Performance Results

STEER’s advanced co-rotating twin-screw materials platform technologies are designed to help manufacturers create masterbatches that are of a high quality and unmatched consistency, delivering best possible return on investment.

 

Creating perfect masterbatches requires an in-depth understanding of mixing. Our patented special elements bridge the gaps that exist in today’s technology by;

 

  • providing control over shear rate
  • bringing uniformity in shear
  • preventing stagnation and erosion
  • solving impact related issues
  • providing the capability and control required to work with sensitive materials.

 

Besides STEER’s platforms* also allow for a narrower and sharper residence time distribution resulting in uniform work and minimal energy dissipation.

PERFECT BLACK MASTERBATCH WITH STEER’S ADVANCED DISPERSION TECHNOLOGY

 

STEER’s advanced co-rotating twin-screw platform technology helps you produce black masterbatches to meet even the most exacting specifications. Our dispersion technology is among the best in the world, ensuring outstanding quality and unmatched consistency. So whether you are looking for ultra jet black, subtle variations in shade, economical ones for colouration or even those with specific properties like UV resistance and endurance to weather extremities, you can trust STEER’s technology to create black masterbatches that keep your customers happy and help you stay well ahead of the competition.

 

 

KEY FEATURES OF BLACK MASTERBATCH PRODUCED WITH STEER TECHNOLOGY:

 

  • Exceptional Dispersion
  • Durability and Endurance
  • High Opacity
  • Compatible with a variety of additives
  • High Stability and Resistance

PERFECT WHITE MASTERBATCH

 

Titanium dioxide masterbatches are used in many applications like films, injection moulding, blow moulding and high-end rotational moulding. STEER’s technology ensures better dispersion with reduced fill (lowered pressure) during melting and mixing, using a higher Do/Di. STEER offers a wide range of white masterbatches with a concentration of up to 80% titanium dioxide based on PE, PP, PS, PA, ABS and Polyester.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR WHITE MASTERBATCH

 

 

Shear rate Bulk density Specific Energy Horizontal/Vertical setup 100% premix or split feed % of loading L/D of the machine
Low 1.2 0.1-0.12 Horizontal Setup 100% premix 60 to 70% 42 to 44

KEY FEATURES OF WHITE MASTERBATCH PRODUCED WITH STEER TECHNOLOGY:

 

  • Exceptional Dispersion
  • Thermal Stability
  • Low Water Ratio
  • Good Heat Resistance

SUPERIOR COLOUR DISPERSION FOR PERFECT COLOUR MASTERBATCHES

 

STEER’s platform technologies allow for the production of colour masterbatches that are of an extremely high quality and consistency while providing outstanding value. They comply with leading international standards and have excellent properties in colour dispersion, stability performance, surface smoothness, UV absorption and weatherability.

 

 

Besides providing standard colours, STEER also custom-makes according to customer requirements and is capable of delivering innovative solutions to some of the most challenging colour and additive applications.

WE THINK THROUGH EVERY LITTLE DETAIL

 

The compounding process is a highly specialised one and STEER is a master specialist. We think through every possible detail when it comes to designing, creating and implementing platform technologies that give you the highest possible quality at the best possible value.

 

 

STEER provides best-in class manufacturing technologies far a perfect colour masterbatch. So whether its ensuring optimum energy utilisation to minimise degradation and maximise properties, or stable and consistent operations over long periods of time, or scalability, larger volumes and responsiveness to changing input situations, STEER has the most optimal solution to create perfect masterbatch.

 

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR PERFECT MASTERBATCH

 

STEER’s advanced co-rotating twin-screw materials platforms with patented special elements and innovations, bridge the gaps that exist in today’s technology. They provide control over shear rate, bring uniformity in shear, prevent stagnation and erosion, solve impact related issues and provide the capability and control required to work with sensitive materials. Besides STEER’s platforms* also allow for a narrower and sharper residence time distribution resulting in uniform work and minimal energy dissipation. (*STEER’s 1.71 DO/DI OMEGA PLATFORM)

 

THE STEER ADVANTAGE

 

  • #1. BETTER CONTROL OVER DISPERSION - SHEAR UNIFORMITY

    FREE VOLUME, HIGH CONVEYING EFFICIENCY AND ABILITY TO BREAK UP AND COMPACT

     

     

     

    • Barrel to Screw Gap and Screw to Screw Gap are maintained at less than 0.25mm to have fully wiping effect rather than shearing effect.
    • Greater than 0.25mm, material can pass through at a low pressure values.

     

  • #2. SUPERIOR DISTRIBUTION / HOMOGENISATION

     

     

  • #3 BETTER WETTING AND KNEADING

  • #4. GREATER EFFICIENCIES AND PROCESSING CAPABILITY*

     (*ON THE OMEGA PLATFORM 1.71 Do/Di)

     

    The OMEGA extruders have a narrower and sharper residence time distribution This allows for uniform work and minimal energy dissipation

     

     

  • #5. ENHANCED PRODUCTIVITY WITH LOWER RESIDENCE TIME

    Ability to gain control over shear, kneading and stirring rates results in shorter residence time allowing for vastly enhanced productivity and highest quality

  • #6.ABILITY TO CREATE MULTIPLE COLOUR GRADES

    Self-wiping elements prevent stagnation and therefore, no tail in the residence time distribution with the ability to change multiple colour grades effectively

#1. MOC – BLUE

 

 

#2. MOC – YELLOW

 

 

#3. MOC – BLACK
