Germany’s Rowa Group (Pinneberg; has launched a new black masterbatch that is based on high-quality post-industrial recycled polyamide. The colourant is recovered carbon black, obtained through the pyrolysis process, which offers a sustainable substitute to traditional carbon black.

The “Rowalid” EcoPA-B0995A rCB masterbatch is said to be ideally suited for applications in automotive engineering, electronics and electrical engineering, construction, and sport and leisure products.

Rowa also said that it has added colour near-infrared (NIR) detectable masterbatches to its portfolio. Additionally, the company is offering customers the use of a hand-sized NIR detector to check the reflective properties of their formulations, and whether or not the colour setting is detectable.

Rowa is one of the many companies that started offering alternative black pigments that do not contain carbon black a couple of years ago (see of 18.06.2020).
