GDT supply a range of masterbatches from Symphony Environmental Co:
d2w oxo-biodegradable additive which when blended with raw material at the manufacturing stage, turns ordinary plastic at the end of its useful life, in the presence of oxygen, into a material with a different molecular structure. At the end of that process, it is no longer a plastic and has become a material which will disappear in the open environment in the same way as a leaf.
Applications: T-shirt bags, Retail bags, bread bags, trash bags, shrInk wrap, cups, cutlery.
- d2p antibacterial additive provides an extra layer of protection against transmission of bacteria through contact with everyday items, it is successfully tested against over 50 common organisms including dangerous bacteria such as MRSA, E.coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Pseudomonas and Aspergillus Niger.
Applications: almost anything made of plastic or has a plastic coating could have d2p incorporated at manufacture stage.
d2p antifungal additive is designed to provide hygienic protection to your products, it can be added to most polymers during the manufacturing process to provide excellent resistance to fungi, bacteria and algae. It is successfully tested against fungi, such as M. Piriformis and P. Roqueforti, bacteria and algae.
Applications: to increase shelf life of fresh food, reduce requirements for food preservatives, inhibit mold growth on food and non-food applications.
- d2tag provides a highly sophisticated security solution using a microtag smaller than a grain of salt with over 1 billion unique codes for authentication and brand protection.
- d2trace is a masterbatch tracer technology which provides plastic with a unique traceable property. It is compatible with the vast majority of plastics.
- d2detector is a handheld device patented by Symphony Environmental specially designed to analyze the composition of plastic products and prevent fraud. The device allows rapid results in less than 60 seconds giving precise indication on the level of d2w composition included in the plastic.
