Americhem’s dSperse® color masterbatch polymers present bottle converters and other manufacturers of PET and polyolefin containers with a dedicated line of mini beads that offers significant advantages over other product forms. Designed to work with material feeders that have the capability to deliver fractional usage levels, dSperse® acts as a color dispersing agent, allowing the base resin to gain maximum color and even distribution for consistent, repeatable color – lot after lot. The small size and spherical shape of dSperse® color masterbatch beads increases their dispersion and reduces the melting time of the masterbatch, helping to lower material use and energy consumption costs. Depending on the application, dSperse® pigment loads can be as low as 0.05%. In addition to achieving more economical coloring, the masterbatch technology features polyester-based binder systems that provide superior physical properties such as rigidity, flexibility, water resistance and impact resistance.
Our material experts can design and formulate a custom color masterbatch that ensures maximum product performance and greater efficiencies. Click the button below for personalized service from beginning to end.
Our dSperse® color additive technology is offered in the form of mini beads and mini pellets to best fit your production lines. The formulations often dictate the product form, but both types achieve equivalent levels of color dispersion, which translates into brilliant hues and high clarity. With either product shape, you can trust dSperse® will deliver excellent material compatibility, viscosity and particle size consistency for injection blow molding processes.
Whether your molded plastic product requires a translucent or opaque design, dSperse® can be tinted to match virtually any color shade without compromising the integrity of the masterbatch. For packaging that contains light-sensitive products like beer, pharmaceuticals and skincare serums, Americhem offers material solutions that help limit or block UV light transmission. Specific resins, pigments and additives are always evaluated and selected to meet our customer’s end-use application.
Americhem is continually developing color masterbatch technology solutions that bring unique advantages to specialty markets. On the beverage line, you’ll find water, beer and other drinks that utilize dSperse® packaged masterbatch mixes for their bottle packaging. Some of the largest bottle manufacturers in the world have sourced dSperse® for years, owing their lower costs of production to the color masterbatch beads. In the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical space, dSperse® fulfills a range of packaging safety requirements, surpassing other custom color additives from a material, processing and efficiency standpoint.
