A: Providing your volume requirements are sufficient, we will do it while you wait!
A: A polymer specific masterbatch will introduce a minimum amount of ‘foreign’ material into your polymer for sensitive applications. Being a ‘weaker’ colouring agent it often improves colour dispersion.
A: Yes. A combination masterbatch may provide colourant, UV stabilisation and antistat properties for example.
A: Nobody guarantees that colours will never fade! However providing that you tell us that good light fastness is a requirement we will use top quality pigments and dyes to provide the colour with excellent light fast properties.
A: If we cannot achieve the right colour within our laboratories, then we may come to you, matching the job at your site and on your machine!
A: If you plan to colour less than 1 tonne of material and you are using extrusion, injection or blow moulding, then it may be more economical to use dry colorant. It is particularly efficient for transparent effects. Masterbatches offer clean handling and the ability to be metered at the machine.
A: This is a light mineral oil which is distributed on the surface of the polymer granules prior to adding the colour. It makes the dry colouring process cleaner.
A: We have a minimum order of 1kg for stock Masterbatch colours, single unit packs for Dry Colour and 5kgs for polymer specific Masterbatch. The minimum for custom Universal Masterbatch is 5kg.
