Additive Masterbatches

Pigment and Additive Masterbatches have a number of talents.
Additive Masterbatches can support a better processing, they can improve the features of your wire and cable compound and they can enhance the quality of your final product. Pigment concentrates change cable compounds into any target colour. 

Our Pigment and Additive Masterbatches are designed to meet the demanding requirements of the wire and cable industry like CEI, EN, UL, ISO, DIN, BS and other.
In addition, our Pigment Masterbatches are designed to help cable manufacturers to identify conductors by colours according to the various national and international harmonized regulations.

Additive masterbatches can also improve various features of compounds like thermal stability, flame resistance and enhance productivity.

Application Areas

Our pigment concentrates are designed to allow the highest yield with the lowest dosage, enabling cost-effective and competitive cable production. Pigments and carriers selection is done to provide thermal stability and homogeneous dispersion, respectively.

This is particularly true with pigment concentrates designed to color HFFR compounds. The design of the masterbatch is done to minimize the effect on flame resistance of the compound. Since many different HFFR technologies are possible, our staff can precisely match any color and customize the pigment masterbatch directly to your HFFR formulation.

HEXPOL silicone additives for W&C are designed to improve mixing, processing, thermal endurance, and flame resistance of silicone rubber compounds.

Laser marking additives permit to get rid of solvent-based inks, enabling clean and environmentally friendly cable marking with high throughput.

The unique silicone in-situ colouring technology allows cable producers to color silicone rubber directly while extruding wire insulation or cable sheathing. Changing from one color to another has never been so easy and can be done without discharging the extruder, with reduced scraps and increased productivity.
