The SIMALFA line of water based adhesives is available in a variety of standard color options, depending on the formulation. We offer these choices to help our clients fill a specific need in regards to application and process. Some clients like to be able to see the adhesive being applied, some don't.
We also have the capability of producing adhesive with a custom color if one of our standard options is not ideal for a clients' application. Since food coloring is exclusively used in our formulations, we have the ability to match almost any color while at the same time keep with our policy of not using harmful dyes.
Color - whether a custom color is required for matching a substrate or just as a visual aid, we work closely with each client for a unique result that's repeatable.
Adhesive Volume - a custom color is best suited for a client who is able to commit to and use a small batch of 2000kgs or 500 gallons within the specified shelf life of the product. The color is added early in the manufacturing process as the volume of color is quite small in relation to the overall batch. It must be evenly distributed to ensure consistency and therefore creates some limitations with the manufacturing equipment.
