Among main benefits of calcium carbonate concentrates are cost savings, productivity gains, better products quality and environmental advantages.
The quality of a masterbatch is measured, among other things, by the particle size of the incorporated pigment, by the degree of dispersion of this and by the quality of the base resin and its compatibility with the resin to be colored.
Another important factor in the quality of a masterbatch is the number of mineral charges included in its composition. The price is the reason why these charges are incorporated where they are admitted by the processor by the final product.
The pigment concentration ranges from 15 to 30% for organic pigments and up to 60% when it comes to inorganic pigments. The doses to be used in the process usually vary between 1% to 3.0%.
