Functional masterbatch technology

Pulcra@2spin is a range of solid masterbatch additives, providing different functionalities for a wide range of man-made fibres. 

Product Features

  • The functionality is locked into the fibre to increase durability.
  • Broad range of functionalities.
  • No adverse effects on appearance, weight and colour.
  • More flexibility in dosing level and usage.
  • Easy use and monitoring of consumption.
  • Sustainable technology: no additional cleaning, water or energy required in the downstream production process.
  • No to little impact in the production process.

How it works

The functional masterbatches need to be added during the extrusion process prior to the melting of the polymer by means of a dosing unit. Different Pulcra@2spin products are available for different polymers, including PP, PA, PES or PLA. All our innovations are tested on the Spin Master, a semiindustrial extrusion and spinning line developed to facilitate and accelerate the transfer of technology from lab scale to industrial scale.

Functionalities include

  • soft touch (100 series)
  • flame retardant properties (200 series)
  • dyeable PP (400 series)
  • friction control (400 series)
  • odour control (700 series)
