OnColor™ NIR Sortable Colorants

Enable Black and Dark Packaging to be Detected and Sorted for Recycling

OnColor™ NIR Sortable Black and Dark Colorants promote the correct sorting and recycling of dark polymers. This solution permits black and dark color polymers to be detected by near-infrared (NIR) automatic sorting equipment, enabling subsequent recycling. OnColor NIR sortable colorants are available in a range of dark tones, including blacks, and can also be customized to support the needs of brand owners, allowing dark packaging to remain an option for current products.
