Orion Engineered Carbons S.A., a supplier of specialty and high-performance carbon black, has introduced a packaging system with soluble and meltable Minibags for dust-free and sustainable handling. Minibags are available for different material types, melting points and capacities. They have been designed to optimize the production process and serve small order quantities ranging from 100 g to 10 kg. Minibags are suitable for both powder and beaded carbon blacks.
Carbon Black is a dusty and fluffy substance often presenting handling and packaging challenges, the company says. Minibags are said to mitigate these challenges by allowing for direct incorporation into the production process without the need to open the bags. Depending on the material, Minibags are either water-soluble or meltable in polymers, thus reducing waste and enabling the dust-free processing of carbon black. All common polyethylene and other compatible elastomer bases as well as ethylene vinyl acetate or polyvinyl alcohol are offered as Minibag material.
Orion Engineered Carbons also offers small aluminum bags, in such cases where moisture protection is more important.
