Many years of experience and a competent agronomic and agrochemical knowledge make VIBA products differ from the market standards and suitable to meet any kind of specific requirement aimed at the protection of crops.
The VIBATAN® range comprises UV Master Agents which confer an adequate protection from sun’s rays to film (for greenhouses, mulching and ensiling), to raffia, monofilament and woven non-woven and Antifog and Antimist masterbatches which avoid fogging of the greenhouse film caused by the formation of condensation of water droplets. We can offer Cooling Agents which reduce temperature inside the greenhouse without depriving crops inside of the benefits of UV radiation and Photoselective Agents which are primarily used in mulching films, so as to impede the growth of weeds whilst maintaining the soil warm and reducing the evaporation of H2O. We range from specific Antiviruses for greenhouse cover films, able to prevent the transmission of harmful viruses by insects, to specific Masterbatches for solarization films employed for soil sterilization, thus reducing the usage of chemical compounds.
In recent years the production of flexible packaging has grown remarkably; at the same time the development of new polymers has rendered this continuously evolving industry even more sophisticated and VIBA, in constant partnership with main transformers and extrusion machinery producers, has developed a wide range of additive Masterbatches which can be combined with VIBATAN® pigment formulations.
One ranges from single colour or additive concentrates to a combination of these. Amongst the polymers which support these Masterbatches we find: traditional ones such as Polyethylene (LLDPE, LDPE and HDPE), Polypropylene (Homopolymer or Copolymer for bubble extrusion, cast extrusion and BOPP), Polystyrene and more innovative ones such as Technopolymers (PA, PET) and Biopolymers (PLA – thermoplastic starch).
We are thus able to offer the most adequate solution for every need, providing both traditional as well and specific innovative solutions for the most varied requests coming from the market.
VIBA offers excellent solutions to meet the multiple requirements of the rigid packaging market and its ever-increasing applications: PET bottles, thermoformed trays, food containers or those of the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. We are absolutely in a position to offer a complete range of Masterbatches that can satisfy every kind of request, in full compliance with the strict regulations in force.
The solutions we offer for all food and beverage packaging applications include specialised polymers to create powerful and effective film layers (metallised, transparent and more) that keep out oxygen, light and moisture and thus prevent deterioration and contamination.
Our products also provide an eye-catching final aesthetic effect that enhances the attractiveness of products and makes them stand out.
VIBA provides a wide range of Masterbatches specifically made for goods produced by extrusion.
Extruded goods are characterized by different thicknesses: very high for tubes or sheets, very thin for raffia and woven non-woven. This requires utmost attention for the choice of ingredients in the formulation of the Masterbatches, whose high colorimetric yield and low percentage usage allows for a significant containment of costs, thus contributing to the competitiveness of the finished product.
The outstanding technical and superior characteristics of these Masterbatches meet in full the strict Norms of quality controls.
Our company’s know-how is essential to realise projects in step with changing technological and commercial trends and to offer very effective and durable solutions, if compared to many alternatives available on the market.
This is the industry in which VIBA’s creativity can stretch at it maximum in the infinite variety of colour shades, special effects and additive features, all in wide variety of polymers.
For this industry in constant evolution we avail ourselves of an extremely wide range of products which can give an assured result to each requirement. Both for strictly aesthetic applications as well as with performance requirements.
We can offer Colour Masterbatches countertypeing main worldwide colour standards (Pantone, RAL and NCS, etc.), Pearlescent Masterbatches, Metallized effect Masterbatches, Iridescent effect Masterbatches, Fragrance Masterbatches, Combined Masterbatches (Pigments plus additives), Anti-distortion Masterbatch for the manufacturing of large goods in polyolefin resins.
VIBA operates in full compliance with the ecological and non-toxic characteristics according to the main international standards.
Our expertise in creating blow-moulding materials covers a wide range of needs and industries. Our Laboratory cooperates with customers to create products that perfectly meet requirements and specifications for colour, strength, opacity and other critical factors. We have innovative Masterbatches made for use in injection-blow moulding, extrusion-blow moulding and ISBM (Injection Stretch Blow Moulding) in the food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and many other industries. This has enabled our company to create highly performing formulations dedicated to all kinds of specific requirements.
Biodegradable polymers have been subject to intense research since there has been a pressing demand to have new materials available as an alternative to plastics with a high environmental impact. These originate from renewable non-polluting raw materials and are characterized by a short decay period in which they revert to natural elements.
As always alert to the new requirements of the market VIBA’s Laboratories have developed innovative Biopolymer Masterbatches. These are easily transformed with conventional methods and machinery and perfectly suitable for the productions of goods that have to meet the parameters of the European Norm UNI EN 13432.
The research for raw materials as an origin for Biopolymers is in constant evolution as well as the production of Biopolymers which are more and more differentiated so as to meet the requirements of the most diverse applications. VIBA has developed its Masterbatches differentiating them in two main families: VIBATAN® PLA, colour concentrate additives or combined Masterbatches supported on various grades of Polylactic Acid, selected in accordance to the transformation process and use (extrusion of film or sheets and injection moulding or blow moulding) and VIBATAN® MB Bio, colour concentrates supported on different grades of thermoplastic resin derived from starch (thermoplastic starch), selected according to the end use.
These product families have been formulated in strict accordance to the guidelines and restrictions of the European composting Norm UNI EN 13432.
VIBA offers a wide range of VIBATAN® masterbatches for WPC Wood Plastic Composite) suitable for the colouring and additivating of polymers with wood flour filler on HDPE, PP and PVC base.
The product range comprises coloured Masterbatches available in 15 standard colour shades as well as tailor made with specific pigments selected in accordance to the application for which WPC is intended (external or internal use). We can also offer Masterbatches developed to aid the processing during extrusion phase, to confer an adequate protection against the degradation due to outdoor use and the proliferation of fungi.
