It allows the resin to withstand the high line speed and maintain the film quality with reduced breakages and significant gel and black spot reduction.

Exolit OP: The Exolit OP series offers environmentally optimised non-halogenated, organophosphorus flame retardants for engineering thermoplastics and thermosets. Exolit OP 1400 provides enhanced thermal stability for polyamides, enabling complex injection moulded parts to be manufactured at high processing temperatures. It is suitable for hot and humid environments and has been awarded the Clariant EcoTain label for outstanding sustainability and best-in-class performance. EcoTain labelled products have undergone a systematic, in-depth screening process using 36 criteria in all three sustainability dimensions: social, environmental and economic.

Licocene and Licomont: High-performing Licocene, Clariant's low molecular polyolefins, act as very effective dispersing agents for high-quality colour and additive masterbatches to meet increasing requirements from the plastics sector. The Montan wax specialities, Licomont CaV 102 and Licomont NaV 101, reduce cycle times significantly, provide high thermal stability and offer better processing conditions for selected engineering thermoplastics that are processed at higher temperatures.

"Clariant brings performance along with colouration to plastics and its applications. The colour range offered by Clariant meets the necessary compliance requirements of different industry segments. The wide range of engineering resins and high-temperature materials in small-lot compounds, together with our locally-produced masterbatches in India, will save a considerable amount of time for our customers in their production pipeline, while reducing significantly costs involved in logistics and having enhanced formulation expertise," said Sandeep Puri, head – masterbatches, Clariant in India.

"Clariant in India is fully geared up to address new challenges, by way of local availability of high-performance pigments and pigment dispersions.
