Coloring Technology for Plastics by Ronald M. Harris

By Ronald M. Harris

The papers during this anthology have been awarded in the course of seven ANTEC and RETEC symposia among 1995 and 1998, and chronicle a few of the advances within the plastics coloring expertise box in the course of that point span. The unifying subject matter of the papers is "creating extra value.The interactivity of the package deal layout method has endured to call for advances in coloring expertise, and the price of having the ability to use product visual appeal is obviously obvious. otherwise to create worth is via being responsive via "Speed to industry. brands and providers need to reply to the call for in their shoppers, but fabricators can't be overlooked of their wish for first run recognition of colour. a majority of these matters etc are mentioned inside this authoritative evaluate of coloring expertise.

The finer aluminum types appear darker, and particularly in the fine range of 3-10 m µm, have a graying effect in combination with not very bright colorants. To come back to the question of hiding. The reason why better hiding is achieved with smaller metallic pigments is because they form more of a multilayered barrier. This barrier allows less light to penetrate than when formed by large particles. Aluminum pigments with a wider particle size distribution (industrial grade) contain mostly enough fine particles to hide well even if the average particle size is coarser.

This process has been evaluated and developed for the last 4 years on a pilot plant. Today, the industrial plant is running under the same conditions as the pilot plant. This evolution in production has to bring at least some quality improvement in pigments over the batch process and preferably some specific advantages for the end-users. Some of these studies will be presented in this paper. INTRODUCTION The end-user of a pigment needs specific characteristics from which the most important are: 1 The color (L, a, b or L, c, H) 2 The reproducibility and the consistency 3 The predictability in his formulations Other aspects such as tinting strength, dispersability, chemical resistance ...

As a result, designers have incorporated the use of fluorescent products in many creative ways to enhance product sales. The unique brightness of a fluorescent may be employed alone when one is trying to set their product apart from the rest in a competitive situation. In addition, fluorescents can be used as an accent in contrast to a more drab color, or they may be added to conventional pigments to brighten an otherwise dull color. Due to the specialty of this market, only three domestic and four foreign manufacturers have enjoyed any real success in the manufacture of fluorescent colorants.
