extrusion Coatings (LLDPE, LDPE, HDPE, CO‐EX)

  • High purity and excellent dispersion allows increased percentages to be used replacing high cost resins
  • Lower processing temperatures compared to calcium carbonate
  • Excellent dispersion improves product consistency
  • Improves impact strength and stiffness
  • Increases production output and line speed
  • Improves thermal stability
  • Improved dart, tear resistance and stiffness allow for possible down gauging
  • Provides faster heating and cooling
  • Reduces material costs

 

 

Thermoformed Sheeting and Products (PE, PP, PS, EPS)

  • High purity and excellent dispersion allows increased percentages to be used replacing high cost resin
  • Excellent dispersion improves product consistency
  • Lower processing temperatures versus calcium carbonate
  • Increased extruder output
  • Faster cooling time on chill roll
  • Reduced cooling time in molds
  • Faster cycle times
  • Lower shrinkage and distortion
  • Improved forming accuracy
  • Very good heat deflection

 

 

Blow Molding

  • Extremely high purity and homogeneous dispersion allows for increased % to replace more costly resins
  • Excellent dispersion improves product consistency
  • Increased flexural modulus
  • Sustained top load and drop impact
  • Increased stiffness and impact resistance
  • Reduced cycle times
  • Lower melt temps
  • Improved printability and adhesive adhesion

 

 

Injection Molding (PP, PS, LDPE, HDPE)

  • High purity and excellent dispersion allows increased percentages to be used replacing high cost resins
  • Excellent dispersion improves product consistency
  • Increased stiffness
  • Improved impact resistance
  • Decreased shrinkage
  • Improved dimensional stability
  • Higher heat distortion temperature under load (compared to plastic resin)
  • Reduced cycle times due to faster cooling

 

 

Oshenite® with recycled resins & films Benefits

Benefits during Extrusion

 

  • Increased film output
  • Faster upstream rates
  • More homogeneous film
  • Overall improved film quality
  • Extruder remains cleaner especially running printed films
  • Ability to use higher percentages compared to mined CACO3 offer increased cost reductions
  • Extruder can produce and promote their products as “made with recycled and renewable materials”

 

Benefits to finished Bags and Films

  • Higher stiffness
  • Improved dart drop
  • Improved tear resistance
  • Improved production output
  • Faster heating and cooling of seals
  • Higher concentration compared to mined CACO3 offers increased cost savings
  • Film and bag end user can promote their product as “made with recycled and renewable materials”
