A masterbatch is a solid additive used in the plastic industry to give specific properties to the plastic product such as colour, texture, durability and so forth. It usually comes in small granules which is a concentrated mix of pigments and additives achieved and through heat treatment used in the production of plastic. Some of the properties mentioned other than colour are antistatic, fire retardant, anti-fog, antioxidant, UV stabilizer etc.Masterbatches are used not only to change the colour of the product but also to affect the physical and mechanical features of the product. These polymers develop higher resistance to heat, chemicals, and other external factors during production and use. With increased dependency on plastic products, it becomes imperative to ensure the components used to manufacture them are top-of-the-line and can deliver results even in the harshest working conditions. In this blog, we will be focusing on UV Masterbatches which are one of the most important additives for plastic products that are exposed to the sun constantly. A few of the benefits of UV Masterbatch are listed below:
- UV Masterbatch improves the stabilization of the product. Long exposure to the sun usually means the structure of the plastic will degrade as a result of chemical reactions. The application of UV Masterbatch will minimize this process and keep the structure stable for an extended period.
- It also prevents the colour from fading despite being constantly exposed to the sunlight. This ensures the structure looks and stays as it was from Day 1.
- UV Masterbatch is chemical resistant and provides added strength to the structure when exposed to chemicals and other components that can degrade the overall integrity of the plastic. Common plastic products tend to disintegrate if they come in contact with chemicals almost instantly in many cases. Using this additive will increase the resistance of the product and make it hardy.
- It absorbs harmful UV radiation which in turn will protect whatever the plastic structure is housing and keep it safe for a longer duration.
