Our Colours... Your Way!  

Due to our in house expertise, we not only provide support when sampling a material, but we are with you right from the start of your project.
From development, to sampling, to start up and scaling up for full scale production, we are with you every step of the way and our expertise will allow you to see how our colours will work in your finished product.

Our bespoke blends can deliver many time saving and cost effective benefits:
We recognise how difficult it can be to accurately gauge dosage levels, and errors can occur costing you time and money.
With this in mind we can offer a variety of solutions to help in your production, which will allow easy incorporation in production, to ensure ease of use in the finished product. 

We can offer liquid blending – this will be into a pre-dispersed medium of your choice such as glycerine or sugar syrup. This solution will provide ease of use and batch to batch colour consistency.

Our bespoke blends can also be provided in powder form. We are extremely accomplished in house at blending pigments. However we do not stop at blending colours, our proven track record shows that we also have the capability to incorporate other ingredients in line with your requirements.

Our capabilities and service extend well beyond this, and where required, we can offer microtesting or irradiation of materials. We are solution orientated and have proven time and time again that we offer a variety of benefits when supplying Our Colours…Your Way!
