Teknor Color Co. has added new forms to its PETek colorant system that it claims provide high clarity and color uniformity.
As well as the original minibead grade, the Pawtucket, R.I., firm now offers two standard-size bead and pellet types based on Teknor's proprietary carrier resin and a tradtional concentrate based on standard PET carrier resin. The four series, similar in cost, are suited to film, sheet, bottles and other molded products.
The new series address different processing requirements, Teknor said. The pellet series prevents screw slippage. The new bead series reduces screw slippage and can be used at high loadings. The traditional carrier series prevents premature melting.
