Custom Compounding

One of the most difficult challenges involved in compounding is creating a product that performs consistently in a variety of conditions.  Our seasoned technicians work with you to determine the best additives for your resin base, budget and application to create the most stable and high-quality product possible.  The addition of compounds through mixing and extrusion improves the characteristics of base resins and enhances stability and the likelihood of achieving pristine color in various extremes.

General Color’s custom compounding offers consistent color, fire resistance, UV stability, strength, flexibility and durability, and more. Our lab has the ability to collaborate with customers for unique custom compounding blends and needs for projects in injection molding, blow molding and extrusion. And, there’s no need to worry about minimum orders required by larger companies. We have you covered.
