Albright Technologies has the ability to add color and tints to your silicone prototype and production parts. We provide our customers with liquid silicone coloring and tinting for their silicone parts on a daily basis. We have partnered with GSDI (formerly Gayson SDI) and Nusil Technology to provide colorants. In the silicone molding industry colorants are known as dispersions. In order to add color to your parts, we add dispersions before completing the static mixing stage. The normal amount of dispersion used is 2% by weight. When a color is chosen, the same silicone manufacturer must be used in order to maintain the same color from part to part. If a different silicone manufacturer is chosen during the life of the project, the color will change slightly, which is often not acceptable.
GSDI and Nusil Technology have partnered together to create a line of silicone masterbatches for medical applications that are customized to be used with Nusil's short term and long term implantable grade silicones. In long term implantable silicone parts, the dispersion has to be a long term implantable colorant as well. We utilize Nusil Silicone Technology for long term implantable dispersions.
Please visit GSDI to view 40 standard silicone colors that are always in stock. GSDI also has the capability to provide color matching (Pantone, PMS colors and others) if you have a color in mind. If you are in need of a certain liquid silicone color for your parts, please request assistance from our sales department at 978.466.5870 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
