Helping to create a world of colour within today's thermoplastics industry forms just one part of the strategic focus of Colloids. As an innovative and progressive manufacturer of speciality and high quality colour masterbatch,
Colloids is committed to delivering technically superior products to a truly global customer base.
Equally important to Colloids' colourful vision of the future is the provision of unprecedented levels of technical and customer support. Only by optimising the interface between itself and its customers is Colloids capable of delivering value added masterbatch solutions.
Colloids - the makers of masterbatch.
Colloids manufacture a comprehensive range of Black Masterbatch products that are used extensively throughout the plastics industry.
Our product ranges are particularly suitable where special attributes are required. UV stability, resistance to high temperatures and friction reduction qualities are just some of the properties demanded in our customers' end products. When required we can provide products to meet the relevant international food contact, toy and waste packaging regulations.
Colloids manufacture a comprehensive range of Colour Masterbatch products that are used extensively throughout the thermoplastics industry. We have a wide selection of standard colours available from stock, including a range of colours suitable for outdoor applications with excellent weathering properties. The range includes high opacity colours in addition to tints as well as specialities such as metallic, pearlescent, thermochromic and glow-in-the-dark effects. When required we can provide products to meet the relevant food contact, toy and waste packaging regulations.
For non standard applications we offer a rapid colour matching service creating masterbatches specific to our customers needs. Bespoke colours can be engineered to encompass a whole range of effects and finishes for some of today's most demanding markets. We can also develop and produce coloured products incorporating differing functional properties such as antistatic, UV stability, mould release, antibacterial etc.
Colloids manufacture a comprehensive range of White Masterbatch products that are used extensively throughout the thermoplastics industry. We have a selection of polyethylene and universal based standard whites available from stock. We have a wide range of products available including highly loaded titanium dioxide grades for maximum opacity. All our standard white masterbatches meet international food contact, toy and waste packaging regulations.
We provide white masterbatches based on polymer systems such as ABS, ASA, EVA, PA (Nylon), PBT, PET, PE, PP, PS, SAN and universal carrier
Colloids supply a comprehensive range of Additive Masterbatch products that are used extensively throughout the thermoplastics industry. We have a selection of standard additive masterbatches available from stock. The standard range includes but is not limited to:
Antiblock - prevents films sticking together during and after processing
Antifog - maintains clarity of food packaging and agricultural films
Antimicrobial - suppresses microbial growth on polymer surfaces
Antioxidants - inhibits polymer oxidation (colour/polymer degradation, gels and black specks)
Antislip - increases coefficient of friction to prevent slip of stacked PE bags
Antistatic - prevents dust pick-up and build up of static charge
Blowing Agents - lowers density reducing part weight leading to lower costs
Degradable - causes standard polyolefins to degrade
De-lustre - gloss reduction and value adding polymer extender
Denesting - prevents stacked mouldings sticking together during storage
Flame Retardants - offers varying degrees of fire resistance
Mould Release - prevents parts sticking in the mould
Nucleating Agent - improves cycle time and polymer crystallinity, foam nucleator
Paper Like - creates paper feel polymer film
Process Aids - improves processing by reducing melt fracture leading to increased output
Slip Agents - reduces coefficient of friction - often used in conjunction with antiblocks
UV Stabiliser/Absorbers - prolongs life of part exposed to UV/packaging contents
For non standard applications Colloids can offer a rapid colour matching and formulation development service creating masterbatches specific to our customers needs.
Bespoke colours, blacks and whites can be engineered to encompass a whole range of effects and finishes for some of today's most innovative applications.
We can also develop and produce coloured and natural products incorporating differing functional properties such as antistatic, UV stability, mould release, antibacterial etc
In the highly competitive and fast-moving consumer goods arena with ever increasing regulatory, cost and processing pressures we can help our customers meet constantly evolving challenges. Our creative team work with designers and engineers to produce new and exciting effects to help influence consumer buying behaviour.
Colloids offer a stock range of colours and special effects as well as a bespoke matching service for unique applications. To give designers a competitive edge in a market where brand differentiation and recognition are vital Colloids can offer exclusivity on the effect produced.
When required, products can be designed to comply with food contact and other regulatory requirements.
