ADDITIVE MASTERBATCH

Colloids supply a comprehensive range of Additive Masterbatch products that are used extensively throughout the thermoplastics industry. We have a selection of standard additive masterbatches available from stock. The standard range includes but is not limited to:

  • Antiblock – prevents films sticking together during and after processing
  • Antifog – maintains clarity of food packaging and agricultural films
  • Antimicrobial – suppresses microbial growth on polymer surfaces
  • Antioxidants – inhibits polymer oxidation (colour/polymer degradation, gels and black specks)
  • Antislip – increases coefficient of friction to prevent slip of stacked PE bags
  • Antistatic – prevents dust pick-up and build up of static charge
  • Blowing Agents – lowers density reducing part weight leading to lower costs
  • Degradable – causes standard polyolefins to degrade
  • De-lustre – gloss reduction and value adding polymer extender
  • Denesting – prevents stacked mouldings sticking together during storage
  • Flame Retardants – offers varying degrees of fire resistance
  • Mould Release – prevents parts sticking in the mould
  • Nucleating Agent – improves cycle time and polymer crystallinity, foam nucleator
  • Paper Like – creates paper feel polymer film
  • Process Aids – improves processing by reducing melt fracture leading to increased output
  • Slip Agents – reduces coefficient of friction – often used in conjunction with antiblocks
  • UV Stabiliser/Absorbers – prolongs life of part exposed to UV / packaging contents

We also provide additive masterbatches based on other polymer systems such as ABS, ASA, EVA, PA (Nylon), PBT, PET, PE, PP, PS, SAN and universal carriers.

For bespoke applications where specific functionality is required we can work with customers to develop appropriate solutions.
