A new line of liquid colorants is aimed at extrusion, injection, and blow molding of clear thermoplastics like PC, PMMA, SAN, ABS, and PETG at low letdown ratios of 0.25% or less. PicoTint liquid colorants from PolyOne Corp., Avon Lake, Ohio, are based on a new polymeric carrier, instead of traditional oil- or surfactant-based carriers. The new carrier offers previously unattainable thermal stability and processability, PolyOne says. These colorants are also said to weather well and have an extended shelf-life of at least a year. They are said to be best suited to applications where clear, bright color is needed. Tel: (866) 765-9663 . www.polyone.com
