Teknor Color Co. has new color concentrates for use with polylactic acid and blends.
The Pawtucket, R.I., company says the three series of colorants are designed for clear and opaque bottles, film, sheet, profiles and injection molded goods.
One series uses PLA as the carrier and is suited for use in all biodegradable applications. Another has a copolyester carrier resin and is for biodegradable blown film and other uses requiring greater flexibility than is possible with 100 percent PLA.
The third series of concentrates has a PET carrier and is aimed at nonbiodegradable end uses where application of a biopolymer like PLA is desired, such as in toys and housewares.
All series are available in a wide range of colors.
