Materials firms Ampacet Corp. and Avient Corp. have opened 2023 with new product launches.
Ampacet of Tarrytown, N.Y., has introduced a simplified color solution for short runs with RediBatch, a highly-loaded masterbatch concentrate with a universal carrier that provides processors with more flexibility and faster speed to market.
The palette of RediBatch colors, blacks and whites is compatible with frequently used popular polymers, officials said in a news release. FDA-approved RediBatch is available directly from Ampacet in small lot color orders from 50 to 2,500 pounds. Officials said the materials are ideal for injection molding, blow molding, tubes and profile and sheet extrusion applications.
"With RediBatch, there's no need to stock dedicated colors for each polymer, which enables processors to fulfill short-run orders without tying up valuable working capital with excessive color inventories," North American Business Development Manager Loren Flaharty said. "Simplifying short run color provides processors with important flexibility and productivity benefits."
Ampacet is one of North America's 30 largest compounders and concentrate makers. It employs more than 2,000 at 25 manufacturing sites worldwide and has annual sales of more than $1 billion.
