ColorMatrix is the world’s largest supplier of additive technologies for PET containers and of liquid colour for thermoplastics applications, including plastic packaging.
As global innovators of advanced liquid colorants, additives and dosing systems, our technologies play an important role in enhancing the performance and aesthetics of plastic packaging as well as protecting the products they contain. With sustainability high on our agenda, our technologies are engineered to ensure clean, highly productive, energy efficient processing.
Amosorb® active oxygen scavengers enable reduction of O2 ingress through container walls, preserving the shelf life of the packaged product.
Triple A™ acetaldehyde (AA) reducers enable the control of AA in PET bottles for sensitive applications, preserving both the taste of the packaged product and brand equity. AA levels can be reduced by up to 80%.
Ultimate™ UV and colours provide tailored protection to the package content through UV and the visible spectrum. This preserves the taste, vitamin content, colour and viscosity of the packaged product.
Eze™ slip agents reduce friction across moulding processes and support static charge dissipation, allowing for faster production cycles and better part performance.
Joule™ reheat agents improve the rate of heat up-take in preforms during the secondary blowing process, allowing for faster production cycles and energy savings.
Optica™ optical toners and brighteners control yellowing of virgin and recycled resin.
ColorMatrix transparent, opaque and translucent colorants enable brand differentiation and protection of the packaged product.
Our packaging improvement technologies are used by many of the world’s major plastic container producers in the following markets:
ColorMatrix are also a major supplier for caps and closure systems.
Since 1972 ColorMatrix has grown by continually developing appropriate technologies that help drive its markets forward. We now employ over 350 people globally from our facilities in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Our total package approach makes us the industry’s lowest total-cost-in-use supplier.
