Why Our Feet Don’t Fade, Masterbatch Quality and Standards Specifications

At TTFS we pride ourselves on the quality of our products. You may not know that we are so confident in our products quality that we offer a five year UV and Anti-Aging Guarantee on all our Safety Orange Temporary Fence Feet.

However, you are probably unsure as to why we are so incredibly confident in our Blowmoulded Concrete Temporary Fence Feet?

The answer is simple, we use Nuplex Australian Made Masterbatch in the plastic coating on our Safety Orange Temporary Fence Feet.

What is Masterbatch?

Masterbatch is the is a plastic additive that is added to a plastic product in the initial manufacturing stages. It has enhancing properties, making products Anti-Static, UV-Stable, Anti-Aging and Dust-Free which can minimise health and safety risks in the end product.

Masterbatch has an optimum dispersion of pigments/additives ensuring colours are even, they don’t fade and they are durable and long-lasting.

Why Australian Made Masterbatch?

TTFS Temporary Fence Feet are designed and manufactured to the highest standard you will find in the Temporary Fencing Industry. Many other temporary fencing provider’s feet often fade in Australian conditions. This is not ideal when the product itself can be a safety hazard and needs to be highly visible on construction sites.

We design our temp fence feet with harsh Australian climates in mind which is why Australian Made Masterbatch is used as a solid colour concentrate and protectant. This assists us in ensuring our feet are compliant with the highest Safety and Environmental Guidelines and means our customers get high quality products, that are the safest for your site.

TTFS product development with Nuplex

Brett Staples, Market Development Manager, at Nuplex Masterbatch Group, had the following to say about us TTFS working with Nuplex to further develop our quality products.

Nuplex Masterbatch was approached by TTFS to assist in design and development of a colourfast and durable colour for their Safety Orange Blowmoulded Temporary Fence Feet.

Their aim was to have a superior performing product to what their competitors are sourcing out of China, with poor colour retention and high levels of premature product failure.

With longevity and a high-performance product in mind, Nuplex were tasked with developing a robust and durable product that would retain its colour integrity, as well as supplement physical and performance properties of the resin for the total service life.

Upon completion of the development and testing phase, Nuplex Masterbatch commenced commercial supply to TTFS. This supply relationship continues to be ongoing with other commercial product developments and supply to TTFS.

Using Nuplex Masterbatch in our Temporary Fence Feet is just one example of our continued research, development and rigorous testing that helps us produce the highest quality products in the Australian Temporary Fence industry.
