Broadway - Masterbatch


Experts in producing custom colour masterbatches, plastic compounds, additive and effect masterbatches and roto powders. Moulders in the UK and Europe rely on Broadway for high-quality products and fast turnarounds. Their colours are specified by leading brands and are used in many market sectors.


Broadway specialises in producing cost-effective, polymer specific, custom colour masterbatch. The team are always happy to provide a free colour match and custom colour orders can often be turned around within one working week. They've matched more than 53,000 unique colours since they started operating over 26 years ago.

Their universal colour masterbatch range provides the ultimate in versatility, functionality and speed – at competitive prices. All 122 colours are formulated for a low addition rate, for use in a wide variety of materials. This means there's virtually no product that can't be enhanced with a splash of colour.

Broadway's colours can be combined with special effects from their impressive portfolio. Their frosted effect for PET is said to be the best available. They also offer a diverse range of functional additives and processing aids. These can be supplied as standalone masterbatches, or incorporated into colour masterbatches. All Broadway's products are free from heavy metals and confirms to EN71 and AP(89)1 regulations. FDA compliance is also available upon request.


With customers always in mind, Broadway invested in an on-site colour-matching suite. This facility is perfect for moulders or brand owners looking to approve a range of new colours in a single day. With access to Broadway's friendly team and expert colourists, customers have the option to visit Broadway to approve samples on-site as they’re made. This is great in allowing the Broadway team to demonstrate first-hand the impact of using various levels of PCR within sample mouldings. Impressive wall displays show a multitude of end products as well as shades and special finishes – providing extra inspiration should you need it. With Wi-Fi available, your office is never too far away, but feel free to sit back and enjoy the coffee whilst Broadway's expert team does all the hard work for you.


2021 saw Broadway make a large investment in R&D with a new laboratory being built at their site in Holton, Suffolk. The laboratory at Broadway is equipped with modern technology, allowing virtually limitless colour selection and tight QC control. Their technical team are supported by a comprehensive range of analytical equipment including spectrophotometers, a QUV accelerated weather station and Xenon Arc UV chamber. With vast experience and the latest pigments and equipment to hand, their lab team are able to provide the highest possible accuracy and consistency with your colours. Recent developments include NIR detectable black masterbatches, an odour neutraliser additive and an endothermic blowing agent allowing a reduction in material usage and costs.


If you experience inconsistencies when colouring with masterbatch then Broadway's compounds can offer you the solution. Where customers using masterbatch have to dose and distribute this accurately throughout production, those using compounds move ownership of this process to their supplier. This can be particularly beneficial in situations where colour consistency is vital or where challenges in production are encountered. Broadway has experience in providing customers with bespoke products to help them overcome specific challenges. Their knowledge, experience and use of the latest technology allows Broadway to understand each customer's unique requirements and deliver solutions that will provide genuine value.

With complete colour control in-house, Broadway also manufactures high-quality rotational moulding powders. These are all ground to a standard 500 microns and are available in various melt flow and density options. Their powders also go through a rigorous QC procedure to ensure quality and consistency, plus they're available with industry-leading turnaround times.

Broadway offers a wide variety of additives including: anti-microbial, anti-counterfeit, UV protection, mould release, anti-static and laser-marking. These will help to ensure that your components process correctly and meet the needs of their end applications.
