Carolina Color Corporation announces that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will issue a patent to Carolina Color on May 15, 2018 for its G3 color pellet technology for plastic processors. G3 has proven to be effective in diverse applications such as Packaging, Housewares, Lawn & Garden and More.

“G3 is a great example of Carolina Color’s ability to create truly disruptive technologies providing our customers with genuine competitive advantages and the reason we were granted a patent for this technology,” stated Jeff Smink, Chief Operating Officer of Carolina Color Corporation. “We anticipate continued growth of this G3 technology moving forward into 2019.”

Key attributes of the G3 technology include:

  1. Its versatility in just about any resin system
  2. Achieving 20 percent or more increased pigment loading levels in polyethylene and polypropylene—without compromising pigment dispersion
  3. Obtaining formulations with 40-45 percent loading of dyes in HIPs, PET, Nylon, Crystal Styrene and Acrylic
  4. Providing formulations with 50 percent or more pearlescent pigment, nearly doubling the former industry standard of 30 percent.

Carolina Color’s North Carolina and Ohio locations provide customers with full-service production capabilities and complete laboratories for color matching, testing, and analytics. The company’s core strength comes from its ability to innovate as well as maintain strong relationships with the finest suppliers of resins, pigments, dyes and additives.
