Carolina Color has introduced a new colour concentrate specifically for use with PET resins.

UltraPET is said to represent a continued growth in colour innovation based on G2, a patented technology from Carolina Color in which pigments and additives are highly loaded, well-dispersed and can effectively distribute in both large and small parts.

Matt Barr, chief executive of Carolina Color, said: “We are thrilled to introduce this product line to meet the PET colour needs for the plastics moulding industry. Innovation is a core competency of Carolina Color and this type of investment is necessary for the company and the industry to grow.”

Targeted applications for this product include cosmetic packaging, vitamin bottles, sample liquor bottles, spice jars and thermoformed sheets.
