PLASBLAK® PE2642 is a premium grade black masterbatch designed primarily for use in
agricultural film applications but also suitable for use in sheet and geomembranes. Careful
selection of a small particle size weathering grade carbon black and thermal stabilisation
package ensures optimum weathering protection is given to the end product during its
service life. PLASBLAK® PE2642 combines excellent weathering protection with easy dispersion
and dilution to ensure the highest film quality.
PLASBLAK® PE2642 is recommended for use in high opacity mulch film where multi-season
performance is required. It is particularly suitable for very high masterbatch addition
levels in thin film to allow attainment of maximum opacity without detriment to the surface
quality of the film.
SILAGE SHEET/CLAMP SILO FILM
PLASBLAK® PE2642 is particularly recommended for use in black-white co-extruded silage film
where its weathering properties are combined with excellent opacifying properties in thin
SILAGE STRETCH WRAP/BALE WRAP FILM
PLASBLAK® PE2642 is recommended for use in the manufacture of monolayer silage stretchwrap
film where the extrusion design provides medium to high levels of distributive mixing.
PLASBLAK® PE2642 is recommended for use in geomembranes where its excellent weathering
resistance and dispersion characteristics are an essential requirement.
This product is suitable for use in a wide range of plastics that come into contact with
food . For more details regarding the food contact compliance in various European countries,
