Unique Applications

Even if you don’t see your application listed on the PMC Polymer Products website, please contact us to discuss. Many of our products are custom designed after working with our customers for their unique applications.  Plastics are used in so many ways, our customers continue to impress us with their creativity and we appreciate the opportunity to work with them in developing new products together.

CustomCompounding

Custom Compounding

PMC Polymer Products supplies plastic compounders with additive masterbatches to simplify their formulations, eliminate powder handling challenges, and improve feeding accuracy of micro-ingredients where the overall loading level of an additive is relatively small. Our most popular masterbatches are highly loaded with brominated flame retardant and/or antimony trioxide, but we also have the expertise and manufacturing capability to produce custom masterbatches based on your formulation requirements. In designing new masterbatch products, we select carrier resins compatible with your plastic resin system to ensure good dispersion of additives.

Our top-tier scientists, highly trained technicians, and state-of-the-art equipment combine to provide industrial manufacturing capabilities unmatched in the industry. Farrel Continuous Mixers (FCM) providing powder loading levels up to 90 percent are utilized as are single and co-rotating twin screw extruders. We can handle pellets, powders, and liquids, offer various pellet cuts and packaging options. We would be happy to confidentially discuss your specific needs.

Roofing & Wall Cladding

Roofing & Wall Cladding

The use of plastics in construction applications continues to grow as a low cost, low maintenance, easy to install alternative to many products made from other materials. PMC Polymer Products has worked with building materials companies to develop compounds that can be injection molded into products such as roofing or siding as an alternative to wood. We also supply flame retardant masterbatch to manufacturers of roofing membranes for flat roofs.

PipeProfile

Pipe, Profile & Tubing

Plastics are the material of choice for many pipe applications because plastic pipes are low cost, easy to install, and durable. Some plastics (such as polyethylene and polypropylene) are not inherently flame retardant, the addition of flame retardants can be required to meet code requirements for certain indoor installations, or applications such as marine.

FoamInsulation

Foam Insulation

Extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam is a popular insulating material for commercial and residential construction projects. To meet flammability requirements of XPS insulation, XPS foam manufacturers add brominated flame retardant masterbatch during the extrusion process.  This addition of flame retardant reduces fire risk in the event of a building fire.  Please contact us to recommend the appropriate Endura® flame retardant masterbatch for your XPS foam application.

Film & Sheet

Film & Sheet

There are numerous film and sheet products made from plastics, and PMC Polymer Products supplies compounds and masterbatches if a film or sheet application requires enhanced properties such as flame retardancy.  In addition to being a recognized leader of flame resistant compounds, PMC Polymer Products offers an industry-leading combination of experience, expertise, and flexibility that allows us to work with you to develop custom formulations or supply standard, off-the-shelf UL listed compounds or concentrates. At PMC Polymer Products, in addition to specializing in the design and development of additive masterbatches and flame retardant compounds, we offer static dissipative masterbatches for your polyethylene film needs.
