Penn Color, a leading global manufacturer of color concentrates, masterbatches and pigment dispersions in the world, announces the launch of Pennacle-L, the first ever liquid colorant to join the Pennacle®PET line of products.
The official launch date for Pennacle-L is this September during the Drinktec fair in Munich.“Pennacle- L will offer an enhanced colorant option for those PET converters who prefer to use liquid colorants. Pennacle-L was specifically developed to overcome the traditional complications of using liquid colorants.
According to Scott Stamback, Business Director EU, Thermoplastics, “Pennacle-L was formulated with an advanced carrier technology that won’t burn or build-up on the injection molder screw or barrel and doesn’t generate screw slippage, which is typical with other liquid color systems.”
To guarantee highly consistent color, Pennacle-L has a best-in-class viscosity stability that, when paired with Penn Colors’ new gravimetric dosing system, ensures shot-to-shot dosing accuracy.
Clean-up is also improved with Pennacle-L as the formula is designed to use water as the wash medium, and will not foul conventional water treatment units.
In short, Pennacle-L will offer a highly economical and user friendly colorant solution for high volume beverage applications.
Penn Color is a leading manufacturer of color and additive concentrates, headquartered in Doylestown, Pennsylvania with manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Europe, India and sales offices in Asia.
