Blow Molding - Plastics Color’s blow molding sample service allows clients to envision their custom-formulated product in a finished, blow-molded bottle in PET, HDPE or PP resin.

Plastics Color’s blow molder fabricates the test run right here on the premises.

Carrier Systems - Achieving the right look and performance specifications for your product is not a one-color-fits-all proposition. Different resins and molding applications call for different carrier systems, or methods of mixing colorants with the resin. Plastics Color can deliver the color you need in the method that best suits your resin and production process.
Options for carrier systems include:
• Compounds (Pre-color)
• LiquiSol Liquid Colorants
• UltraBatch (Super concentrate)
Whether you desire the rapid distribution of liquid, the color explosion of pellets or the ease of masterbatches, let our color experts help you determine which carrier system works best for your product and process.
Technical Expertise - With over 50 years of experience, we can assist you with every aspect from production assistance to full formula makeovers.
