Abrasives, Adhesives, Sealants, & Tape are miscellaneous construction materials requiring a broad array of dye and pigment classes to meet chemical compatibility and physical parameter requirements. Our colorants can be found in resin-bonded colored sanding discs, pads, belts, sponges, rolls, & sheets, wood and tile adhesives, highly durable and flexible silicon & butyl-based sealants, and tapes for industrial, insulation, & HVAC duct-work applications. Our standard line of dyes and pigments for abrasives, adhesives, sealants, & tapes are shown below. We have many other water-based dyes that can also be custom-formulated into your unique product application.

 

OrcoSolve™ Solvent Dyes

Solvent Dyes are used in many different applications in adhesive manufacturing, especially solvent-borne or hot melt adhesives. The coloring is used for branding and product aesthetics, but also for a visual inspection of adhesive application and coverage, especially for clear or partial opaque type adhesives.

Actual pigment and dye samples must be evaluated in a laboratory on medium to be colored in production for accurate shade and physical property results. Shades shown on print material and computer monitors are for general reference only as they are inherently inaccurate due to calibration variations and technical limitations of monitors and printers.

OrcoSperseTM Pigment Dispersions

Pigment Dispersions are widely used in the water-based adhesive industry for product identification, product application indication, and for color compatibility with other finishes.

Pigment Dispersions also play a major part in the branding and consumer interest for adhesives tapes and sheet media. In these cases, the Pigment Dispersion is usually applied as a coating or surface layer.

Pigment Dispersions are widely used for branding, wear indications and product characteristics for many abrasive applications, such as sanding discs, pads, belts, and bristle type abrasives.
