A double-digit CHF million investment will further optimize the existing facility and enable the creation of a new state-of-the-art production line for Clariant’s SynDane maleic anhydride (MA) catalyst.

Clariant Additive Masterbatch Makes Black Plastic Packaging ‘Visible’ to Sorting Systems

Tests on high-density polyethylene (HDPE) also showed positive results (see graph). HDPE with CESA-IR shows a curve similar to the uncolored HDPE curve and distinct from the LDPE curve and allowing for easy separation. PET and C-PET sheet and film were also tested by TOMRA Sorting Recycling, with similarly positive results. 
(Graph: Clariant)New Clariant CESA®-IR additive masterbatches are now available to make dark-colored plastics visible to the near-infrared (NIR) sensors used in automated polymer sorting systems. While many companies use black packaging to brand their prestige products, the problems it poses in recycling systems has led to calls for black to be phased out of the palette. The new masterbatches help to resolve that issue and allows increased recycling rates in Europe and elsewhere.

Clariant making its Additives fit for reuse, halogen-free flame retardant allowing re- and up-cycling of PA6 & PA66

Halogen-free flame retardant Exolit OP enables increased recyclate percentage in E&E & automotive parts at stable flame retardancy. 
(Photo: Clariant)As announced end June, Clariant is taking action to tackle the challenge of plastic pollution with new solutions and proactive steps to create a more sustainable plastics industry through a “Symphony of Collaboration”. Clariant is supporting the industry with environmentally-compatible solutions and in designing materials and products which are easier to separate, recover, and reuse. One way to approach this challenge is to improve our additives, making them fit for re-use while avoiding material performance degradation.

Clariant maintains a strong patent position in phosphinate based flame retardants and continues to take legal action against infringers

Clariant maintains a strong patent position in phosphinate based flame retardants and continues to take legal action against infringers. (Photo: Shutterstock)Despite Clariant’s significant worldwide intellectual property (IP) position related to phosphinate flame retardant products, we are concerned that some polymer compounders and Original Equip-ment Manufacturers (OEMs) are considering local Chinese suppliers for diethylphosphinate alu-minium salt (DEPAL) based flame retardants. This class of halogen free flame retardants, often combined with nitrogen containing and inorganic synergists, have become workhorses in engi-neering thermoplastics, mainly glass filled polyamides and polyesters, but also epoxy resins. Clariant has been developing and advancing this technology for over two decades, so that our pa-tented Exolit® OP flame retardants have become the benchmark in quality and performance for phosphinate flame retardants in the market.

Clariant to focus on its core high value specialty businesses

Clariant and SABIC have agreed to temporarily suspend the discussions on the intended business combination High Performance Materials (HPM), consisting of Clariant’s Additives and high value Masterbatches and parts of SABIC’s Specialties business.

Clariant grows sales and operating cash flow in the first half year 2019

“The first half year 2019 was admittedly challenging - particularly the second quarter, which was additionally impacted by temporary negative influences and one-off occurrences. Our continuing businesses showed resilience in this difficult environment, which comforts us in our strategic decision to divest Masterbatches and Pigments,” said Hariolf Kottmann, Executive Chairman of Clariant. “Despite the uncertainties of the current economic environment, the growth profile of our continuing portfolio remains unchanged. We will continue to intensify our focus on customer experience and fast reliable customer fulfillment, enabling Clariant to realize above-market growth, higher profitability and stronger cash generation.”
