Color Concentrate/Masterbatch

Color: Black

A first in Canada! Color concentrate/masterbatch available for hobbyists/DIY'ers and Industry alike. Masterbatch is a solid additive for plastics used to color or impart other properties to the host material.

Matter3D's color concentrate is specially formulated to mix easily during the filament extrusion process! Our resin is available for PLA, ABS, and PETg. Along with the colors/materials presented, custom colors/materials are available as well! Please contact for more info. 

Color concentrate has a mix ratio of 25/1.  Color saturation will vary depending on the opacity of the base resin chosen.  Use more colorant if you want a darker shade, use less if you want a lighter shade.

Each kilo of masterbatch will yield at least 25 kilos of product.
