New prospects for WPCs

NEFA® MB – coloration and functional features in one

A new material is becoming established on patios and balconies, but also increasingly on house facades: Wood Plastic Composites (WPCs) are composite materials containing various proportions of wood, which, due to their positive material properties, are achieving ever more recognition. WPCs are attractive due to their longevity and advantageous physical properties which are superior to those of the classical wooden boards.

With the colour and additive masterbatches NEFA® MB we offer you a true performance product which has a very positive influence on the working properties of highly filled, polymer-bound fibre materials. Dispensing with all dispersion agents during the manufacture of NEFA® MB also has a direct, positive effect on the mechanical properties of your WPC. NEFA® MB noticeably improves the slippage and flow properties of the composite melt – with simultaneous reduction of the working temperature. For materials with a very high fibre content this becomes apparent through a significant load relief and reduced wear on the extruder or on the injection moulding machine.

NEFA® MB is adjusted to customer's individual requirements. Have a word with us. We would be pleased to advise you.
