There are many types of masterbatches. Each has its own distinct properties. Some additive masterbatches improve the end plastic product. Others may reduce weight and resin consumption. Here are a few examples of additive masterbatches. We’ll also talk about how to combine several types of masterbatches. Listed below are three types of additive masterbatches:
MESGO Iride Colors
MESGO Iride Colors provides a full range of high quality thermoplastic compound products for a wide range of applications. The company produces a variety of black and white masterbatches for use in a wide variety of industries, including the automotive and transportation industries. These products are designed to meet customers’ specific requirements and are backed by the company’s long history of quality and innovation.
In 2013, MESGO acquired Iride Colors Srl, a company that had been active since 1989. Iride Colors specialized in colorants and additives for silicone and thermoplastic compounds. In 2014, the company acquired two more companies, Guzzetti Master and 3AMCom, which are both active in pigment masterbatches and HFFR compounding. As a result, the company is now able to offer a comprehensive line of silicone and rubber additives to customers.
In the present study, the curing agent Masterbatches MDI were prepared as described in Example 5. The adduct was dispersed into 300 grams of DER 332 epoxy, while 250 grams were transferred to a reactor with a heatable agitation device. This mixture was heated to 60C, and agitation was continued throughout. A sample of the cured product was prepared as described in Example 5. The properties of the cured product are presented in Table 5.
Black masterbatches are high concentrations of carbon black. In addition to the carbon black, the mixtures may contain other black pigments that depend on the resin system and application. The Masterbatches allow plastic processors to utilize dry powders for easy incorporation into extrusion processes. Black masterbatches impart color, UV resistance, and electrical conductivity. MDI produces a wide range of black masterbatches for a variety of applications.
Modern Dispersions, Inc., is a masterbatch manufacturer and thermoplastics compounder. The company’s ECOBlack product is made from recycled carbon black and polyethylene resin from a stream. This new product sets new standards in quality while delivering cost savings. The company will introduce this new black masterbatch at the K 2016 exhibition in Düsseldorf. Further, the company is introducing several specialty masterbatches to the industry.
The properties of cured products vary with the amount of poly-MDI added. The viscosity decreases with increasing poly-MDI, and the percent elongation increases. The water absorption of the cured product remains unaffected. However, the tensile strength increases with poly-MDI. If this is the case, the cured product will be stronger. For the application of this compound, an increased amount of the poly-MDI is desirable.
The Americhem Corporation is a globally recognized manufacturer of custom color masterbatches, functional additives, and engineered compounds. In June 2018, Americhem acquired Prescient Color Ltd., a leading Indian manufacturer of high-end masterbatches for synthetic fibers. The acquisition will strengthen Americhem’s position in the synthetic fiber market and extend its geographic reach to a rapidly growing region. The company also recently acquired Controlled Polymers, a manufacturer of custom-formulated compound solutions for large OEMs in the global healthcare market.
Americhem also manufactures additives and color masterbatches, specifically for the packaging industry. These products are tailored to specific customer requirements and can include single pigment dispersions that can be used by themselves or combined to create custom colors. They can also contain antioxidants, UV stabilizers, flame retardants, anti-static agents, optical brighteners, anti-microbials, and nucleating agents. The Americhem masterbatches can be used at a concentration of 0.05% or less.
The Americhem plant is home to a color design center that enables customers to view and match the color of a thousand card wrapped products in various lighting conditions. Its masterbatches have superior dispersion properties that reduce the buildup of die faces and extend pack life. Americhem’s masterbatches improve spin performance and yields. Americhem offers a “Match While You Wait” service that allows customers to match multiple colors in a day.
The report offers detailed product and market analysis for the Americhem masterbatches industry. It provides historical and future revenue statistics for global and regional markets from 2016 to 2028. The report also evaluates various drivers, restraints, and opportunities affecting the masterbatches market. Porter’s Five Forces model helps identify the most attractive market segments for the Americhem masterbatches industry. They also provide an analysis of key players in the industry.
Americhem is introducing a new line of masterbatches called nVision for the European market at Techtextil 2013. These masterbatches deliver industry-leading color and uniformity in a single pellet. As nonwoven fabric manufacturers increasingly seek efficiencies, consistency, and higher yields, nVision will be an ideal solution. For these reasons, Americhem will be exhibiting at Techtextil 2013 in Frankfurt, Germany, June 11-13.
