Color harmony across different polymers and materials in a car is an important design parameter. Clariant Masterbatches is not only supplying automotive masterbatches for Textiles, but has an intense experience in other Automotive applications as well, such as injection molding and special films. Some automotive manufacturers used this unique know-how to develop design concepts and color standards for entire car projects.
Clariant Masterbatches delivers a wide range of solutions for polyolefin, polyester and nylon (polyamide) fibers as well as newer polymers such as PLA and PTT.
Understanding the high-performance demands that today’s non-woven products must meet, and the sophistication of modern spinning processes and post-treatment operations, Clariant is constantly developing new and cost-effective solutions, including both standard products and specialty masterbatches tailored to unique customer requirements.
Our standard product line extends from single-pigment concentrates to customized color masterbatches. Performance solutions – which add features like durability, UV stability, flame retardancy, Sanitized® antibacterial and many other properties – can be delivered as additive masterbatches or together with color in a convenient “combibatch” form.
Lives often depend on the performance of technical textiles like mono- and multifilament cords and cordage. Clariant understands and operates to the highest standards for color and critical additives masterbatches. Our strong expertise takes in the spinning performance of your production line for the upmost fulfillment of the physical properties of the produced multifilaments.
Our expert solutions ensure high resistance and tenacity in a wide range of polymers from polyolefins to polyesters up to polyamide.
The artificial turf market segment keeps on undergoing rapid technological development and so are the products of Clariant Masterbatches. Our knowledge and experience in UV stabilization of polyolefins, development of color/additive “combibatch”, independent R&D and raw-material sourcing, our close cooperation with the major monofilament producers, accredited laboratories, and our worldwide presence, are just some of the advantages we offer to our customers.
The long lifespan required for the yarns used in artificial turf is achieved by combining suitable stabilizers and compatible pigments to achieve fiber resilience, lightfastness, weather resistance and antimicrobial properties.
Our masterbatches are free of heavy metals and we have in-depth experience in regulatory compliance worldwide.
