NEWFOUNDLAND - Trinity Resources has introduced a new antiblock additive to the plastic film industry. Altiblock™ is produced from the company’s pyrophyllite deposit. This is a new, alternative product for plastic film manufacturers. An antiblocking mineral additive prevents two layers of plastic film from sticking together (for example in a garbage bag)
Pyrophyllite is a hydrous aluminum silicate mineral, and AltiblockTM offers a natural blend of talc-like platy particles and irregular, blocky particle shapes to provide optimal blocking, clarity, film strength, barrier resistance and improved thermal efficiency of the film.
“The morphology of Altiblock™ combines the best attributes of talc, nepheline syenite and DE in one product," said John Hurley, president and CEO of Trinity Resources.
Trinity’s Altiblock™ offers:
Trinity’s Altiblock™ is available in four distinct sizes including 2, 4, 6 and 9 micron sizes with distinct morphology and particle size distribution curves. For a talc replacement Altiblock™ D400 can greatly improve block force and clarity, and for a diatomaceous earth replacement Altiblock™ D900 can improve clarity while being equivalent in block force.
Trinity Resources is a private company, owning and operating a world-class pyrophyllite deposit in Newfoundland, Canada. The company is currently mining, milling and shipping their pyrophyllite products to markets worldwide. For a list of Trinity's Canadian and European distributors visit our website or click here.
