Blacks

Colortech black concentrates have been carefully formulated and manufactured to provide you with the ultimate in product consistency, processability and cost-effective performance. Colortech also offers a custom formulation service that can tailor a specific concentrate package to your precise requirements.

Selecting the Right Black Concentrate

Today, carbon black is the most common pigment used in the manufacture of black concentrates for polymer processing. The proper carbon black grade can contribute high color and opacity, excellent ultra-violet light protection and even electrical conductivity to finished articles. Selecting the best carbon black concentrate for your specific polyolefin application requires careful consideration of pigment particle size, surface area and physical structure.

Colortech Blacks provide optimum dispersion quality and opacity performance in applications like blown and cast film, sheet and profile extrusion, blow and injection molding and extrusion coating.

Colortech offers a complete line of co-pigmented black masterbatches, which are an economical alternative to more costly single-pigment carbon black concentrates and are often recommended for use in less critical processing applications.

Colortech concentrates are available in an extensive range of carrier resins engineered to be compatible with most polymer systems.
