Ampacet’s black, white, color and additive masterbatches meet the diverse appearance and functional demands placed on plastic products.
We provide thousands of black and white masterbatch formulas, including those having high pigment loadings, temperature resistance, UV resistance and electrical conductivity. Our broad palette of color concentrates encompasses all organic and inorganic pigments and those for pearlescent, metallic and other special effects. These are supported by our global color team formed of multiple disciplines working together to create colors and effects that support our customer’s brand initiatives. Ideation from concept to market!
We also bring additives together to optimize how well commodity and specialty resins process and perform. These tailored masterbatches span the additive universe and include antistats, antiblocks, antifogs, antioxidants, foaming agents, flame retardants, fillers, optical brighteners, process aids, purge agents, release agents, scents, slips, UV absorbers and inhibitors, and more.
