Silvergate has launched a new range of white masterbatch that it says offers accuracy and covering power
A ‘White Christmas’ has become a reality for one UK manufacturer with the launch of a new range of white masterbatches.
Wrexham-based Silvergate Plastics has developed the new range, called ‘Simply White’, which it says are cost-effective white masterbatches that perform extremely well in terms of colour accuracy and covering power. The company says that with a lower price tag than industry alternatives, Simply White is set to offer a high performance, low cost alternative for plastic processors.
Simply White has been developed to achieve good colour and opacity whilst helping overcome common problems related to screw and barrel wear. Silvergate says its latest offering to the market takes away the need for customers to specify titanium dioxide contents by providing an opacity index figure for each product.
“Simply White delivers a low cost product that does not compromise on quality, performance or compliance. For total peace of mind and complete assurance of quality, Simply White is fully compliant with Reach and is suitable for food contact applications,” said Tony Bestall, Managing Director of Silvergate.
Customers can work directly with Silvergate’s technicians at the company’s onsite colour matching suite to create specific whites, as well as choosing colours from its standard range. Simply White can also be combined with other performance-enhancing additives, including anti-statics and anti-bacterials, if required. The new range includes a ‘low wear’ version of every product to offer greater choice to the supply chain.
