The fundamental idea is to add smaller quantities of more concentrated colorant to virgin resin in order to achieve the target color, as opposed to using more conventional colorant.
There are numerous benefits to using G3 color concentrate not the least of which is lower cost to color. Another advantage is improved physical properties in the final part since highly-loaded concentrates deliver lower levels of carrier resin.
Carolina Color’s technologically advanced G3 is exceptionally well dispersed and distributes quickly and evenly in large parts.
In addition to enhancing material strength and performance, sheet extruders using G3 colorant have been able to reduce production costs and expand capacity via quantifiable throughput increases.
Those thermoformers forming sheet colored with G3 have seen less warp, enabling them to produce parts quicker while generating less scrap.
