SmartColor™

Easier purge-outs and faster color change-overs for plastic extrusion

Ampacet Smart Color™ products help reduce purge time, reduce downtime to clean stained screws and dies, and reduce color contamination-related quality issues. Ampacet has developed a line of proprietary formulations where raw materials are selected for their ability to inhibit purging and screw-staining problems. These formulations have the ability to retard staining and screw build-up even before it can cause problems with purging. Ampacet utilizes SmartColor™ technology to create new color masterbatches that can outperform traditional pigment-based products for expeditious purge times.

Ampacet has worked with our customers to identify and address the root causes of prolonged extrusion clean-outs caused by color masterbatches. We have researched these material relationships and have developed new color masterbatch products that are customized for our customers’ specific requirements.
