Live Webinar: Cut Your Colour Costs in Half with Riverdale Global

Join Paul Edmondson and John Goulbourn of Riverdale Global on Tuesday 16th March for a free online webinar to discover novel solutions in the field of colour and additives, which will bring cost savings to plastics processors.

Optimising recycled material content in your process can be a challenge, but there is a proven colour and additive package which makes it possible whilst also cutting colouring costs in half. Register for this free webinar here.

Riverdale Global is a specialist in liquid colour and additives and has been supplying the plastics industry with colour solutions since 1966. With over 50 years of liquid colour experience, Riverdale’s engineered formulas for colour and additives deliver the highest quality results, are compatible with multiple resins, effective in various applications, and offer a long shelf-life.

Liquid colour was once regarded as a messy alternative to pelletised masterbatch, but the unique Riverdale Gravimetric System (RGS) changes this outdated perception. The RGS is a closed-loop, sealed drum system designed to eliminate mess and spillage, allowing plastic processors to take full advantage of the benefits of liquid colour whilst removing the traditional drawbacks associated with its use.

See the image below for a summary of the benefits a liquid colour system brings to plastics processors:

Liquid Colour Benefits

As well as processing advantages, Riverdale’s colour system’s other significant benefits are the environmental considerations, which are growing to be an essential concern for all plastics manufacturers.

Liquid colour allows you to use less pigment due to better colour dispersion, less energy due to a lower melt temperature, and creates less waste for landfill, due to purging waste reductions, as well as Riverdale Global’s ‘Return for Refill’ scheme. Landfill waste is reduced as empty containers are returned to Riverdale for a refill, helping companies towards a goal of zero waste.

Join Paul and John on Tuesday 16th March to learn more about how Riverdale’s solutions can bring financial, processing and environmental benefits to your plastics business.

Using real UK & EU-based case studies to demonstrate these benefits in the following ways:

  • How an extrusion company using 100% regrind has dramatically improved processing whilst optimising their material blending requirements.
  • How extrusion processors have successfully increased production yield by 20% only by changing their colour supplier.
  • How processors of large injection moulded parts (with high recycled content) can cut their start-up scrap from 25 shots to just 5 by changing their colour and additive supplier.
  • How blow moulders with large accumulator heads have reduced start-up from 24 hours to 30 minutes by changing their colour and additive supplier.
  • How your colour costs can be cut in half.
  • How 1 pot colour and additive solutions can dramatically cut cost and complexity whilst increase the efficacy of active ingredients.
