White Masterbatch certainly isn’t a new concept, or Masterbatch as a whole for that matter. When the plastics industry really took off back in the 60s, colours were relatively limited to blacks, whites, greys etc. This actually didn’t change much until the 70s when the masterbatch industry introduced a whole cocktail of available colours, changing the way we saw plastics forever. This doesn’t take away from the fact that, in terms of importance to the plastics industry, white and black masterbatch are top of the pile.
