Masterbatch is a solid or liquid additive for plastic used for coloring plastics (color masterbatch) or imparting other properties to plastics (additive masterbatch). Masterbatch is a concentrated mixture of pigments and/or additives encapsulated during a heat process into a carrier resin which is then cooled and cut into a granular shape. Masterbatch allows the processor to colour raw polymer economically during the plastics manufacturing process.
Additive masterbatches modify various properties of the base plastic:
· Color masterbatches
· ultraviolet light resistance
· flame retardant
· corrosion inhibitors for metals packaged in plastic
· extrusion aids
Our masterbatch solutions include an array of additive materials that enhance the performance of Polymer films, parts, improve manufacturing efficiency, reduce manufacturing downtime and enable smooth product transitions – available in a variety of physical forms for different applications.
