Processors reportedly can expect faster and easier color changes with the new family of SmartColor masterbatches from Ampacet Corp., Tarrytown, N.Y. These proprietary formulations reportedly are less likely to stain screws and other machine surfaces. Decreased color build-up with these masterbatches reportedly shortens purge times by as much as 60%. According to Ampacet, conventional purging agents remove color contamination after it occurs, but SmartColor retards such contamination beforehand. This development is based on three years of research that identified which raw materials cause less pigment deposition in extruders and molding machines. It has broadened how Ampacet characterizes its pigments to include purge performance and stain resistance in addition to hue, strength, and dispersion.
