DELAWARE, OHIO — Carolina Color Corp. is targeting rotational molders from its plant in Ohio, the heart of the rotomolding industry.
Vincent Staropoli, general manager of the plant in Delaware, said the company now offers a line of 12 Roto-Dry standard colors plus a processing aid called Roto-Aid.
Rotomolding has been ignored by the color industry too long, Staropoli said.
``The process was really in the Dark Ages, and it has taken some tremendous leaps and bounds in the last few years. The technology, materials and controls have all improved,'' he said.
Because rotomolding is a unique process, in which powdered material melts and flows to coat the inside walls of a mold, the process poses unique problems, such as streaking and gassing, he said. Sometimes color can be rubbed off of a finished part. He said Carolina Color has solved those problems.
``We've also developed some new blending techniques that give us more-consistent color,'' he said.
