UniColor™ Universal Masterbatch

This exciting new product line has emerged from RTP Company as an innovative answer to coloring multiple polymers, including engineering resins. UniColor® products are truly universal masterbatches with extremely low let down ratios, typically 1% or 2% depending on the resin and do not require drying prior to processing.

UniColor® is a great solution for processors that want one color product for applications made with different polymers. It is also ideal for low volume applications with buys as small as 50 pounds.

UV Stabilizer Masterbatch

Ultraviolet (UV) stabilizers extend the useful life of products exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight or other sources of ultraviolet radiation. We use UV inhibitors to protect the material by absorbing harmful wavelengths and/or interfering with the free radical formation of the polymer molecules from UV exposure. These proprietary blends of additives protect and enhance the polymer to provide a cleaner, brighter appearance over traditional stabilizer packages.

Cube Blends

A cube blend, also referred to as a salt & pepper mix, is a proportional mix that combines a masterbatch and natural polymer into a ready-to-use package. Color consistency and quality is ensured by RTP Company and the processor avoids steps related to blending or metering accuracy. One of the main advantages compared to precolored resin is that the majority of the polymer has not been previously melted by compounding, thus preserving its original properties.

Manufacturers and molders around the world rely on us for sound advice, quality color solutions, and outstanding technical support. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your color technology needs. Let’s get started by creating Your Color – Your Way!
