Masterbatch is a concentrated resin used to color or enhance some characteristics of plastic products
Masterbatch is made up of a concentrated resin mixture of color, base resin and additives. The processing mixture is mixed, down to the granulator, then cooled, cut and granulated.
Masterbatch allows processing and coloring of plastic materials to bring economic efficiency in the production process.
Masterbatch color beads, used to color thermoplastics. It consists of one or more colorants and primary resins. The composition of the pigment is its formula.
Masterbatch with high density reduces loss rate high, one ton of resin can be used suitable for 25kg of color granules.
Masterbatch dilution, allowing for greater accuracy in dosing expensive components.
Solid crystal masterbatch is solvent free and tends to have a longer shelf life because it is solvent free. They usually contain 40-65% additives, however the range can vary from 15-80% in some cases.
Some benefits of Masterbatch
When compared to pigments, Masterbatch allows for greater precision in controlling the opacity or transparency of the final color products.
Predetermine the proportions of additive components in the Masterbatch, which means minimum variance in the manufacturing process.
Masterbatch provides users with better color consistency when working with large orders.
The melting process is improved because the binding agents in the Masterbatch are combined with the polymers.
Unlike Masterbatch, pigment can be released into the air during processing, contaminating adjacent production lines.
Other benefits of Masterbatch
– Easier additive combination:
Masterbatch addition is easier by mixing pellets together. No special dosing equipment is required for dosing ingredients.
– Improve product consistency and stability:
The use of Masterbatch additive improves product consistency and stability through better dispersibility.
– Is a safe material to use:
– Cleaner production:
Besides being safer to handle, Masterbatch additives are also cleaner. It has no pigments or other powdered additives to foam, spill or statically adhere to surfaces. This results in a cleaner production area, reduced cross-contamination and faster switching between different products.
Increase stability and shelf life of additives:
Masterbatch can help protect additives from moisture, heat and UV exposure during storage.
– Incorporating antibacterial technology more easily:
Numerous studies have shown that it is as simple as possible to incorporate antimicrobial technology for customers, taking advantage of the great benefits of Masterbatch.
