Masterbatch Carrier

A Unique way to create value in masterbatches.

Key benefits of Vistamaxx™ polymers:

  • Fully compatible with polyethylene and polypropylene
  • Better wetting and dispersion
  • Lower processing temperature
  • Higher thermal and color stability

Solutions for the value chain:

  • Masterbatchproducers
  • Converters
  • Brand Owners

Versatile technical solutions:
