Color defines our life and is an important factor in innovative product design where color and technical requirements play an increasingly important role. We focus our efforts on meeting our customers’ needs. With our knowledge and the latest technical innovations, we can offer a comprehensive programme of color masterbatches. AF-Color® offers a large number of standardised solutions.
We also produce individual products in small amounts and deliver them straight to your production site. Our masterbatches come in all established carrier materials as well as in engineering thermoplastics. Special effects are also part of our offering, such as metallic effects, transparency, multi-color, marbling, wood effect and thermochrome.
We are Industry Trendsetters
A color masterbatch is a solid or liquid additive used to color plastics. It is a concentrated mixture of pigments or additives encapsulated during a heat process into a carrier resin, which is then cooled and cut into a granular shape. Masterbatches allow manufacturers to color raw polymer economically during the plastics manufacturing process. There are millions of color formulations. The team of colorists from AF-COLOR create tailor-made solutions, with the best value for money. Based on our unparalleled knowledge of color, we make individual masterbatches on custom production lines. We guarantee that you receive preparations of the highest quality and formulation consistency, with guaranteed adherence to formulation for years, if desired.
