Safety of plastic masterbatch in the production of household plastic products

by Tran Hoa Marketing

Plastic masterbatch, also known as masterbatches, are currently a common ingredient in the production process of everyday items, from toys for children, household appliances to manufacturing engineering components. Art. In particular, plastic masterbatch are very popular in the production of household items, or bottles, food containers daily to save production costs. So is the use of plastic beads in the production of household goods really safe? All will be answered through the following article.

Outstanding characteristics of plastic masterbatch in the manufacture of plastic products

Plastic masterbatch are a product in the form of plastic granules that are commonly used in the production of common products in everyday life. They are used by manufacturers to color plastic (color masterbatch) or transfer other outstanding characteristics to plastic (additives masterbatch). Plastic masterbatch are made up of a mixture of pigments and / or other additives after the formation of plastic particles, so the material is also known as plastic resin.

Thanks to the production process according to separate standards and carefully tested in each stage of production, plastic masterbatch possess many advantages inherited from the raw materials created such as durability, toughness, and withstand. High temperatures in weather conditions are harmful to plastics. Not only possessing outstanding physical features compared to other materials, plastic beads also help manufacturers reduce production budgets as well as shorten the time of product creation.

What types of plastic masterbatch are commonly used in the manufacture of plastic consumer products?

On the plastic market today, there are many common plastic materials commonly used in the manufacture of products that serve the everyday needs. These resins, when added to the manufacturing process together with the base resin to produce plastic masterbatch, will possess similar properties. In particular, we can divide three common plastic groups. The first group stands out is high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is often used in the manufacture of baby bottles for its safety, but at the same time the cost is equally high. To overcome that, manufacturers often choose PP masterbatch - the outstanding material in the production of food packaging. Not only has the structure relatively similar to HDPE or has the ability to create finished products with high durability, cost savings for manufacturers. Therefore PP masterbatch is often of special interest to manufacturers.

In addition to the above mentioned resins, there are also other resins such as PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) and PS (polystyrene) which are also popular in the manufacture of plastic masterbatch because of their low cost, and are easily found in other types. plastic bottles containing mineral water. However, PET is not recommended for use in food containers, especially in high ambient temperatures, and the shelf life of this ingredient is usually very short (within 10 days).
