ClearTint polymeric colorants help converters and brands add bright, transparent color to clarified polypropylene (PP) used in packaging, housewares, and appliances – without causing haze or nucleation.
- Virtually unlimited color spectrum
- No effect on material’s physical properties or warpage
- Consistent processing across colors
- Compatibility with injection molding, blow molding, and thermoforming processes
Unlike pigments, ClearTint colorants are non-nucleating and do not impart change to the Tc (crystallization temperature) of the polymer to which they’re added, eliminating the issue of color-to-color shrinkage variation.
ClearTint colorants are available in a solid concentrate form and are used like any other masterbatch. They are typically formulated for let down at 2% (50:1) but can also be formulated in a more concentrated 1% (100:1) format if the processor has the feeding capability.
The concentrates are available in numerous custom shades and feature suitability for use in food contract applications in the US and EU.
We offer expert technical support for ClearTint users, with full color matching capabilities and standard and custom-made colorants across the full color spectrum.
