A color masterbatch is a specific blend of pigments, which are injected and mixed into raw polymers during the plastic product manufacturing process. Just as their name suggests, the purpose of color masterbatches is to provide polymers with specific colors, tones and hues.
The color masterbatch, which is also known as color concentrate, can basically be engineered to deliver any specific color in the color spectrum. Once the pigments are selected, they are blended together and fused via a heating process in a carrier resin. After the masterbatch cools off, it is divided into small granular pellets, packaged and send to the plastic manufacturer.
After the plastic manufacturing company receives the color masterbatch, it adds it to raw polymer by using. Ultimately, this process is what gives the plastic product its unique color.
Tosaf specializes in creating color masterbatches that not only cater to your color needs, but can also enhance your product’s functionality.
For example, if a plastic product manufacturer wants his product to showcase a specific color, but also exhibit flame retardant qualities, then a unique blend of pigments and additives is created for that exact purpose. This can be done with a wide range of functionalities, including anti-static, anti-slip and anti-fog. Another example is color masterbatches that include UV light stabilization qualities.
In this respect, it is also important to note that all of our color masterbatches adhere to specific regulation requirements. When delivering a color masterbatch to your factory, or creating a new color masterbatch for your unique needs, our teams take your compliance needs into full consideration.
The answer is yes. The alternative is purchasing raw polymer that is already colored, and that is much more expensive. Uncolored polymer costs much less, and it can be kept in stock for use with different kinds of masterbatch. In the end, using color masterbatches is not only more cost-effective, but also enhances production flexibility. This is one of the reasons that the color masterbatch market is thriving, and has room for an abundance of color masterbatch suppliers.
We can’t talk about the concept of color masterbatch without mentioning black masterbatch and white masterbatch. These are both unique and very common color masterbatches that infuse very high functionality levels.
White masterbatch is engineered by white masterbatch suppliers across many industries to create plastic products with coating and laminations. Black masterbatch can be designed for a wide range of color depth and crystallization, and is intended for black-colored products that feature many kinds of functions. It is a very popular masterbatch.
The list is long, so hold on. Our color masterbatches are used by many market sectors, including the electronic, sport & leisure, automotive, agriculture, building & construction, packaging and textile industries.
Here are a few examples. In the electronics industry, color masterbatches are used to color wires, lighting fixtures and electrical components. In the automotive industry, a manufacturer can use a color masterbatch to color specific interior and exterior car components. In packaging, color masterbatches are used to color caps and closures. And in home and leisure department, color masterbatches help many products look great, from furniture to toys.
