    Whichever industry you’re in, you need to be able to choose from the widest possible selection of colorants across the spectrum. Clariant specializes in supplying pigments, pigment preparations and dyes, as well as optical brighteners for use in coatings, plastics, printing, consumer products and other special applications.   The plastics industry has touted this advantage for such a long time that we frequently do not consider the intricacies and potential problems that can arise when incorporating color into a polymer. But there is a science to this process; and as with all sciences, there are fundamentals that must be observed if things are to work properly.

    COLOR CHANGING PLASTICS One of the emerging technologies with potential to revolutionize the packaging industry is the use of color changing plastics. These would be packaging with the ability to alert consumers of a potential problem with a food product by producing a color File Size: KB. Liquid Colorants. Penn Color got its start in producing solid masterbatches, but we’ve also been producing liquid colors for inks and coatings applications for over 40 recently launched a line of liquid colorants to complement our solid color products – one of just a few colorant companies to produce both alternatives.

There are many functional considerations when selecting colorants. For example, many plastics are processed at very high temperatures and shear, and products are exposed to heat and light. The colorants must tolerate these conditions to function adequately. Developments in colorants for plastics.

[Ian N Christensen; Rapra Technology Limited.] -- At a time when it is critical to many plastics processors to add value to products, colorants are an essential part of the additives repertoire. Developments in Plastics Colorants Colorants and special effects are the largest group of a broad range of additives and masterbatches available to alter appearance, functionality, performance, safety, cost effectiveness, and processing efficiency of resins.

There are two basic types of. This latest edition of Coloring of Plastics: Fundamentals offers an updated introduction to color as a science while also providing the foundation for many additional technological subjects.

The basic families of colorants are described, along with their properties. The material examines how statistical analysis can improve the consistency of colored polymer production runs as well as the.

This concept was taken one step further by depositing colorants on these large size aluminum pigments, thereby creating a blue, green, and golden metallic looking colorant that can be used in plastics without flow lines. How Colorants Affect Plastic Characteristics by Denny Scher About the author: Denny Scher is the Marketing Manager for ICO Mold, a U.S.-based custom plastic injection molding and metal/plastic CNC machining company.

He has written numerous technical articles for the automotive aftermarket and plastics industries.

Purchase Coloring Technology for Plastics - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNThree categories of colors are used to manufacture thermoplastic colorants. The color categories include pigments, dyes, and special effect colors. The five colorant categories include dry color, liquid color, paste dispersion, masterbatch, and compounded color.

These colorants almost always contain dispersants and other additives. Methods of Coloring Plastics. feed into the press at a predefined ratio to achieve the desired batches are the most economical method to color plastics and can be provided in small volumes.

Depending on the carrier selected, the same masterbatch may be used to color several different resins, or be chosen for maximum. Plastic colorants are chemical compounds used to color plastic. Those compounds come in a form of dyes and pigments.

The type of a colorant is chosen based on the type of a polymeric resin, that needs to be colored. Dyes are usually used with polycarbonates, polystyrene and acrylic polymers. Pigments are better suited for use with polyolefins.

Pantone's extensive line of plastic-specific color matching tools gives designers the resources you need to reproduce accurate colors. Partner with Pantone. Traditionally colorants in plastics were used to imitate the materials they may have been replacing: glass, wood, marble, and metals.

Today the role of colorants has been expanded to include Author: Scott Heitzman. Believe it or not, there is a whole scientific body of knowledge about the ways in which adding color to plastic can affect the behavioral properties of the plastic.

This paper takes a high-level look at some of the different, and surprising, ways colorants can have an effect on plastics. Pigments used to color molded thermoplastics Over the past two months, we have been discussing key factors to consider when choosing color for your plastic molded parts.

Our final discussion on color will revolve around the use of pigments and dyes to give color to molded parts. Because there are many different pigments thatFile Size: KB. Complete examination of materials, processes and performance of plastics includes many recent developments-at the molecular, micro and macro levels-such as conductive polymers, nano technology, biodegradable polymers, bio-based raw materials, twin-sheet thermoforming, and health considerations of by: Pigments and dyes are distinctly different types of colourants.

A pigment is a finely-divided solid which is essentially insoluble in its polymeric application medium. Pigments are incorporated by a dispersion process into the polymer while it is in a liquid phase and, after the polymer solidifies, the dispersed pigment particles are retained Cited by: 3.

The basic families of colorants are described, along with their properties. The material examines how statistical analysis can improve the consistency of colored polymer production runs as well as the colorants used to match the color.
