How to select a Pigment for Injection Molding applications!
Join us on October 14th (9:00 AM EST) as our Field Chemist, Lucy Gibbons, delves into a colorful overview of which pigments are suitable for injection molding, including how to select the right ones and why. This webinar will also highlight the effects of heat stability and warpage on the end product, due to the pigment choice. Panelists who will also be able to provide insight on the topic include Frank Lavieri, Curtis Ross, and Nigel Smith.
Lucy Gibbons holds a Bachelors degree in Applied Chemistry, specializing in color chemistry from the University of Leeds, UK. During her 11 years with DCL, she has gained an extensive background in pigments for plastics, coatings, and ink applications, from working in the lab and directly with customers around the world.
Lucy has put together a short sneak-peek video for all of you interested in how to select pigments for injection molding application. Click on the video below to hear what she has to say!
Introducing our NEW Lead Chrome Alternative Brochure
DCL offers a broad range of Lead Chromate and Moly Orange Alternatives referred to as ‘LCAs’. Should regulatory concerns or requirements prompt you to consider alternatives you may find this information to be very helpful. While no one pigment or combination of pigments can replace the performance of Lead Chromates and Moly Oranges in all applications, DCL has the broadest range of LCA’s to help with your replacement needs in specific applications.
The key advantages of DCL LCA’s:
- Replacements for Lead Chromate & Moly Oranges – application specific
- Ease of Use – match for masstone color and opacity
- Minimal formulation required
DCL was deemed an essential service and we continue to operate even where lockdown measures have been reimplemented. Our team continues to actively monitor the global pandemic. Our plants remain fully operational, as we have continued to do throughout the pandemic.
We are committed to ensuring the safety of our employees while working towards mitigating any possible impact to the supply chain. We are dedicated to supporting you and your business in the best way possible throughout this challenging situation. Please feel free to contact us if you have any specific questions.
Thank you for your continued business with DCL Corporation.
