Performance Colour Systems is a team of technical specialists, focusing on the Chemical sector, having specific expertise rooted within the Plastics Industry. Coming from both an engineering and chemical background, our skilled staff offer technically based solutions, specific to your polymer processing application, namely Roto Moulding, Injection Moulding, Extrusion (film, fibre, cast, sheet etc.) and Blow Moulding.
Our team has been trained to supply solutions based colour and additive systems, split across the four divisions within our organisation:
Masterbatch: Polyolefin (LD,LLD,HD,PP), PET, Polystyrene, EVA, Engineering polymers
Pastes: PUR & PVC
Pigments: Polyolefin, PET, Polystyrene, EVA, Nylon, Acrylic, PVC, Engineering polymers
Liquids: Polyolefin, PET, PC, PVC
Our additive range includes advice and supply of key growth areas within each segment:
Performance Colour Systems Executive Committee have a combined total of over 100 years experience in the plastic colourant and additive industry. We have a comprehensive range of colour and additive Masterbatches for use in all plastic processing applications, including products which are safe for food contact applications (packaging) and children’s toys. Our colour-specific matching facility has state of the art colour prediction equipment. This, together with a complete range of finishes, from pearlescents and fluorescents to effect pigments and laser markers, ensures that we meet our partners exacting requirements.
This innovative division pioneers local production of an exciting new technology for colouring plastics.
The addition of Liquid colourants and additives for the Polyolefin plastics market has been a real valued-added inclusion into our portfolio. The top application is designed for Injection Moulding applications and some of the substantial benefits are:
• Cycle time improvement over certain pigment and Masterbatch formulations
• Significant reduction in clean out time
• Faster colour changes over time
• Lower dosage levels (reduced stock holding and improved cash flows)
• Eco-friendly formulations that do not require heat when being produced
The pigment blend division has been pioneered with the support of our sister company “Liquid Colours”. This offering is unique in that we cater not only for all plastics processes, but we also cover the complete resin spectrum:
Pigment orders are processed from as small as 1 Kg lot sizes all the way to ton lot deliveries. Depending on the market segment, same day production is a key differentiator within our pigments division.
