Masterbatches are additives or pigments, which are in concentrated form, used for coloring or imparting desired properties to polymers. Masterbatch allows the molder to improve the appearance and performance of the raw polymer or resin in a cost-effective manner during the plastics manufacturing process. They are broadly classified into four types: black, white, color, and additive. Masterbatches are used in many end-user sectors such as Packaging, Consumer Goods, Textiles, Agriculture, Building and Construction, Automotive, and Furniture.
