New liquid colorant technology for clear plastics such as ABS, PC, PS, and acrylic is said to allow for much lower use levels than traditional colorants. Developed by PolyOne Corp., Avon Lake, Ohio, the new colorants are being field tested in food and beverage packaging and automotive lenses. Use levels as low as 0.25% are said to be possible without the typical problem of swirls that occur with traditional colorants, which require at least 2% use levels.
