Color Range

 

 

 

Color Range for PVC consist of a concentrated mixture of pigments and/or encapsulated additives manufactured by heating a carrier resin, which is then cooled and cut into granules. The masterbatch thus allows the processor to color the natural polymer economically in the plastics processing process.

 

We have colored, black, combi or additive PVC masterbatches (with solid or liquid carriers), which aim to color or give other properties to plastics – colored or additive masterbatches.

 

 

Technical Advantages | Lifespan

 

  • Prevents problems of agglomeration of additives or colorants as well as dispersion problems.
  • It does not contain solvents and therefore has a longer shelf life.
  • Contains an average of 40-65% additive, but the range can reach 15-80% in extreme cases.
  • A 25 kg bag processes up to one ton of raw material. Thus, the relatively dilute nature of the materbatches allows for greater precision when dosing small quantities.

 

 

Carrier and Dosages

 

The masterbatch carrier must 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 masterbatch carrier is incompatible with the raw material, changes may occur in the properties of the processed material. The processor must specify the characteristics of the raw material. The percentage of use of masterbatches in relation to the raw material is between 1 and 5%. Masterbatches, color and additive(s) or combined.

 

 

Adverse effects

 

  • Adverse effects sometimes occur, such as the masterbatch separating from the raw material in the machine hopper.
  • The liquid masterbatch is added directly to the machine spindle using a peristaltic pump,
  • The use of liquid masterbatches also makes it possible to obtain highly precise dosages and rapid color changes between production runs.

 

 

Transformation processes

 

Masterbatches are compatible with most processes, with the exception of rotational molding, plastisol and other liquid resin systems.

 

 

Color Range | Standard

 

We have a wide range of standard colors to choose from. These versatile colors, which are always in stock, are available immediately. We can therefore deliver samples in small or large quantities at short notice. All standard colors can be used in a number of different industries.

 

 

Color Range | Special Effects

 

Over the years, we have specialized in developing colors for personal care and beauty products. We offer a wide range of special effects colors, such as pearlescent, fluorescent, phosphorescent and others, for various applications as well as blow molding and injection molding. In a sector that requires specific expertise, we cooperate closely with marketing departments to ensure products that appeal to customers.

 

 

Color Range | Custom Colors

 

In addition to our range of standard colors and special effects, we also provide tailor-made solutions. We continually invest in the research and innovation department to keep up with customer specifications, which allows us to explore the world of color concentrates in a variety of applications.

 

 

Color Range | Mono Pigment

 

A single pre-dispersed organic or inorganic colorant in various formats. We can be guided by the customer in the case of a specific pigment, as well as advising the customer.

 

 

Color Range | Specific Color

 

Formulated to customer specifications, working to tight tolerances and using modern technology. The customer can provide the desired color and application requirements and we will match the color.

 

 

Color Range | Special Effect

 

Why not bring a color to life by combining effect pigments in different formats. You can achieve a sparkling shine, a silky sheen or a pearl effect. How about a color gradation? See how the color changes depending on the angle of view!

 

 

Color Range | Reflective heat

 

Keep your product protected from the sun by combining infrared reflective pigments in one of the product formats! Lower average temperatures; less thermal and polymer degradation; Reduced thermal expansion; Cool to the touch. In construction applications, where there is less heat transfer in buildings.

 

 

Color Range | Cable Industry

 

Adpalst masterbatches are developed in accordance with the following standards: RAL, MUNSELL, EIA359, SAE J 1128, NEMA. We can develop any special color upon customer’s request.

 

 

Color Range | Available Cuts

 

  • Astrobatch (2-3mm)

 

A versatile range for both flexible and rigid applications. Used for in-line dosing and for direct addition to the mixer.

 

  • Astromicro V (<1mm)

 

Small uniform granules increase flow, allow easy dosing and ensure excellent dispersion. Applications include low dosage for high production machines, e.g. rotational molding and pipe extrusion.
