Easy-to-use liquid masterbatches speed color changes and can now be made with proprietary carrier to limit crew slippage in extrusion blow molding. To help meet environmental goals, Clariant can show you how to use less fossil-derived materials and increase use of recycled, renewable or compostable materials – all without compromising appearance or the physical/mechanical properties of the package.
Cost and performance are critical elements in industrial packaging and Clariant Masterbatches has solutions for these issues and more. Color concentrates in solid or liquid form give you the lowest cost of coloration . Performance-enhancing additives are available alone or compounded together with color in a convenient "combibatches", and chemical foaming agents help reduce plastic resin and package weight without compromising strength or appearance. Special formulations are available to meet customer requirements for chemical resistance.
