Color and additive concentrates include over 7000 standard and proprietary formulations on file. Specializes in concentrates for polyolefins, PS, and engineering thermoplastics. Pigment/additive multifunctional concentrates tailored for granular and pelletized polyolefins. Universal concentrates for engineering thermoplastics, as well as products actually carried in nylon and polyester. Applications include extrusion coating, blown and cast film, injection and blow molding, pipe, profile, sheet, and fiber.
Flame-retardant concentrate No. 11341 used in polyolefin film extrusion and injection molding.
Concentrate FR 11371 reportedly can be processed at 600 F without adverse side effects and is suitable for HDPE, LDPE and their copolymers. Applications include extrusion coating of scrims for canvas replacement, construction paper and films, disposable clothing, and oil-can stock.
Concentrate FR 40173 with a maximum operating temperature of 520 F aimed primarily at unfilled PP. Its ability to disperse thoroughly and uniformly throughout the polymer reportedly makes it suitable for mono- and multifilament extrusion. Other applications are carpet backing, face yarn, rope, injection molded chairs, pipe fittings, and extruded film, sheet, and profiles.
Products 10407 and 10478 contain hindered amine light stabilizers and offer equivalent protection at lower concentrations than traditional absorbers such as benzophenones and nickel-based products. Product 40559 contains 20% of a hindered amine light stabilizer in PP. Product 10561 contains 20% of a polymeric HALS in LDPE. Product 100600 contains 10% of a new HALS performance blend in LDPE.
Spectratech products include concentrates containing a range of different light stabilizers.
These tones reportedly provide a "visual tactility", encouraging the consumer to reach out and touch.
Denesting aid for thermoformed and injection molded packaging also helps with mold release and scratch reduction.

Plastics are going “green,” but they will need some help to get there. Biodegradable polymers derived from renewable resources are attracting lots of interest and publicity, but that enthusiasm is counterbalanced by persistent questions of availability, cost, performance, and processability. All these issues are inter-related: Increasing demand will lead to more capacity, which will presumably lead to lower prices. But the foundation is market demand, which ultimately depends on whether biopolymers will have the performance properties and processability to compete with existing non-renewable plastics.
Broader use of plastics in building products and a growing desire to minimize painting of automotive parts is increasing the need for reliable predictions of light stability and weathering performance.
