Compounding; the benefits

Where customers using masterbatch have to dose and distribute colour accurately throughout production, those using our compounded materials move ownership of this process to us. This is particularly beneficial for highly colour critical applications or where challenges in distributing colour with masterbatch are encountered during production. As plastic compounds contain the complete material required for moulding, they also provide a practical solution for moulders who are not blessed with state-of-the-art dosing equipment.

We’ve worked with a number of customers to deliver custom compounds in response to specific requirements. Our Special Project Team review any niche enquiries and work with our technicians to explore solutions. We continue to look into developing new additive compounds and masterbatches including blowing agents, desiccants and anti-blocks. Our brand new laboratory and expanded technical team have improved our R&D capacity – perfect for efficient development and testing of bespoke materials.

Our stocked masterbatch range offers 122 colours and the flexibility of a universal carrier system – if you need a compound quickly, we can compound any of these colours in practically any material you wish. Please call our friendly team for more information on compatibility and pricing. We can also provide a toll compounding service to process customer-supplied materials, as well as offering call-off and consignment services.

As with all our products, our compounds are manufactured under tight quality control measures. This guarantees homogeneously blended materials which our customers are benefitting from in increasing volumes.

Can I combine stand-alone effects with my existing colours?

Stand-alone effects can be supplied and combined with your existing colours, but this might not achieve the optimum result. Not all colours and effects are compatible. If you advise our team of your requirements we can advise on a case-by-case basis. Often it’s best for us to formulate a colour and effect masterbatch for you, as opposed to you dosing effects into your existing masterbatches.
