2How do I obtain the lowest cost for my plastics products?
Using masterbatches allows the processor to maximize their purchasing power by buying larger amounts of natural polymer. That advantage, plus lower obsolescence costs invested in end of life colors as products change give masterbatches a great economic benefit over other modes of color delivery. Processors can also take advantage of masterbatch cost incentives, but avoid difficulties associated with monitoring proper metering by using a cube blend.

Samples are taken at key points in the manufacturing process and further processing cannot continue without Quality Control approval. No product leaves our facilities without first undergoing a battery of tests to determine that the material meets or exceeds the specifications established for that product. After meeting approval with specifications, each batch is further processed to ensure uniformity throughout
9How do you control and identify your products?
Every product is given a unique lot number for both backward and forward traceability. Each shipment is double-checked for conformance to the customer’s standing and special requirements.
10Do you monitor your raw materials?
All incoming raw materials are approved by Quality Control prior to use and receive a bar coded label for internal tracking purposes. Many are subjected to tests in their intended application. Further, our vendors are continually monitored to ensure a uniform supply of materials that meets established requirements.
11Can you provide solutions that are heavy metal free or satisfy other regulatory concerns?

13What are the benefits of your standard product line?
When a standard color is chosen development and lead times are generally shorter and economies of scale can be realized over comparable custom colors. These colors also have a proven history of success in many applications and a wide acceptance in the marketplace.
14What markets do you serve?

15Can you provide single product solution for various resin systems?
US MASTERBATCH JSC is designed specifically to satisfy the need for a multi-purpose product capable of coloring a wide range of resin systems. However, the use of a single product does have limitations and color differences are expected due to differences in resin opacity and inherent natural hues. Therefore, we also offer the ability to create precise custom matches to a single target for different polymers. This allows you to design using the benefits of differing polymer characteristics for individual components, but maintain uniform aesthetics in finished goods
