Masterbatch for Coloration IR-Detectable Packaging
Due to the new packaging regulations and the new requirements of our customers, we have developed a new carbon-free masterbatch range for packaging materials. AF Color®IRD (Infra Red Detectable). Through infrared spectroscopy in the recycling plants, plastics are identified, sorted and recycled. Carbon fully absorbs and prevents reception of the IR detector data - therefore error-free recycling is not possible. Carbon-free colored plastics can be detected by the sensor thus a successful editing process is given. Every color can be matched without the use of carbon. We would appreciate to test an IR-detectable color formula for your packaging application.
Coloring for High Temperature Engineering Polymers
So far, mainly inorganic pigments could be used for the high temperature range. Many color goals couldn’t be achieved. The new AF-Color® HP (High Performance) products are applicable for a plenty of polymers, e.g. PPS, PPA and PEEK. Due to the new color recipe of these masterbatches, not only the color range has expanded enormously, also the color stability at temperatures up to 350 ° C is still given. If you are looking for a heat-stable masterbatch in your favorite color? Please contact us.
