Here, we have provided all the requisite details of the Masterbatches Manufacturers. The product is used as solid and liquid additives for the plastic. The product is used for coloring plastic and providing other properties to the plastic. This mixture of pigments and additives are encapsulated during the heating process and cooled after some time and cut into a granular shape. The master batches suppliers and exporters process the product in types of additive masterbatch, black masterbatch, malson, color masterbatch, etc. that feature anti-oxidants, anti-slip, anti-static, flame retardant and ultraviolet light resistance.

Masterbatches are typically the concentrated mixtures of well dispersed
pigments and/or dyes and/or additives that are encapsulated into a
suitable carrier through a specific heating process. Available in solid
as well as in liquid form, masterbatches are widely used for the purpose
of coloring plastics and also for imparting other properties to them.
These are an ideal alternative to buying and using a fully compounded
material ( which is generally more expensive and also provides lesser
leeway to achiever color variability of the product) and also better
than the option of compounding from raw materials on site.
Masterbatches have wide applications in various industries, with a notable one being their usage in coloration and functional property improvement of polyester in the textile industry. These are available in various forms and types, some examples are additive masterbatches, anti-block masterbatches, antistatic masterbatches, PVC masterbatches, white masterbatches etc. Depending on the application, the masterbatches are sometimes used individually or sometimes in combination.
Properties imparted by masterbatches
These are majorly used to modify inherent properties of a plastic, in the process, imparting properties such as,
* Flame retardant
* Anti oxidant
* UV rays resistant
* Corrosion inhibiting
Attributes of masterbatches
* These have a dilute nature as
compared to raw additives, this ensures high accuracy in the process of
dosing small amounts of high priced components
* Solid masterbatches have a compact nature, thus preventing problems with dust common for all fine grained solid additives
* These are very simple to handle and use
* Masterbatches are environment friendly and also aid in energy conservation, as a result reducing the carbon foot print
Apart from some exceptions such as rotational molding and plastisol, these are fit to be used in a majority of processes
Techniques used for adding masterbatches
* Through volumetric
feeder – In this method, the masterbatches are added at the hopper/
throat of injection molding machine and extruder
* Through gravimetric feeder - The process is the same as with volumetric feeders
* Side stream injection – In this process, the masterbatches are melted at
an extruder and afterwards injected by a melt pump to the main stream
