A colour concentration is a concentrated kind of colour that is applied to various materials to give them a particular hue. It is also referred to as a colourant or pigment concentrate. It is frequently employed in the plastics, coatings, textiles, and printing industries.
In order to make a highly concentrated colourant, colour concentrates are made by mixing pigments or dyes with a carrier or binder material. Compared to using pure raw pigments or dyes, this concentrated version is simpler to handle, store, and dose.
In colour concentrates, the carrier material might take the shape of a solid (like a wax or polymer pellet) or a liquid (like a polymer resin). The application and compatibility with the target material influence the choice of carrier material.
To satisfy particular needs, a variety of colours and tints of colour concentrates are offered. They might be specially created to adhere to a customer's preferences or certain colour requirements.
It's crucial to adhere to the manufacturer's recommendations for handling, blending, and compatibility with the target material when utilising colour concentrates.
