Manipulating the color
PolyOne has created a stronger bluish-black formula across different color fastness levels. New super black colors feature a 30 to 60 percent lower addition rate compared with conventional black masterbatch. In addition, a specialized technology helps to improve the strength of black and bluish shades.
Black is the most common pigment used in the manufacturing of black concentrates. Carbon black pigments have a range of particle sizes. The particle size determines the degree of jetness, a measure of black color intensity. Super blacks are made of special pigments with tailored particle sizes.
The super black series for PA and PET fibers offers the best darkness in the masterbatch market. Super black colorants can also meet the automotive interior requirements, even for microfibers.
Compared to traditional dye, dope/solution dye adopts a clean and water-free process for synthetic fiber coloration that doesn't cause any pollutants at all. Super black colorants have been specifically developed with strong emphasis on sustainability aspects.
Proper handling is essential to maintain good quality. The pack life of PolyOne’s super black colorants can be more than 3 weeks.
