Color and impact strength enhancement are combined in new color concentrates from Teknor Apex Co.
TekTuff concentrates withstand two-thirds greater impact than standard color concentrates, according to the Pawtucket, R.I., company. In falling dart tests, the concentrates typically withstand up to 161 foot pounds per inch, compared with 96 foot pounds per inch for typical color concentrates.
Teknor Apex envisions applications in brightly colored polyolefin products such as pails, trash cans and chairs. The company plans to expand the TekTuff product line suitability with styrenic resins.
