Carolina Color introduces G3 line of colorants
Carolina Color Corp., a family-owned company since 1967 headquartered in Salisbury, NC, with locations in North Carolina and Ohio, has introduced its new 3G line of colorants. The new colorants represent the company's next-generation products, following on the patented G2 line. G2 colorants are an innovative product in which pigments and additives are highly loaded and well dispersed with effective distribution properties for both large and small parts. Building on the strength of G2 in the marketplace, Carolina Color developed G3.

Carolina ColorG3 colorants can be used in all olefins and engineering resins, and they provide higher pigment-loaded custom colors. Additionally, notes the company, they have a lower environmental impact than previous generations because of a reduction in production energy, packaging materials and CO2 emissions.

Carolina Color's G3 product line has proven to be effective in diverse applications such as packaging, housewares, lawn and garden and transportation. The technology can be applied to most major polymers including acrylic, PET, PS, ABS, TPO and high-gloss materials.

The company states that converters will be impressed by the new G3 technology, whether performing injection, blowmolding or extrusion. "Some extruders have already reported an increase of 15% in input rates," said Kyle Holder, Packaging Category Director, at the recent Thermoforming Conference in Atlanta. "We can also get higher UV additive loadings, and G3 is effective in color spaces that require organic pigments."
