Modern Dispersions Inc., a global supplier of thermoplastic compounds and concentrates, has introduced blue-tone carbon black masterbatches for use in automotive interior applications.
According to the firm, this product complements the company's line of masterbatch formulations for the automotive industry and comes in response to customer demand for blue-tone black colors.
The company will introduce the new masterbatch at the K 2016 exhibition, Oct. 19-26 in Duesseldorf, Germany.
Modern Dispersions' three new blue-tone carbon black masterbatches are targeted for door panels, instrument panels and other interior applications, according to the firm. Typical automotive applications require strong dispersion of pigments into various interior surfaces to match the overall color scheme, according to Modern Dispersions, including higher jetness along with different undertones from a pigment masterbatch to match the overall interior scheme.
