Coloring plastic is a science

Dec 22, 2017

 Men  should be familiar with everything from children's toys to  refrigerators and air conditioners, from bags to construction materials,  from computer housings to automotive components, from toothbrush  hygiene products to aircraft parts, colorful, antistatic and fire  retardant Plastic products in our lives everywhere. And these colors and properties depend on a new material called masterbatch.
    Masterbatch is a highly concentrated, high-performance color  formulations, that is, the pigment is evenly distributed in the carrier  resin at an extraordinary concentration, and is extruded and granulated  to form particles with a certain particle size, which is mainly used in  plastics.
    Early plastic products easily fade, color is not rich enough. Today's  plastic products bright and colorful, transparent, color, metal color  can be achieved, out of the past sense of cheapness. Even the most basic white color gives a different visual  impression under the influence of different materials, finishes and  light sources.
    In  recent years, increasingly stringent environmental standards, textile  printing and dyeing process wastewater discharge accounted for more than  70% of the total textile wastewater discharge for the textile industry,  "decontamination" has become an urgent issue. The use of masterbatch for liquid coloring provides a new direction for solving this problem.
    "Chemical  fiber masterbatch is just a new project this year, the technology  called polyester spinning solution before coloring. Polyester fibers in  the spinning process, directly spun out of the colored thread,  eliminating the need for printing and dyeing Links to avoid waste water emissions, with significant energy saving features.
    R  & D chemical fiber Masterbatch is adapted to the development of  low-carbon green textile economy cycle, to promote the industry  restructuring and upgrading trend. Color control of the entire textile sector in the raw fiber stage,  breaking the traditional printing and dyeing industry processes to  achieve non-dyed textile, clean and environmentally friendly production  process is a revolutionary revolution in the textile industry.
"It  is estimated that three years after the chemical fiber masterbatch  production scale will be doubled, the trial has been small quantities,  put more than 60 tons, the main customers are chemical fiber textile  enterprises .This is our main direction outside the expansion of new  areas of home appliances, the current North has not produced similar products manufacturers. "
    At  present, there are more than 30 domestic enterprises producing chemical  fiber masterbatch with a relatively small overall size and their  products are not widely used. The  future to further enhance product quality and type of development of  anti-bacterial, anti-static, flame retardant and other functional  colored fibers will be the development direction of the industry. With  the increasing pressure on environmental resources, this technology has  a broad space for development and will be a new blue ocean.
