Specialty Compounding NY

We use several methods of delivering color that is used to mold plastic parts. The two most popular options include:

Masterbatches or Concentrates

This is the most common method of color compounding that molders use. Masterbatch contains concentrated pigments that are dispersed into polymer carrier resins. Masterbatch is let down into natural resin during the molding phase. It is fed into a press at predefined ratios, which allows molders to achieve their desired color. Masterbatch is known to be the most economical way to color plastic. It is also popular because it can be used in small volumes.

Colored Specialty Compounding

Without a doubt, color enhances the value of a product. Shoppers want products that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. With specialty compounding, plastic is engineered to meet demanding physical requirements. This manufacturing method is ideal when you need to enhance the characteristics of plastic. For instance, you will want to consider adding UV protection for plastic that is frequently used outdoors. Other commonly used characteristics include:

  • Glow-in-the-dark
  • Anti-microbial
  • Anti-static
  • Flame retardants
  • Thermal characteristics
