Masterbatches remain an easy and economical method for adjusting the properties of polymer resins during the manufacturing process. Traditional masterbatches are made by adding a pigment or performance altering additive or mix of additives and/or pigments in a high concentration to a carrier resin. This masterbatch resin can be added to base resins much easier, faster and more controlled than separate additives or pigments. FM Plastics has been producing a wide variety of masterbatches for decades. We have assisted dozens of plastic processors and compounders with designing and locally producing suitable masterbatches and technical compounds. We produce solid masterbatches with all industrial and technical polymers and some high-performance polymers as carriers.
Since 2014 FM Plastics produces liquid colour and additive masterbatches both in Germany and the Netherlands. Liquid masterbatches allow for a much better distribution of the pigment throughout the resin, their processing requires less energy, allows for faster production run changes and are far easier to clean. The liquid masterbatch is based on a universal carrier that removes the need for different masterbatch stocks based on various carriers reducing the need for stock financing and warehousing. Due to the better dispersion considerably less high valuable pigments and or additives are needed reducing overall costs.
FM Plastics has developed a single liquid additive blended package and processing method that is a extremely cost, time and energy effective method of upgrading and homogenizing the optical and mechanical properties of very large quantities of heterogeneous less than prime or offgrade polyethylene. In the future we hope to offer a similar solution for PVC.
