Color Lab Capabilities

Our color laboratories are fully equipped with computerized color matching systems and analytical testing equipment for developing your customized colorants plus specialized additives. We can solve critical color problems right on your shop floor. Technical expertise as well as state-of-the-art equipment to formulate, compound, process, plus manufacture superior formulations, distinguishes us from peer players, enhancing our credibility beyond that of a custom compounder of color and additive concentrates for thermoplastics.

Adhering to CONEG, NSF and FDA standards, our team has formulated over 200 dyes plus pigments to address standard coloring needs. With over 30,000 archived formulations, our color library serves as an invaluable resource to our customers. When it comes to the development of custom formulations, the process begins by obtaining a nearest match to your specified color with the help of our in-house matching systems. Factors such as optimal pigment loading, heat stability, FDA compliance, and cost containment are considered with no compromise in quality, to create custom formulations according to your requirements.

Minimal formulation of pigment loadings -fewer than four- ensures that our colorants induce the least impact on the physical properties of your finished parts. Based on the computer match or visual assessment of our skilled staff, color chips are then produced. The color matching process is repeated until your desired shade and opacity are obtained. Pre production, rapid prototyping capabilities enable us to incorporate your feedback into production processes.
