With the rapid development of the economy, people's demand for packaging is becoming more and more diversified. Plastics are used in the packaging industry due to their versatility, durability and cost savings, ranging from sacks, woven bags, non-woven bags, nylon to Industrial bottles and containers. In order to produce different types of packaging, different types of plastics with different types of properties are required to suit the purpose of use and safety and environmental regulations. Below we will introduce the application of color masterbatch in the packaging industry.

Most common and popular types of plastic packaging

1. High-density polyethylene packaging

HDPE is a high density polyethylene plastic that is flexible, translucent/waxy, weather resistant, good low temperature toughness (to -60'C), easy to process by most methods, low cost, good chemical resistance. HPDE packaging is most commonly used in baby bottles, bleach, cleaners, shampoo bottles.


2. LDPE packaging

LDPE is low density polyethylene, a thermoplastic made from ethylene monomer, semi-rigid, translucent, very tough, has good weather resistance, good chemical resistance, low water absorption, and is easy to use with most method processing. LDPE plastics are used in tote bags, box liners and packaging films.


3. PET packaging

PET is polyethylene terephthalate, a highly flexible, colorless and semi-crystalline resin in its natural state. It has good dimensional stability, impact resistance, moisture resistance, alcohol resistance and solvent resistance, and is environmentally friendly. Therefore, it is used in carbonated beverages and water bottles, food trays.


4. PP packaging

PP is polypropylene, which has high flexural strength due to its semi-crystalline nature. Polypropylene has a relatively smooth surface. Polypropylene is very resistant to moisture absorption, so it is waterproof, durable, tough and does not stretch. PP plastic for bathtubs, food trays...


5. PC packaging

PC is polycarbonate, high temperature resistant, high transparency, durable and can be used in food containers and jars.



Advantages of Packaging Masterbatches

Masterbatch is a new type of special colorant for polymer materials, also known as pigment preparation, which is composed of three basic elements: pigment or dye, carrier and additive. Our masterbatch has the characteristics of bright color, uniform dispersion, strong tinting strength and simple coloring process.


In the packaging industry, in order to save production costs and improve production efficiency, manufacturers use color masterbatches as the main source of packaging production - color masterbatches for packaging. There are filler masterbatches and color masterbatches.


Filled masterbatch is used as a substitute for resin. Since the masterbatch contains additives, it can save material costs and improve production efficiency. Masterbatches are used as a substitute for pigments to color packaged products. Masterbatches can help producers create the exact shades they want for their products, and they can also help them increase production more efficiently.
