OrcoPlast™ Solvent Dyes

OrcoPlast™ dyes are used extensively in many plastic coloration applications.   These highly-concentrated heat-stable colorants, available in powder form,  allow the formulator to use minimal amounts of dye thereby causing no change to the product’s original physical characteristics.  Plastics applications include SAN, ABS, PLA, PET, acrylic, polystyrenes, polycarbonates, nylon polyamides, and other polymers & resins .

FDA Approved21 CFR 178.3297

Actual dye or pigment 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.
