Different Types Of Masterbatches Used In The Industries

Posted by sungbocoltds on September 26th, 2013

There are different types of Masterbatches, some of them are listed below with their industrial usages;

1) White Masterbatch

White masterbatch is prominently used in plastic industry. White masterbatches provides whiteness, brightness and opacity to the final product. White masterbatches are highly dispersible and have high opacity strength with the minimum level of uses. These can be used in extrusion, mouldings and cast films. Masterbatches are manufactured using approximately 75% titanium dioxide content in them.

Uses: In plastic industry

2) Black Masterbatch

Black Masterbatch is made with carbon black pigment. Here too several grades of carbon are available for the type of application for which the Black Masterbatch is prepared. Maximum loading possible of carbon in a PE carrier is 50%. For engineering plastics it is difficult to load beyond 30%.

Uses: Black Masterbatches is widely used in the micro-plastic film, leakage proof film, milk film, water-supply pipe, cable sheath etc and other plastic products.

3) Colour Masterbatch

Color Masterbatches (Color Masterbatch) is a new type of polymer materials dedicated colorants, pigments, also known as preparation of materials (Pigment Preparation).

It consists of pigments or dyes, and additives vector composed of three basic elements, is the extraordinary amount of pigment or dye evenly attached to the resin contained in the aggregate have been, can be said to concentrate pigment (Pigment Concentration), so shading power than his own pigments.

Color Masterbatches is a kind of simple, said the extraordinary amount of pigment or dye evenly attached to the resin contained in the aggregates obtained.

Uses: Coloured masterbatches have application in varied industrial applications including manufacturing of mono/multi layer film, Woven Sacks, injection moulding, roto moulding, blow moulding, HDPE pipe, wires and cables etc.

4) Additive Masterbatches

Additive Masterbatches can be of several types namely-

1.Slip Masterbatches

2.Anti-block Masterbatches

3.Polymer Processing Aid Masterbatches

4.Anti-static Masterbatches

5.UV Stabiliser Masterbatches including Green House Film Masterbatches

6.Nucleating & Clarifying Agent Masterbatches

7.Anti-Warp Masterbatches

8.Chemical Foaming Agent Masterbatches (Exothermic & Endothermic)

9.Anti-sink Masterbatches for Sink mark removal

10.Antimicrobial Masterbatches

11.Foam Nucleators for Expanded Polystyrene and Expanded Polyethylene

12.Anti-fogging Masterbatches

13.Heat stabilizers

14.Flame Retardant packages

15.Stiffening Agents


17.Optical brighteners


19.Chain Extenders

20.Solar Heat Reflection

21.Infrared Masterbatches

5) Filler Masterbatch

Filler Masterbatches are usually a combination of Talc / CaCO3 and PE resin (LLDPE or LDPE). These can also be made in PP resin. Filler masterbatches provide cost reduction and also depending on the design of the type of filler Masterbatch, offer better properties such as stiffness, anti-fibrillation, etc.

Masterbatches come in many varieties. Sungbo is the leading manufacturer of calcium carbonate filler masterbatch in South Korea. The masterbatch solutions provided by the company help you to create cost-effective packaging, consumer products and industrial goods, as well as enable to make injection, extrusion and other processes more efficient.
