Types of Masterbatches used in the Plastic Industry

Masterbatches are not new to the plastic industry. As traditional plastics take years to degrade, masterbatches are used to enhance the degradation of plastic products while providing enticing color the product. While there are many masterbatches used in the plastic industry, here are the most prominent ones.

White Masterbatches

White masterbatches are used to provide transparency and brightness in the final synthetic product and can be composed of 75% titanium dioxide. The titanium dioxide has a right average particle size, 0.19 to 0.22 micron, high refractive index, and opaqueness. The white masterbatches can be further categorized based on percentages of titanium dioxide in the composition.

Black Masterbatches

Black masterbatches, used as black pigments in various plastic applications, has a 50 % black component in its composition. It is used for its UV protection, jets, conductivity, etc. The preference for this masterbatch comes from its high surface areas, which increase with the decrease in particle sizes. Black masterbatches are used in injection molding, blow molding, monofilaments and HDPE pipes.

Colored Masterbatches

Color masterbatches manufacturers in India use masterbatches to color to the final plastic products along with lightfastness and thermal stability. Color masterbatches are available in 200 color shades. So clients can choose any color for their final product. Color masterbatches are used in blow molding of bottles, injection molding household items and insulation of cables.

Additive Masterbatches

Additive masterbatches come in different varieties, and each type has some select properties to improve the end plastic product. It also can be used to reduce the weight and resin consumption of the product.
