Providing Custom Plastic Extruded Profiles In Many Colors
Sometimes, your product requires a certain look, and color can help you achieve your goal. Formtech provides custom plastic profiles in most colors. We work with our suppliers to develop custom color matches for your product. Formtech performs these custom color matches so that your extruded profile matches:
- A specific PMS color number
- A standard color chip (or color standard)
- A mating part
- The color of another product
We complete color matches during the development of your plastic profile or at any time during a product’s life cycle. After you request a color match, Formtech provides a lead time for samples and quote for your new-colored parts. We submit samples for your approval in the custom color chosen. This process allows our customers to see the product before we produce production-sized quantities.
After you approve the new color for production, Formtech continually monitors the color (and, if applicable, the gloss level) to ensure that the product meets your specifications. Formtech uses spectrophotometers and gloss meters at each manufacturing facility to check the color and gloss level during each production run. We record this information and maintain records, for future reference. Learn more about our quality assurance process.
If you desire a specific color but perhaps do not need an exact match, let us know! Formtech inventories a variety of colors that may work for your application, without going through the color match process.
