Additive Offerings

Uniform Color Company can provide functional additives as part of a custom color formulation or as a stand-alone additive masterbatch. In addition to providing the additive you need, UCC can also provide the necessary technical assistance.

Ultraviolet Stabilizers & Absorbers

Custom Color Option
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.

Additive Masterbatch Products
ACUVI is a hindered amine light stabilizer masterbatch suitable for polyolefins.

Anti-Oxidants & Stabilizers

Custom Color Option
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.

Anti-Static Agents

Custom Color Option
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.

Additive Masterbatch Products
ACAS is a temporary antistatic masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.

Anti-Blocking Agents

Custom Color Option
Especially critical in film production, anti-blocking additives added to a custom color can aid in downstream part processing and/or material handling.

Slip Agents

Custom Color Option
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

Custom Color Option
Nucleating agents added to a custom color can reduce cycle time in some polymers.

Additive Masterbatch Products
ACNUC is a high performance nucleator masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.

 

Purge Products

Liqui-PurgeTM and UCCleanTM purge products are our newest solutions for faster color changes and reduced waste. We have several types that are optimized for your process and polymer system.

For more information, please see our Purge Products page.

Blowing/Chemical Foaming Agents

Custom Color Option
Only offered as a stand-alone additive masterbatch, foaming agents can aid in part weight reduction in some polymers.

Additive Masterbatch Products
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.

Mold Release Agents

Custom Color Option
Additives that aid mold release can be added to a custom color and can improve cycle time and quality of the final part.

Additive Masterbatch Products
ACMR is a mold release masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.

Laser Marking Agents

Custom Color Option
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.

Scratch & Mar Inhibitors

Custom Color Option
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.

Additive Masterbatch Products
ACSM is a scratch and mar inhibitor masterbatch suitable for use in polyolefins.

Processing Aids

Custom Color Option
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.

Impact Modifiers

Custom Color Option
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.

Additive Masterbatch Products
ACIM is an impact modifying masterbatch suitable for use in polyamide and polyoxymethylene (polyacetal).

Liqui-Kolor® Masterbatches

Liqui-Kolor masterbatch is are our newest delivery form. Many of the additives listed can be delivered in a liquid carrier system.
