Product Inquiry

Our high-performance color solutions for thermoplastics are low viscosity liquids comprised of the highest quality colorants dispersed in proprietary vehicles, compatible with most thermoplastics and engineering resins. 

In addition to our standard colors and chemistries, Ferro is continuously developing thermoplastic liquid color concentrates as new customer needs arise. Our custom color matching capabilities allow us to work closely with customers to create an application- and market-specific solution.


FERRO SPECTRAFLO LIQUID COLOR CONCENTRATES FOR THERMOPLASTICS 
Color concentrates are based on high pigment loading in a low viscosity proprietary vehicle.
Compatible with most thermoplastic and engineering resins. 

  • High pigment loading up to 80% decreases coloring cost and increases color uniformity
  • Let down ratios for opaque colors 100:1 to 200:1
  • Let down ratios for transparent colors >400:1
  • Range of standard single colorant dispersions immediately available
  • Custom colors are available on short notice 

  • Liquid color pigment for thermoplastics

    Advanced Color Matching
    Ferro technicians combine their talents with today's most advanced computer color analysis equipment to offer our customers precise color-matching services. Our spectrophotometry process minimizes metamerism, speeds up color matching, ensures consistent quality and helps identify the pigment combination that produces any given color for the lowest possible cost and right performance characteristics, including outdoor durability and NIR reflectance.

    Ferro can match your color chip/drawdown or we can refer to complete files of OSHA, Munsel, RAL, Federal Standard 595 Series or Pantone® matching systems to achieve your reference number. All of our colors are matched to Ferro standards or your reference sample, ensuring precise color reproduction from order to order.

    Providing Formulation Guides/Assistance with Startup Formula Creation
    We assist customers in their product development efforts to ensure regulatory compliance (e.g., usage in food, cosmetics) and desired performance including anticorrosion, outdoor durability and NIR reflectance.
