Sun Chemical’s Pigment Preparations Improve Efficiency; Offer Engineering and Sustainability Advantages
Pigment preparations are colorant solutions that are fully dispersed, free-flowing, and easy to meter. They are the more efficient way to color when compared to their powder counterparts.
With advantages such as shorter change-over times, easier cleaning for production lines, and significant reduction in reworking production batches, it’s no wonder they are gaining a lot of momentum as we engineer new color solutions.
Smart Solution for Sustainable Black Plastics
Solve your sorting issues for black packaging materials with a pigment preparation that can be used for recycling!
▪ High coloring efficiency
▪ Easy to use for recycling & mix with PO-recyclates
▪ Fully dispersed with consistent lot-to-lot quality
In the top part of the video, you see the production of a masterbatch using a powder pigment. Whereas in the bottom portion, you see the production of a masterbatch using Microlen® pigment preparation.
How pigment preparations improve the total cost of ownership (TCO):
Up to 65% higher throughput
Significant capacity gains
Avoid unnecessary batch rework
Improve scale-up from lab to production
Increasing processing speed
Mitigate risks and optimize return on invested capital (ROIC)
Changing compliance requirements
Need for circularity and recycling
Health and safety
Pigment Preparations Provide Sustainability Solutions in Three Dimensions
Intense chroma, strength and transparency
Improved efficiency results in better TCO
Save resources on quality control testing
Get it right the first time, optimize use of working capital
