Colloids is putting its new lines 'in reach' for visitors to Interplas
UK-based manufacturer of masterbatch and colour concentrates, Colloids Ltd, has launched a number of advances in its product lines as it continues to enter new markets and industries.
The firm says it will display several of these at Interplas in order to demonstrate the new products to the UK market.
“At Interplas we will be presenting the complete spectrum of our competencies,” explained Josephine Bagnall, Sales and Marketing Director at Colloids. “Having expertise with black, white, colour and additives we can help clients succeed whether they are analysing requirements including colour, properties and performance; formulating afresh; or matching or repeating formulae.”
For the burgeoning UK packaging sector, the company is introducing new developments in colour and special effects, including “revolutionary” new marbling effects that it says are particularly striking in packaging applications.
Best known for its functional black masterbatch, the company has recently fine-tuned its ‘maxim’ universal masterbatch range, which comprises over 200 colours that Colloids says it has carefully selected to mirror current trends.
“We ran through all our data and checked figures over time: which colours were selling, and which were not. Then we removed the worst performers and introduced new colours aligned with the latest tastes,” explained Josephine Bagnall, Sales and Marketing Director for Colloids. “We know all about that already from our extensive work with designers on bespoke projects spanning consumer to domestic and beyond.”
Colloids has also recently made developments in its biopolymer masterbatches, launching its new ‘Sustain’ line, which is said to be ideal for film/sheet extrusion, injection and blow moulding as well as fibre-based applications. The new masterbatch has a reduced carbon footprint and is fully recyclable, something the company says ties in with its ISO14001 Environmental Management System accreditation, which sees it committed to continually developing novel technologies in areas such as bioplastics, polymer recycling, energy recovery and responsible disposal.
Alongside its newest lines the company will exhibit masterbatches specifically designed for laser marking, to ensure the right effects for both thermal and photochemical applications, as well as additives for process performance and specified properties in the end product.
