Specialty Toners for PC

SHENZEN, China – April 13, 2021 – Avient Corporation, a premier provider of specialized and sustainable material solutions and services, has unveiled its new liquid toner technology for polycarbonate (PC) resins, ColorMatrix™ Optica™ for PC. 

ColorMatrix Optica for PC toners offer exceptional visual clarity, color consistency, and color dispersion in transparent PC resins. They help to retain transparent properties, and can prevent undesirable color shifts toward yellows and greens. These new toners are formulated without heavy metal or restricted ingredients, and can be used at lower doses in comparison to alternatives like pigment and solid masterbatches.

“As an industry leader in solving complex material science problems, we are proud to bring this cutting-edge liquid color toner solution for polycarbonate to the market,” said Bob Lee, marketing director, Color & Additives Asia at Avient. “ColorMatrix Optica for PC builds on a proven portfolio of liquid toners, and meets the growing market need for a cost-effective solution.”

PC is a popular material for everything from automotive interiors and appliances to consumer goods and electronics, thanks to its versatile characteristics and recyclability. It can and often does replace more traditional construction materials, such as glass and acrylic, in applications where transparency and clarity are important.

Avient is advancing the performance and sustainability of plastics through innovation and collaboration, and will be exhibiting these capabilities at Chinaplas 2021 in hall 16, booth 16J41.
