Silvergate's Wrexham, North Wales plant
Silvergate Plastics has formulated a new additive that it says enables increased output, lower energy costs and better colour dispersion in the production of PVC products.
The new additive is produced using the company’s Optiblo technology, which Silvergate says enables “outstanding dispersion” whilst also increasing the speed of production to deliver a more profitable output.
Aimed specifically at PVC producers, the technology reportedly has the ability to eradicate many of the inherent production problems experienced by manufacturers of PVC profiles and sheet. Silvergate says the technology is already achieving “great results” for many producers operating across Europe.
“We have been running trials with a number of PVC producers and all are experiencing similar results: increased output, lower energy costs and better colour dispersion in the end products – and all within a much faster time,” explained Tony Bestall, Silvergate’s Managing Director.
“There is no other product on the market that can improve operating efficiencies, increase productivity and consistently improve the aesthetics of a finished component. Optiblo is considerably effective and reasonably priced, which is why we urge more PVC producers to test it and realise the many benefits it offers.”
Optiblo technology is available for all plastics producers in all colours and any order size.
