What is a Masterbatch Extruder?


A Masterbatch extruder is a machine specifically designed to melt down plastic pellets and mold them into the desired shape. A masterbatch extruder uses the extrusion process to produce large quantities of plastic products in different shapes and sizes. The method of melting and blending takes place in a barrel-like form with two pistons on either side. These pistons rotate around in opposite directions at different speeds to push the polymer through the barrel at high pressure.

Purpose of Masterbatch extruder

The purpose of using this machine is to give you total control over all parameters, such as temperature and mixing time required for mixing different polymers. This is why many people prefer using masterbatch extruders instead of pelletizers or compounders because these machines can easily handle various types of polymers without difficulty.

The raw material of masterbatch

Masterbatches can be made from various polymers, including polyester, polypropylene, and nylon. The list of polymers you can use to make masterbatches is long and varied. However, the most commonly used polymers for producing masterbatches are:

  • Polyethylene (PE)

  • Polypropylene (PP)

  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)

How does it work?

The process of making a masterbatch extruder is straightforward and can be broken down into four steps:

  • The plastic pellets are melted down in the extruder

  • The molten plastic is pushed through a die

  • The molten plastic is forced out of the die

  • The molten plastic is cut into the desired length


An extruder is a machine that melts and then forces out plastic material in a continuous stream. This can be used to make various shapes, including tubes and rods, and objects with more complex geometries, such as bottles or automotive parts. The most common type of extruder has two components: a barrel and an auger screw that rotates within the barrel. The screw acts like a pump, pulling molasses-like material from one end of the barrel to another, where heating elements melt it before being forced out through holes in its side at high pressure.

Masterbatch Extruders are used for mixing different types of plastic materials with additives such as colorants, lubricants, and fillers during manufacturing processes; this mixture is then put into the extruder, which melts them down into usable form before being cast or molded into shape by other machines (such as injection molding machines).

Advantages of Using Masterbatch Extruder

The advantages of using a Masterbatch extruder are:

  • Higher output. The capacity of this machine is generally higher than that of other types. Therefore, it can produce more material in a given time.

  • More consistent quality. The device has a high degree of automation and can precisely control the temperature to ensure that the product has the desired properties (such as color and hardness). This allows us to achieve better consistency in terms of quality when compared with conventional machines or manual mixing processes.

  • Higher efficiency: As mentioned above, you will be able to save time when using this type of machine because it consumes less energy than alternative methods like hand mixing or batching by hand; moreover, there will be less maintenance work needed due to its reduced weight compared with other solutions such as tanks or drums which require regular cleaning before they reach their maximum capacity limit (i

Technical data

The most important parameters are:

  • The size of the extruder is usually expressed as its diameter (in mm). An extruder with a smaller diameter or barrel has a higher flow rate and can be used for products with a higher viscosity.

  • The length of the extruder affects processing speed and product consistency. Longer barrels can produce more material at once than shorter ones, but they also take longer to warm up and cool down between batches.

  • The diameter of the scrapers used in your mixer determines how much material will accumulate on them during mixing, so choosing too small scrapers for your application may result in reduced quality or even blocked pipes if there's too much buildup!

What is a color masterbatch extruder line?

The color masterbatch extruder line is a system of machines that mix and extrude color masterbatches, which are then used to dye the filament used to make 3D printing filaments. Color masterbatches are typically made from thermoplastic polymers, allowing a wide range of dyes and pigments to be added to achieve a specific color. The color masterbatch extruder line is the leading equipment to produce color masterbatch, widely used in plastic processing. The color masterbatch extruder line consists of a twin-screw extrusion mixer, pelletizer, and cooling machine. The twin-screw extruder is a screw pump that can melt and transport materials in a range of temperatures from room temperature to 230°C.
