Colour and additive manufacturer Prisma Colour has completed its acquisition of two businesses, Emsar Polymers and Adam Polymer.

The Glossop-based Prisma, which also supplies concentrates to the rubber, plastics and surface coatings industry, said the strategic acquisition “brings together three innovative companies with complementary capabilities, product portfolios and operations”.

Cheshire-based Emsar Polymers, a supplier of additive masterbatches, will retain its brand and trading name, while Bredbury-based Adam Polymer, a rubber chemical manufacturer and supplier, will take on a new identity as Prisma Additives, retaining all existing staff.

Prisma Colour sales director Mark Wood, said: “As a company with active sales to over 40 countries we are always looking to add to our already diverse product offering.

“The two recent acquisitions allow us to offer new products through our existing distribution networks, resulting in a stronger Prisma Colour which is well positioned to excel in an evolving global marketplace.”

Following the completion of the acquisitions, Prisma has installed a 2000 tonnes per annum mixing and compounding line at its Stalybridge site, which will be dedicated to the manufacture of additive masterbatch.

 


Prisma Colour is pleased to introduce Jason Forder as our new Technical Sales Executive. Jason joins the sales department after almost 5 years working in the Prisma Colour laboratory. In this new position as well as sales he will also be responsible for marketing through the use of social media and the Prisma Colour website.

Jason has recently completed a master’s degree in Polymer Science and Technology from Loughborough University and says he “is looking forward to putting his newfound knowledge to the test in this new role.”

Sales director Mark Wood said “This is a new position which came about due to Prisma’s continued growth and expansion. Jason’s appointment reflects our desire to promote from within whenever possible and I wish him good luck with his new job.”

Please join us in congratulating Jason on his promotion and in wishing him continued success at Prisma Colour.

 

Prisma Colour – a leading supplier of colouring solutions to the UK plastics industry – has developed a range of innovative masterbatches for use in PET extrusion and injection stretch blow moulding.

The unique, concentrated mixture of pigments and additives have been designed specifically for the production of PET bottles commonly used for water, juice and a variety of other products.

The masterbatch is available in a micro pellet form with a tailor-made polyester carrier system. It also has the option of including additives to improve distribution of colourants and reduce visible white streaks in mouldings.

In addition, the innovative range of masterbatches are available in transparent tints, with a frosted effect offering a similar appearance to a HDPE blown bottle whilst retaining transparency at the neck.

Mark Wood, Sales Director at Prisma Colour, commented: “The development of our innovative masterbatches follow improvements in engineering and product technology, which have created a number of options to find solutions for some of the most demanding packaging applications. These provide processors with even greater flexibility when colouring raw polymer economically during the plastics manufacturing process – creating a cost-effective solution to meet most performance or technical requirements.”

The UK-based company is now consolidating its presence in the Italian market, following strong performances in Poland, Scandinavia and Germany.

Prisma Colour, which is firmly established in over 30 countries, expects to continue with its current double-digit growth rate – a rate the company has achieved for the last six years.

Following the company’s recent visit to Milan Plast, Prisma Colour has secured significant new orders from manufacturing customers in Italy.

Mark Wood and Joanne Gough, Prisma Colour’s Sales Director and Technical Manager, represented Prisma Colour at the trade show at the stand of the company’s Italian distributor Eigenmann & Veronelli.

Tim Johnson, Managing Director of Prisma Colour, commented: “The Prismagum range of rubber colouring products performed strongly at the show, as did Prisma Colour’s silicone-colouring range, Prismasil.

“The improving Italian manufacturing sector means that manufacturers are requiring advanced colouring solutions, in order to give them a competitive edge.

“Prisma Colour is benefiting from the growing Italian market, just as we are with our other markets across Europe. We are committed to working with our clients to ensure that they are provided with the best solution and the best service,” added Mr. Johnson.

Accurate Colour Design

On March 2, 2015, in Company News, by admin

At Prisma Colour we take time to consider all of our customers’ needs and requirements when selecting pigments for a new colour match request.
Involved in this are a large number of variables that have to be taken into account depending on the type of polymer:

  • Aesthetics of the finished article
  • Expected life time of the application
  • Processing conditions

With this in mind we have put together a short list of things that must be considered when designing a formulation:

  • Differences in base polymer.
  • Melt flow characteristics.
  • Toxicity requirements.
  • Physical properties required of the moulding.
  • Light fastness of the finished product.
  • Heat histories of the finished article.
  • Accurate let down ratio.
  • Pigment loading/colour strength.
  • Cost consideration.
  • Weather fastness of the finished article.
  • Warping, distortion and shrinkage.
  • Chemical Stability

All of these elements have to be looked at closely to get a good, accurate and cost effective colour match for the customer. We pride ourselves on bringing technical solutions to the masterbatch industry and building confident long standing relationships with our customers through quality assured service levels.
