Our products

Product category: Masterbatches

COLOUR MASTERBATCH

Colloids manufacture a comprehensive range of Colour Masterbatch products that are used extensively throughout the thermoplastics industry. We have a wide selection of standard colours available from stock, including a range of colours suitable for outdoor applications with excellent weathering properties. The range includes high opacity colours in addition to tints as well as specialities such as metallic, pearlescent, thermochromic and glow-in-the-dark effects. When required we can provide products to meet the relevant food contact, toy and waste packaging regulations.

For non standard applications we offer a rapid colour matching service creating masterbatches specific to our customers needs. Bespoke colours can be engineered to encompass a whole range of effects and finishes for some of today's most demanding markets. We can also develop and produce coloured products incorporating differing functional properties such as antistatic, UV stability, mould release, antibacterial etc.

Our colour masterbatches are used successfully in the following processes:

- Film and sheet extrusion
- Injection / blow moulding
- Pipe / profile extrusion
- Compounding
