Master batches

Effect pigments, aluminium pigments, gold bronze pigments, vacuum metallized pigments, polychromatic pigments

Color concentrates, or master batches as they are also called, are frequently used to tint plastics. In special cases, they can be directly colored. Metal pigment pastes in mineral oils that are compatible with polymers or plasticizers or preparations in granulate form (pellets) in PE are used here.

If gold-bronze pigments are used, due to the high processing temperature, the use of coated, temperature resistance pigment powders is recommended.

Constant®

The Constant® product group consists of gold-bronze and aluminium powders with an inorganic coating. Their resulting high thermal and chemical resistance makes them suitable for use in plastics (masterbatches), in particular, but also coating systems that are sensitive in their reactions.

D 50 value [µm] Solid content [%] Application
Constant® 2210/N 45 100
Constant® 2250/N 33 100
Constant® 2280/N 28 100
Constant® 4117/N 11 100

Constant® ON

The gold-bronze pastes of the Constant® ON group contain gold-bronze powder, whose particles have received an inorganic coating, and paraffin oil as a binding medium.

They are chiefly used in color concentrates which create visual effects in plastics. The coating endows with them high thermal and chemical resistance while the paraffin oil makes them very easy to incorporate in thermoplastic polymers.

D 50 value [µm] Solid content [%] Solvent Application
Constant ON/2210/N 45 85 +/- 2 paraffin oil
Constant ON/2250/N 33 85 +/- 2 paraffin oil
Constant ON/2280/N 28 85 +/- 2 paraffin oil
Constant ON/4117/N 11 85 +/- 2 paraffin oil

Luminor®

Luminor® is a relatively coarse gold-bronze group of products with a particle-size range of approximately 16-50 µm.

They are used in both brilliant industrial coatings and in decorative applications, as well as in the plastic industry. For sensitive coating systems, we recommend the use of Constant® qualities.

D 50 value [µm] Solid content [%] Application
Luminor 2210 50 100
Luminor 2250 35 100
Luminor 2280 20 100
Luminor 2350 16 100
Luminor 2550 35 100
Luminor 2580 20 100

Multiprint®

The Multiprint® is a fine, gold-bronze product group with a particle-size range of approximately 4-10 µm.

It is also used in the coating industry to achieve high-quality gold effects.

D 50 value [µm] Solid content [%] Application
Multiprint 4117 9,5 100

ON

ON pastes (both gold-bronze, but also leafing and non-leafing aluminium pastes) were specially designed for use in thermoplastic plastics.

The solvent paste is paraffin oil which guarantees an excellent and dust-free incorporation into the polymers.

D 50 value [µm] Solid content [%] Solvent Application
ON/2210 50 88 +/- 2 paraffin oil
ON/2250 35 88 +/- 2 paraffin oil
ON/2280 20 88 +/- 2 paraffin oil
ON/3050 11.5 88 +/- 2 paraffin oil
ON/4117 9.5 88 +/- 2 paraffin oil

Unicoat®

Medium-fine, gold-bronze products with a particle-size range of approximately 6-14 µm. They are used for industrial coatings, decorative-effects and plastic applications.

D 50 value [µm] Solid content [%] Application
Unicoat 3050 11,5 100
Unicoat 3220 10 100
Unicoat 3260 6 100
