Solid color and additive masterbatches, also known as color concentrates, have been the industry-wide best practice for coloring polymers throughout the globe. The combination of performance, cleanliness, storage and shelf life, ease of use and cost-effectiveness gives these plastic colorants significant advantages over pre-colored resin compounds, liquid color and raw pigments in most plastic applications.
While many color concentrate manufacturers focus only on high output from their extrusion lines, Penn Color strives for the highest quality pigment dispersion. Dispersing and developing the pigments is the most critical job of a masterbatch producer – as dispersion brings out the strength, brilliance, clarity, and hue of the pigments.
At Penn Color, we’ve standardized our compounding equipment across all of our production sites; by utilizing proprietary screw designs, ensuring optimum mixing and high-quality pigment dispersion. This makes certain that the product will be free from undispersed pigment particles, surface imperfections, and color-shifting during processing in the final application.
Our color concentrate pellets are available in a variety of particle sizes to best match your dosing equipment capabilities, including:
As a leading color concentrate manufacturer, all of our plastics masterbatch and color concentrate facilities are ISO compliant and fully integrated with one another through our Oracle MRP & CRM system. Each plant utilizes the same master raw material, palette identical processing procedures, policies, standardized production equipment and QC testing equipment resulting in increased reproducibility and reliability.
By eliminating as many variables as possible, a color or additive masterbatch can be replicated from line to line, from plant to plant and from country to country.
Penn Color….for consistently correct color, every time.
