Our masterbatch materials support all processing technologies, including blow molding, profile and sheet extrusion, injection molding, film and fibers. Color masterbatches are a concentrated mixture of pigments to which dispersants are added to ensure the optimal dispersion of these pigments in a carrier resin. The carrier resin is compatible with the plastic material in which it will be blended during molding. Our color masterbatches provide processors with a consistent, reliable and economical means to color raw polymer during the plastics manufacturing process.
All the color masterbatch we produce is custom formulated, using high- quality raw materials and sophisticated double-screw mixing technology. We have continually invested in state-of-the-art compounding equipment, including counter and co-rotating extruders, at both production locations.
Colorants are specified for an optimal price/performance ratio depending on the polymer, processing temperature, proofing (light, weather, migration), physiological harmlessness, the product's shelf life, tooling and processing technology, mixing and dosing - volumetric or gravimetric - techniques, warp tendency, and chemical resistance.
