Masterbatch

Our special systems efficiently and cost-effectively meet the specific demands of masterbatch and color batch concentrate manufacturers.

Our processes and systems for the production of masterbatches function seamlessly together to allow optimum results to be achieved.

Conveying, temperature control, filtration, pelletizing or grinding and drying are performed as gently as possible for uncompromising results – no matter whether spherical or cylindrical pellets, micropellets or powders.

The concentrated addition of colored, black & white or function masterbatches produces very good results during the further processing.
