Clariant Masterbatches, Holden, Mass., now stocks over 80 of its most popular heavy-metal-free universal color concentrates for fast delivery in quantities as small as 25 lb. Orders of OmniColor products received by 1 p.m. EDT are available for same-day shipment to customers in North America OmniColor colorants are based on a multipurpose, widely compatible carrier system for use in a wide range of plastics at an average letdown ratio of 100:1. This is four times higher letdown than the 25:1 ratio typical for other colorants. The “universal” nature of these colorants reportedly allows users to inventory fewer color concentrates. Both factors make these cost-effective products, according to Clariant. (800) 345-0372 • www.clariantmasterbatches.com
