Plastic Q&A - Common questions about plastic
We recieve a lot of questions about plastic and how we produce plastic profiles. Here we have answered some of the most common question. If you have further questions, you are welcome to contact us.
What colours do you extrude? add
We can produce plastic profiles in any colour you wish. If the colour can be described on the RAL (Reichs-Ausschuß für Lieferbedingungen und Gütesicherung) - colour chart, it can be extruded. Often our customers have an existing profile or another physical item with a specific colour. In such a case, we use spectrometer technology to identify the precise colour. The process is so accurate that we usually get the right colour the first time.
At Primo, we most often use masterbatches with concentrated colour pigment. The masterbatch is mixed into the colour neutral polymer raw material. This is an economical method and secures a very accurate result.
Colours in plastic for indoor use are very durable, but for outside UV-photodegradation can be a problem for all colours, except for black and white. To counteract this, a different coating can be applied to the profile.
