Masterbatch (MB) is a solid or liquid additive for plastics that is used to color plastics (Color Masterbatch) or to impart other properties of plastics (additive masterbatch). Masterbatch is a concentrated mixture of pigments and / or additives that is encapsulated in a carrier resin during a heat process, which is then cooled and cut into a granular form.
Masterbatch allows the processor to economically color crude polymer during the plastic manufacturing process. Masterbatch increases productivity by increasing volumetric efficiency (as a result of thermal conductivity and volume expansion to temperature), reduces costs and improves the physical properties of plastics such as: higher toughness, flexural stiffness, adhesion, printability.
Additive masterbatches modify various properties of the base plastic such as
- UV resistance
- Flame retardancy
- Corrosion inhibitors
- Extrusion aids
Applications of Masterbatch Additives
Blown Film & Lamination, PP Bast / Yarn, PP Nonwoven, Blow Molding, Injection Molding, Thermoformed Sheet, HDPE / PP Pipe Extrusion
