PE Masterbatch Colour Chart & Processing Guide

Find the right colour for your polymer

Polymer specific masterbatch can deliver better results and be more cost-effective by lowering colouring costs per moulding than using a Universal. We can supply masterbatch in virtually any colour and carrier combination based on a physical sample or colour reference via our colour match service, however you might find that we already have a suitable product from our ever-growing portfolio below. These are available from stock or with much shorter lead times.

The following are generally suitable for injection moulding many commodity polymers, with a typical low addition rate of 2-3%, in LLDPE, LDPE, HDPE and PP, although some colours may have partial or no compatibility in HDPE and PP as indicated. In many cases these will also be suitable for use in TPE, TPU and Nylon, subject to trial. As always, we advise you to run tests to satisfy yourself as to the appropriateness of any product.

Colours and information shown are for guidance purposes only. Please call us if you have specific performance, effects or additive requirements. ​Always test before going into production. Plaques and samples are available on request. Please contact us for more information.

* Extra compatibility testing may be required for HDPE / PP

** Not suitable for HDPE / PP
