  • Plastics Consultancy Network - Mixing and compounding masterbatches
    A master batch is a product in which pigments and/or other additives are already optimally dispersed in a carrier material, that is compatible with the main plastic in which it will be let down and is supplied in either a granule or prill form. The carrier material generally used, is likely to be
  • Compounding
    fillers. A wide variety of materials may be created through compounding including plastics, rubber, elastomers, cleaning agents, lubricants, greases, masterbatch colorants (pigments, dyes), additive masterbatches, organic chemicals, chemical additives, metal working fluids, oils, oil and fuel additives
  • Mastering color
    Colorants change a plastic part's color but may also modify polymer chemistry, physical properties, manufacturability, and cost. Edited by Jean M. Hoffman A new Splash masterbatch formulation imitates marble, wood, tortoise shell, and other materials in base resins such as polystyrene
  • Liquid Concentrate Dispersions
    Liquid concentrate dispersions are masterbatches of organic or waterborne pigments that contain solvents or diluents. These dispersions can be free flowing pourable liquids or high-viscosity pastes depending on the composition. Depending on the specified end use, they may contain resins, additives
  • Glass Bubbles Reduce Weight of TPO Parts (.pdf)
    Resin compounder Noble Polymers of Grand Rapids, Michigan, a subsidiary of Cascade Engineering, has developed a low-density polyolefin resin formulation that reduces the weight of TPO plastic parts by up to twenty percent. This masterbatch bulk resin additive incorporates hollow glass bubbles from
  • Solid Concentrate Dispersions
    Solid concentrate dispersions are masterbatches of pigment supplied in dry form either as dust free pellets, granules or flakes. They do not contain solvents but may contain additives or plasticizers. The two common forms that typify this category are chips and Predisol pigment preparations
  • Long-glass-fiber PP hits the road
    under heat and pressure and pelletized to lengths of 13 and 25 mm. The heat-stabilized, 75% LGF PP masterbatch, Verton MTX was diluted to a final glass loading of 30%. The blend competes well in regard to flexural modulus and falling dart impact against a fully compounded, heat stabilized 30% LGF PP
  • Case History: New Feeders Boost EPS Production and Efficiency at Bandex
    Bandex S.A., located in San Luis, Argentina, manufactures disposable containers and plates from expanded polystyrene (EPS). The production line extrudes and thermoforms virgin polystyrene, recycled polystyrene, talc, and masterbatch color pellets. Bandex is the market leader in EPS packaging
  • Materials Engineering: Why You Shouldn't Sit on Your Keyboard
    4100 also eliminates common problems including discoloration and opacity seen with silver-based additives, Wagner adds. Biosafe sends the HM 4100 antimicrobial in crystalline powder or masterbatch form to RTP Co., Winona, Minn., for compounding. RTP can also render fillers including hollow
