Engineering Polymers

Nylon Polyamide

Alongside our universal and commodity polymer based masterbatches, we can produce masterbatch using a range of high specification pigments based on a wide range of engineering polymers, for example :-

  • Polyamide / Nylon
  • POM / Acetal
  • PET
  • Polycarbonate

Polystyrene

Polystyrene

Used extensively by manufacturing industries to produce a wide range of consumer goods.

The largest markets for Polystyrene include packaging such as food and dairy containers, closures, lids, produce baskets, vending cups and fast food containers and toys.

The durable goods sector includes domestic appliances, household goods and furniture. It is also widely used in foam packaging and insulation materials.

We provide a wide range of masterbatches for colouring polystyrene, all tailor made to your specific requirements.

Polypropylene

Polypropylene

Polypropylene is available in three general forms, Homopolymer, Copolymer and Block Copolymer. It is a tough and flexible polymer, especially when copolymerised with ethylene and has excellent chemical resistance and mechanical properties. It is a translucent material and has gradually replaced polyethylene's for many purposes.

Injection moulding is the largest market for PP but it can also be made into fibres, film, sheet and be extruded into pipe and conduit.

Some of the many uses include ropes, bottles, caps, living hinges, food containers, cable insulation, loudspeaker cones and fibres for use in both clothing and carpets. Polypropylene and its blends have become the plastic of choice in the car industry.

We have formulated Polypropylene masterbatches for use in many applications, including automotive, caps and closures and fibre production to name a few.

UV exposure can cause degradation so UV additives are commonly used. These can be incorporated into masterbatch to give a one step solution to your processing needs.

Universal

Universal Masterbatch

Our universal carrier system is suitable for a wide range of polymers including Polystyrene, Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Nylon, Flex PVC, ABS and Acetal to name a few.

Universal masterbatches are a cost effective solution to control stock levels. One masterbatch can be used to colour several polymers.

Universal masterbatches generally have a viscosity which is lower than the polymer being coloured, thereby melting and dispersing more easily than a polymer specific. Specifying the intended polymers and applicationĀ at the matching stage also ensures pigment compatibility in your moulding's and final product.
