Products for Masterbatch and Compounding Industry
We are experts in creating solutions for our customer’s needs. For the masterbatch and compounding industry Clariant offers a broad range of colorants and optical brighteners. Our main purpose in this area is to serve manufactures of color concentrates and ready-to-process compounds. We offer products in various forms such as pastes, powder blends or granulated systems based on polyolefins, plasticized PVC, styrenics, engineering resins, among others.
We offer an extremely wide range of colorants with tailor made solutions for masterbatches and compounds covering different types of products:
Colorants and optical brighteners for Masterbatch Producers and Compounders
|Hostasol®||Fluorescent colorants suitable for PS, SAN, ABS, PC, PMMA and U-PVC. Some possibilities exist for the coloration of various grades of polyamide and in thermoplastic polyester applications.|
|Polysynthren®||Polymer-soluble colorants for the coloration of thermoplastic polyester (except Polysynthren Yellow RL). They provide intensely colored, brilliant shades with outstanding fastness properties. The main applications are PET fibers, filaments and bottles. Polysynthrens are also applied in other engineering polymers, however pre-testing is required.|
Polysynthren Yellow RL is a colorant that has been developed for the coloration of polyamide, showing excellent fastness properties.
|Solvaperm®||High-quality polymer soluble dyes that are developed for coloring polystyrene (PS) and its derivatives. They are also suitable for a wide range of other polymers including thermoplastic polyesters, polycarbonates and polyamides. |
|Graphtol®||These pigment powders are a range of classic and novel organic chemistries specifically selected for plastics applications. Graphtol® pigments present a wide range of shades and technical properties which offer the user economical coloring solutions.|
|PV Fast||High performance organic pigments with excellent heat resistance, high light fastness and very good bleeding fastness properties. These pigments are designed for their ease of dispersion in thermoplastic materials and are specifically suitable for fiber, thin wall and difficult technical applications.|
|Hostaprint®||Pigment preparations based on 50% single pigment in a vinyl chloride/acetate co-polymer providing excellent dispersion in a free-flowing, low dusting form. They are recommended for the mass coloration of plasticized (P) and unplasticized (U) PVC.|
|Hostasin®||Organic pigment dispersions based on an oxidation resistant polyolefin copolymer carrier that is fully compatible with natural rubber and common synthetic rubbers. They are in a dust-free, free-flowing form and the optimized pigment dispersion allowing maximum color development and reproducibility.|
|Hostalux®||Optical brighteners function by absorbing light in the UV-A range and re-emitting light in the visible blue range. In this way they increase reflection and impart various shades. Optical brighteners function in all colored plastics, however they are more effective in lighter shades.|
These products are used for the coloring of all types of plastics including polyolefins, PVC, rubber, styrenics, engineering polymers, etc.
Many years of experience in coloring plastics make Clariant to a qualified and innovative worldwide partner in the search for new coloring solutions.
