Smart pigments make beautiful black recyclable!

Even traces of Carbon Black can hinder the near infrared reflection (NIR) sorting of polymer scrap due to the pigments absorbing properties. Consequently, the plastic can not be detected for further recycling and the waste will be incinerated or landfilled.

With Sicopal® Black K 0098 FK we present a pigment that enables the sorting of black and other dark plastics by waste recycling companies. Thanks to its high purity and excellent processing stability it can even be used for multiple processing steps and closed loop recycling.
