ABOUT

DOUGLAS BAKER PLASTICS

QUALITY, INTEGRITY

EXPERIENCE

Established over 40 years ago and centrally located in the United Kingdom, Douglas Baker Plastics is still a family run business and we pride ourselves on our ability to satisfy the requirements of our customers in a world of ever increasing demands. Our aim is to exceed our customers’ expectations. Our technical team has vast technical knowledge available to support your projects and provide solutions to your problems.

 

Today our company is a leading manufacturer of colour, black, white, additive and multifunctional masterbatch providing a high concentrate package for either colouring, or enhancing the performance, of plastic. A selection of high quality pigments and/or additives are formulated to your specific requirements, then encapsulated within a carrier polymer via a heat process (extrusion) and pelletised for you to let down into your chosen dilution polymer using a pre-defined ratio (normally between 1% - 5%). During your moulding process the masterbatch will disperse homogeneously within your polymer. Our products are used in a vast range of applications worldwide and will work within the injection moulding, blow moulding and rotational moulding processes and are also suitable for sheet and film extrusion.

Our core principles of quality, integrity, flexibility, speed of service and competitive pricing are supported by ongoing investment in our employees and our production facilities. This commitment helps keep us at the forefront of masterbatch processing and whilst we are large enough to supply major international clients, we are small enough to have the flexibility to respond rapidly to clients individual requirements.
