About G3 and G2:
Carolina Color G3 can be used in almost any resin system and achieves 20% or more increased pigment loading levels in polyethylene and polypropylene—without compromising pigment dispersion. G3 offers formulations with 40-45% loading of dyes in HIPs, PET, Nylon, Crystal Styrene and Acrylic and formulations with 50% or more pearlescent pigment, nearly doubling the former industry standard of 30%.
Key attributes of patented G2 from Carolina Color include up to 30 percent cost-to-color reduction, highest pigment loaded custom colors in the industry, the highest UV custom colors in the industry, and most importantly—1-10 percent cycle-time reduction.
