Colored beads should have the following characteristics to meet the needs of the plastic toy industry:
1. Odorless, non-toxic, chemical stable, resistant to acids and bases.
2. Should have high concentration, good dispersion. The surface must be smooth and have stable color and high durability.
Pigments in color masterbatch are available to achieve ideal dispersion, and can ensure color stability in many product batches. Keeping the chemical stability of pigments and other auxiliary substances, reducing the thermal decomposition of plastic resins. Because of the good mixing effect between color and plastic particles, conventional or artificial mixing equipment can be used. It is very convenient to apply.
This color beads is suitable for bodybuilding frame, outdoor ball, beach toys, magnetic control toys, music toys, jigsaw toys, building blocks, rattles, bed or car decoration cars, resins, pet chew toys, air guns, model cars, trains, military aircraft and weapons, dolls, entertainment equipment, revolvers, battery-powered carts, trailers, cribs, train tracks and indoor play equipment.
