Wrexham-based masterbatch manufacturer Silvergate Plastics has developed a new solution which addresses the build-up of pigments in machinery.
The company developed the tailor-made masterbatches after film manufacturers had reported pigment build-up in machines despite regular clean downs.
The clogging, Silvergate said in a release, slows down cycle times and disrupts overall production.
The new solution incorporates “quality ingredients that work together to improve dispersion during manufacture”.
Available in different colours, Silvergate’s new masterbatch formulation was developed specifically to address the issue for the film market.
Manufacturers trailing the products have reported improved colour accuracy for plastic films, plus increased productivity.
