With a full line of UV-light-absorbing optical brightener (OB) products, Mayzo Inc. (Suwanee, Ga.) offers a solution to the challenges manufacturers may encounter when using OB products. “Within our range of particle size options, we offer a fit for every customer’s specific process,” Mayzo director of sales Eduardo Padilla says. “In addition, our product has the highest purity in the market.”
Particle size and purity have direct impacts on dispersion ability. Since manufacturing processes may require only a small quantity of OB, it is critical the powder is thoroughly incorporated throughout the material to which it is added. The Mayzo Benetex OB product line features swift dissolving and reduces processing time. Mayzo’s finest-ground powder, Benetex OB Plus, even works in screen printing applications without risk of clogging equipment and in coatings requiring a silky-smooth finish.
Easy dispersion enhances manufacturing efficiency, with backend improvements when companies can buy additives in package sizes appropriate for their purposes. “Manufacturers are increasingly buying OB in small quantities to be used as a tracer, as part of their quality control function,” Mr. Padilla explains. “Mayzo can provide optical brighteners in quantities as small as 3-pound or 5-pound containers, in addition to larger drums. This packaging customization provides a big advantage in terms of cost-effectiveness.”
Further benefits of the Benetex OB product line include a brilliant, bluish-white effect that compensates for yellowing; good light-fastness and low volatility; compatibility with a wide range of organic substrates and solvents; excellent resistance to heat; and certain product forms that are FDA cleared for use in polymers, adhesives and pressure-sensitive adhesives.
In addition to advanced product attributes, Mayzo provides customers with personalized technical consultations. “Talk to us about how we can help,” Mr. Padilla says. “We are happy to tailor our products to your needs.”
