AROS MB™ HDPE – IM from Graphmatech is the latest addition to the family of graphene-enhanced polymers from Graphmatech. AROS MB HDPE is a masterbatch (i.e. ready-to-use granular mix) enhanced by our own unique Aros Graphene® Technology formula, tailored for injection moulding (IM). Now available.
The new masterbatch is part of the AROS MB product range that embodies Graphmatech’s expertise in Polymer Graphene Composites. The masterbatch can be used for testing and application evaluation in parts requiring enhanced gas barrier or electrical properties while keeping mechanical and other properties intact.
AROS MB HDPE is highly compatible with most standard high-density polyethylene (HDPE) grades available off-the-shelf and can serve as a perfect substitute for common carbon black masterbatches as it will retain the colour black while increasing the final properties of the part at a much lower concentration.
AROS MB HDPE suitable for extrusion is currently under development, set to hit the market in the first half of 2022.
