Colour masterbatches for the Automotive Wiring Industry

Colour Masterbatches for the Automotive Wiring Industry: The Automotive Wiring Industry places high quality demands on Colour Masterbatches. This is a highly technical industry with ongoing technological changes in pursuit of improving efficiency and productivity, where production speeds are constantly increasing, wall thicknesses tending to become smaller and also where extruders are becoming shorter, so giving less time to incorporate the Masterbatches in the respective compound. Compound formulations are changing too, posing further challenges for the role of the Colour Masterbatch. The applications for these cables require a variety of thermal stability tests, depending on the corresponding Temperature Class.

First-time quality requirements are at their highest levels. The Quality of dispersion and ease of dilution of these Masterbatches therefore need be absolute.  Colour Masterbatches for Automotive Cables are subject to thermal and ageing requirements, which are measured with specific tests and equipment.

T1/T2 PVC

Masterbatch designed to colour cables of temperature classes T1 and T2, therefore exposed to considerable heat from radiation sources. These cables are expected to function under environmental temperatures ranging from -40 to +100ºC and their typical application is in passenger compartments and under cover.

T3

Masterbatch designed to colour cables of temperature class T3, therefore highly exposed to significant heat from radiation sources. These cables are expected to function under environmental temperatures ranging from -40 to +125ºC and their typical application is in proximity to the engine.

T4

Masterbatch designed to colour cables of temperature class T4, therefore highly exposed to considerable heat from radiation and conduction sources. These cables are expected to function under environmental temperatures ranging from -40 to +150ºC and their typical application is in the engine oil circuit.

T5

Masterbatch designed to colour cables of temperature class T5, therefore highly exposed to considerable heat from radiation and conduction sources. These cables are expected to function under environmental temperatures ranging from -40 to +175ºC and their typical application is in proximity to the exhaust and engine oil circuit.

T6

Masterbatch designed to colour cables of temperature class T6, therefore highly exposed to considerable heat from radiation and conduction sources. These cables are expected to function under environmental temperatures ranging from -40 to +200ºC and their typical application is also in proximity to the exhaust and engine oil circuit.
