Britec Solutions featured in Plastics Technology Magazine April 2020 edition- Be proactive in your purging program

True, it can be tough to take a machine out of production, but a purging maintenance program should be thought of as a direct line to cost savings.


Plastics processors realize that purging is a necessary evil and that every moment of downtime translates into lost profits. This raises the obvious question of “how to be proactive” in eliminating black specks, carbon buildup and degraded resin, and minimizing the need to stop production. Understandably, it is difficult to convince any processor to break into a production run to perform a purge cycle. However, controlling the issues is the ultimate goal and requires a program that is proactive rather than defensive.     Read the full article. . . . .

Qd²- Liquid Carrier System

May 11, 2020- Britec Solutions Inc. of Tyler, Texas introduces new Liquid Vehicle Technology that provides multiple attributes in Injection Molding, Blow Molding and Extrusion applications. The Qd²- Liquid Carrier System was developed to provide improved particle distribution in the polymer that support higher pigment loadings- reducing use rates; deliver superior suspension properties to eliminate hard settling of pigments; remove processing concerns such as screw slippage; and promote cost savings.

Testing and case studies have established that when used in Polypropylene the Qd²- Liquid Carrier System creates nucleation, resulting in cycle time reduction. While conducting production profiles a Customer in Texas, molding polypropylene closures yielded a 5%- cycle time reduction and 12% overall cost savings contributed to a reduction in the use rate.

Britec Solutions Inc. has been a pioneer in liquid color for over 30 years, developing carrier systems, manufacturing and consulting for some of the leading producers in the industry. With manufacturing facilities in Ohio and Texas, Britec is dedicated to delivering new and innovative technologies to the arena of color and additives for thermoplastics.
