Essential attributes for colorants for packaging 

We work in our laboratory so your products may have the packaging colorant that adjusts to your needs and projects as much as possible. That is why, we have a wide diversity of pigments and colorants ranges of European quality, which are valid to carry out the most demanding projects in all materials of the sector. 

Our experience working in the plastic packaging sector allowed us to innovate in our formulations to create customised and optimised masterbatch for products and manufacturing processes for plastic packaging. As experts in the sector, the majority of our manufactured products are tailor-made, and we also own a wide diversity of updated references in stock with high turnover. 

When manufacturing our masterbatch, we use the latest available technology for packaging, since our production plant is capable of producing over 1000 annual tons of colorant and additive masterbatch for plastic products. 

We have the proper means to create safe colorants and colour pigments for packaging that may pass the national and international standards of plastics in contact with food. Besides, we guarantee that our masterbatch for plastic does not affect the organoleptic properties of the packaging.
