UV stabilizers and absorbers can be added to a custom color to absorb/block ultraviolet light or stabilize the base resin. The exact blend and use rate will be determined after gathering critical information about part performance needs.
ACUVI is a hindered amine light stabilizer masterbatch suitable for polyolefins.
AO and stabilizing additives that offer process stabilization and can lengthen the life of certain polymers can be added to a custom color.
Typical additive packages include combinations of anti-oxidants, hindered amine light stabilizers, and UV absorbers. We tailor the combination to suit the application.
The prevention of static build up and sparking in the processing and usage of final parts can be critical to part performance and sometimes safety. Antistatic agents can be added to a custom color to aid in static reduction.
ACAS is a temporary antistatic masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.
Especially critical in film production, anti-blocking additives added to a custom color can aid in downstream part processing and/or material handling.
Slip additives added to a custom color can aid in downstream part processing and/or material handling of bag applications.
ACSLIP is a slip masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.
Nucleating agents added to a custom color can reduce cycle time in some polymers.
ACNUC is a high performance nucleator masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.
Only offered as a stand-alone additive masterbatch, foaming agents can aid in part weight reduction in some polymers.
ACBA10, ACBA20 and ACBA40 are blowing or chemical foaming agent masterbatches with varying quantities of active ingredient. They are suitable for use in polyolefins and styrenics.
ACBA20-450EX is our latest blowing or chemical foaming agent masterbatch suitable for use in polyamide.
Additives that aid mold release can be added to a custom color and can improve cycle time and quality of the final part.
ACMR is a mold release masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.
Laser marking for identification purposes can sometimes be a challenge. Laser marking additives can be added to a custom color to enhance the mark appearance.
Protecting the look of a finished part is critical in transport as well in end use. Scratch and mar inhibitor can be added to a custom color formula to reduce the occurrence surface defects.
ACSM is a scratch and mar inhibitor masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.
Depending on the polymer and the application, processing aids can be added to a custom color to aid in optimization of processing or to reduce processing difficulty. An example is a flow modifier/processing aid suitable for filled and unfilled polyamide.
Depending on the polymer and the application, impact modifiers can be added to a custom color to improve impact strength of the polymer and/or part.
ACIM is an impact modifying masterbatch suitable for use in polyamide and polyoxymethylene (polyacetal).
Liqui-Kolor masterbatches, our newest delivery form, are available in Europe. Many of the additives listed can be delivered in a liquid carrier system.
