Case Study

Case Study: Penn Color

Source: X-Rite, Inc.

To give these manufacturers a means of controlling color precisely and reducing downtime on the shop floor, Penn Color Inc. has developed a resin-based family of colorants for PET (polyethylene terephthalate) that improves on wax-based and liquid colorants that may cause color variations, jam feeding mechanisms, or cause screws to slip in molding machines.

But even with the best selection of colorants, Penn Color recognized that it needed a system that could define and identify color exactly for its customers. For assistance in the language of color, the Doylestown, PA.-based company chose X-Rite Inc. as its partner in this critical function.
