Our batches meet today's challenges like dosage reduction of Masterbatches and weight reduction of end products. Mechanical or physical properties are not affected.

Our color Masterbatches cope with all required EEC or/and FDA food contact regulations and also cope with highest expectations regarding organoleptic properties and VOC.'s.

NEW: We also offer solutions for integrated O2 and/or CO2 barriers

Granula AG - Caps & Closures – Minimaler Aufwand, optimale Leistung
Perfect, weight reduced caps at minimized dosage rates: our specialty.

Plastic parts for medical applications - Granula Medical Masterbatches & Compounds.
The formulation of Masterbatches for components and parts for the medical industries requires a convincing know how, especially regarding polymers.

The correct selection of the most appropriated polymer is decisive for the end product to reach the specified criteria such as minimal shrinkage and warpage even during sterilization processes. 

We offer a wide range of additives, e.g. UV protection, flow additives, scratch or disinfectant restistance enhancers. Also antimicrobial or laser laser marking marking additives and many more are available.

Interaction between Pigments, Polymers and Additives must be known and taken into consideration in order to achieve a perfect end product.

The production of all such parts should remain easy and as cost effective as possible. We offer agents cycle times reduction and other cost effective para- meters.

Our Medical Masterbatches & Compounds are manufactured according IS0 13485 and we guarantee a total traceability of all our batches up to the raw materials used and its suppliers.

Rotomolding – complex shapes, perfect colours
Highly complex and asymmetrical parts like kanus or tanks require modern process engineering.

We manufacture coloured powders with excellent flow characteristics for an easy and homogenous filling of the most complex molds.

A selection of UV and AO stabilizedf base polymers such as LLDPE’s, HDPE or PP meets the the physical and mechanical requirements of an application.

Our formulation of pigments, additives and "little secrets" is tuned to complement the polymer properties in order to provide you with best mixture for your roto- molding application

Granula AG - Rotomolding – Perfekte Form, perfekte Farben
Easy processing inclusive: Granula Rotomolding mixtures are tuned for most complex shapes.

Foam – optimized masterbatches, easy processing
Foamed polymers - physically and chemically foamed - need special colour and additive compounds that are dedicated to your specific foaming process. Our Masterbatches do not interfere with the nucleation or cross-linking process and support the foaming process.

We offer a wide range of UV, AO or metal deactivators compounds as well as colour Masterbatches for the polymer foaming industry. Our products may also be used in combination with flame retardants. 

Granula AG - Schaumstoffe – Optimierte Masterbatches, problemlose Verarbeitung
Perfect foams, easy to process: our compounds and masterbatches are specially tuned to the foaming process.

Compounds – an interesting alternative
Compounds are special mixtures of one or more polymers including fillers and additives. We do not manufacture standard compounds, but we gladly offer you our broad know-how in this sector for your specific projects.

At certain complex applications Masterbatch can reach at its technical limitation. In such cases we develop and manufacture custom-made compounds fitting specific technical requirements of your products.

Granula AG - Compounds – Grosses Know-how, spezifische Lösungen
Customized solutions: Compounds make the most complex applications possible.

Additives – Protection systems / process optimization

Oxygen, light and heat degrade polymers during processing and its whole life time. The results are changes of color shapes up to discoloration and reduction of mechanical and physical properties.

Such degradation not only affects the value of an end product but can even make it unusable.

Appropriate additives make your products fit for most severe conditions of use. Keeping their shapes, their properties and their value for a determined lifespan.

Other additives protect the content of packagings like for instance food against Oxygen, UV etc..

Granula AG - Additiv-Masterbatches
Protection systems: our additive combination Masterbatches to meet nearly any challenge.
