Color Resource, LLC Expanding its Concentrate Lines
Leominster, MA – Joining its existing lines of concentrates of PVC, PE, EVA, for Munsell, NEMA, SAE, and RAL concentrates, Color Resource, LLC (www.color-resource.com) is gearing up for more sales in the emerging low voltage, automotive, and appliance wire moisture cure XLPE cable market.
Being forward-thinking, Color Resource’s Greg Gitto saw the opportunity to answer to the growing number of complaints by wire and cable manufacturers of FR XLPE cables for XHHW type constructions including VW-1. Current commercial Munsell color concentrates produced cable colors that were always muted and pastel at best, especially in the higher FR blends.
As a result, Color Resource developed a specific line of highly loaded, vibrant colors that do not contribute to scorching of the XLPE compound, like standard colors do. Each concentrate is suitable and intended for the full range of FR blends in XLPE constructions from 80/20 to 50/50, using only 1 to 3 percent loadings.
“We have customers so happy with our line of XLPE colors that they are choosing to use it in place their standard PE concentrates to save time, shipping, and inventory costs,” says Gitto. “Besides providing the obvious color our clients need, these XLPE colors are providing an economic solution in other ways.”
Further setting itself apart in the concentrates industry, Color Resource XLPE colors offer high-quality features none of its competitors can touch.
As a result, Color Resource not only stocks colors for moisture cure crossed-linked polyethylene compounds, but also continues to stand by what they are best known for – offering PVC, PE, and EVA custom colors with a maximum one week turn-around for new and existing customers, even for XLPE.
