Black masterbatch is a mixture of carbon black with a suitable polymer base. Depending on the final application, the polymer base can vary: polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, EVA, and ABS with different grades.
Black masterbatches have two general applications, separately or simultaneously:
1) As a paint for polymer bases
2) As a protection layer against ultraviolet (UV) radiations
Given a specific use-case, Padena Polymer can create and optimize the Black masterbatch, adjusting the black carbon and polymer base to the client’s required specifications.
Black masterbatch is typically used in industries such as film, pipe and fittings (based on ISO 18553), home appliances, injection molding, blow molding plastic container industries.
