Anti-UV Masterbatch consist of a concentrated blend of pigments and/or encapsulated additives manufactured through a process of heating a carrier resin, then cooled and cut into a granular form. Thus, the Anti-UV masterbatch allows the transformer to color the natural polymer economically in the plastics processing process.
We have Process Aide, color, black, combi or additive masterbatches (with solid or liquid carriers), which aim at coloring or giving other properties to the plastics – color or additive masterbatch.
The carrier of the masterbatch should be identical/compatible with the polymer. For example, EVA or LDPE is a carrier compatible with polyolefins and nylon, just as polystyrene is used as a carrier for ABS, SAN and sometimes polycarbonates.
In this sense, when the carrier of the masterbatch is incompatible with the raw material, changes in the properties of the transformed material may occur. The converter must specify the characteristics of the raw material. The percentage of use of masterbatches in relation to the raw material is between 1 to 5 %. Color masterbatches and additive(s) may be combined.
Masterbatches are compatible with most processes, with the exception of rotational molding, plastisol and other liquid resin systems.
ADPLAST® provides a wide range of Color Masterbatches with a concentration up to 80% titanium dioxide based on PE, PP, PS, PA, ABS and Polyester. Black Masterbatch range has applicability in: labels, lamination, protective films, coating, agriculture, thin-wall packaging, fibers and nonwovens, bottles, injection-molded articles, etc.
Indeed, we have tailor-made solutions capable of achieving excellent quality-performance ratios.
