MASTERSAFE SYMIC

MASTERSAFE SYMIC A/C/E 001L and MASTERSAFE SYMIC C 393 are pigment preparations based upon synthetic mica. MASTERSAFE SYMIC is a de-dusted product form that has been compacted into pellet - extending the SYMIC product range as an added-value product.

What is a de-dusted pigment preparation?

De-dusted pigment preparations have been compressed into a pellet form together with a carrier. Compacting into a pelletized granule increases (doubles) the bulk density. Pelletized granules are condensed, meaning reduced dust during handling and production of plastic goods. 

Conventional pigments are usually available in powder form, which can create dust during transportation or processing. Dust is basically composed of airborne fines that is generated upon handling the materials. This can be avoided with de-dusted plastic pigment preparations.

Where can de-dusted pigment preparations be used/applied?

Pelletized granules can be used in automotive plastic parts, household appliances, cosmetics packaging and even the electronics like tablets and phones.
