Masterbatches - Mastertint Color

Chrostiki offers a wide range of color masterbatches that covers many applications in the field of plastics and elastomers.

With many decades of experience in color matching, our finely equipped laboratory and our creativity, we offer fast and accurate color matching that meets the requirements and needs of our customers.

The pigments and dyes used are carefully selected to achieve the best combination of required properties and cost.

Our standard Mastertint® color masterbatches range includes:

- KE/KL based on LDPE or LLDPE carrier for film extrusion and injection molding
- KP based on PP carrier for polypropylene extrusion and molding articles
- KS based on PS carrier for polystyrene extrusion and injection molding
- KV based on PVC-P carrier, designed for the coloration of PVC-P cable insulation and sheathing, according to RAL shades
- KT based on Polyester carriers for PET and PBT molding and extrusion
- KU based on a universal carrier that is compatible with almost the entire range of polymers

Colorants in Powder & Microbeads

Dryplast® Powder Colorants

General Information

Blends of color pigments and / or soluble dyes for extrusion and injection molding.
Standard range.
Matchings to RAL , IEC, PANTONE and other international color systems.
Tailor made products on request.

Dryplast® powder colorants are color pigment preparations in powder form. More particularly, they are blends of pigments and additives specially designed for the mass pigmentation of rigid and plasticised PVC extruded or injection molded articles, such as:

- Above ground electrical conduit
- Underground electrical conduit
- Sewage pipes, highway drains
- Water and irrigation pipes
- Profiles
- Corrugated electrical tubing and fittings

Dryplast® powder colorants are added during the production of the PVC compound.
High-speed (Henschel type or turbo) mixers give excellent dispersion quality. Slow horizontal mixers may also give adequate dispersion. Addition of Dryplast colours to a ready PVC compound in powder or pellet form is also possible. Mixing can be carried out on a rotating drum or other low shear device but the customer must test the dispersion quality obtained by such methods.

Dryplast® powder colorants can be produced in any color according to the specific request of each customer.

Product category: Pastes

Paste Colorants

POLYTINT® color pastes are high quality pigment dispersions, produced in three roll mills.

POLYTINT® color pastes are quite stable dispersions, which means that they do not separate or thicken during storage. The viscosity of these pastes (10 – 25 Poise) is designed to ensure easy handling and incorporation, while reducing the tendency to settle on storage. All standard pastes can be poured, pumped or dosed. Paste viscosity can be adjusted depending on customer/application requirements. Usually, small batch hand-mixing operations choose higher viscosity pastes for easier weighing and handling, while when metering pumps are used lower viscosity pumpable pastes are preferred. The tendency for pigments to settle increases the lower the viscosity. Therefore, we recommend stirring the paste before use at the pump.

POLYTINT® color pastes are controlled for:

- Color
- Fineness of grind
- Viscosity

A wide range of single pigment, organic, inorganic or special effect, dispersions is available, including pigments with high light and weather fastness. Our color lab can design colors that match shades from RAL, Pantone or other reference color charts. Optical brightener and UV stabilizer can also be included on request.
