To simplify your production process,
NPC offers to blend color concentrates with specified
additives needed in the final product. This service
allows you to blend fewer compounds with the base
resin. Examples of such additives include:
Protects the base resin from the effects of sunlight, which extends the life
of your final product.
Protects the base resin from the effects of processing.
Helps eliminate the development of a static charge in processing and in the
final product. Anti-Static Agents are commonly used to increase the shelf
life of many consumer products.
Slip Agents Oleamide/Erucamide
An internal lubricant that blooms to the surface, providing the necessary lubricity
to reduce friction and thereby improving the slip characteristics. Film products
typically use slip agents.
Anti-Blocking Agents Silica & Treated
This agent modifies the surface of a product to prevent it from sticking to
itself or another surface. Film products commonly use anti-blocking agents.
There are additives that you may desire in your raw material, that we can include
to aid in the processing of your products. An example might be calcium stearate,
which is used as an internal lubricant. Other examples are zinc stearate
and polyethylene wax.
Precise color duplication and excellent
dispersion can also be achieved by using dry color.
NPC's dry colors are produced with the state of
the art blending equipment. We insure complete and
even dispersion throughout each colorant.
Blended dry color is very popular for those who
want to color very small production batches. We can
formulate any color to meet your needs.
Plastics Color offers a full line of liquid colorants.
Some clients prefer liquid colorant for its high
loading and ease of dispersion. Liquid colorant
also uses a broad-based carrier, which allows its
use in most resins. Many times this can reduce
the number of required inventory items in your
National Plastics Color also offers
a special combination of Sand Mills Cowles Mixers
and milled pigments to provide a high quality dispersed
We will work with you to design an appropriate
dispensing system that works with your current
process. NPC can send to your factory liquid colorant
technicians that will work with your current situation
to ensure a successful implementation.
