A Masterbatch is a concentrated mixture obtained by the distribution of colors and additives into a polymer carrier by heat treatment and in-particularly a high-shear mixing extruder.
The preparation of a Masterbatch represents a demanding process since a high content of pigments or additives has to be mixed into a polymeric matrix.
ICMA is specialized in such processes and can boast different installations in this specific sector.
