splash-swirl masterbatch

splash-swirl masterbatch

splash-swirl masterbatch

(OP)
can anybody give an idea that how to make splash-swirl masterbatchs. or what material cause splash or swirl effect.

RE: splash-swirl masterbatch

Google tells me its mainly organic dye pellets designed to burst open during the injection process. More defined details are likely to be company-specific, but there are plenty of companies out there willing to supply you with batches of their pellets.

Thanks for your reply. actually I am trying to Produce such kind of special effect masterbatche. do you have any idea what kind of Raw materials needed or any other clue?

RE: splash-swirl masterbatch

Get some pigments and wrap them in tiny capsules compatible with your desired plastic. the overall idea is simple enough, it's the actual implementation that will likely be more challenging.

RE: splash-swirl masterbatch

The effect is possible by using a plunger type moulding press, combined with a suitable carrier for the masterbatch. No chance with a conventional screw machine.

A sort of wood effect can be had with a dark base colour and a blowing agent additive. Trials and errors required.

Politicians like to panic, they need activity. It is their substitute for achievement.

RE: splash-swirl masterbatch

Interesting. Can any one share some photo of this masterbatch?

RE: splash-swirl masterbatch

Thanks. But it is masterbatch? Quite different with routine masterbatch. Sorry, I never saw it before. We are producing some nucleating masterbatch now and they are too much different. Anyway, thanks a lot for the sharing. I'll google more information about it.

Can anybody advise that what materials should be used for this kind of effect.
google is not helping much

RE: splash-swirl masterbatch

(OP)
For example, if I want to make transparent polystyrene parts with some colorful splashes or swirls. what should be the components of masterbatch?

RE: splash-swirl masterbatch

I would imagine dyes/pigments that are compatible with PS are the logical choice... information on what's compatible is easily obtainable.

White Paper - Effects of AIA Quick Guide to UL 489 or UL 1077
The function of a circuit breaker is to provide overload (thermal) and short-circuit (magnetic) protection to a circuit and its downstream components. A circuit breaker functions like an airbag in a car, protecting circuit components and people by tripping the circuit to interrupt the current flow if it detects a fault condition in the control system.

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
