I. Polypropylene Flame Retardent Master Batches

One of the most colossal hazard facing human kind since the advent of fire is “FIRE” it self. Though the FIRE was one of the important mile stone in development of Civilization, it is a common fact that fire is one of the most dangerous agents of catastrophic loss, untold misery and lethal tool in the hands of scrupulous people since prehistoric times.

In the modern times the Synthetics and Plastics form the major part of the house hold goods and furnishings. The danger of fire related loss has increased multifold since it is a known fact that in presence of air, organic materials are potential source of fire hazard.

PPL has developed an effective halogen free flame retardant MB suitable for wide spectrum of polypropylene filament and fiber applications.

Our products can be processed on LOY, POY and FDY spinning routes over a broad denier range.

II. Polypropylene Antimicrobial Master Batches

Increasing public concern about hygiene has been driving consumer demand for Antimicrobials in Polypropylene Carpets, knitted fabrics, woven fabrics, upholsteries and non-wovens.

A variety of bacteria are known for their pathogenic and foul odour effects and have pushed demand for Antimicrobial Products.

Our PP antimicrobial MBs are highly effective against wide range of Gram Positive and Gram Negative Bacterias and other Pathogens.

The low migration rates, high activity and thermal stability upto 300 deg. Celsius provides effective inhibition against bacteria for whole life cycle of products.

Our product is safe for humans and environment due to its very low migration solubility in water.

Technical Data

Efficacy Testing

The value of Anti-microbial activity was checked as per JIS-L 1902 Quantitative test against Staphylococcus and Escherichia Coli.

  Type of Bacteria Bacteriostatic value (S)
  S. aureus ATCC 6538P - 4.2
  E. coli NBRC 3301 - 4.0

Bacteriostatic value (S) = (log B – log C)
B = Number of living bacteria on test pieces after 18 hr incubation on standard cloth
C = Number of living bacteria on test pieces after 18 hr incubation on antibacterial treated sample
