Colours for the Circular Economy

Sustainability of Polymer and Colour

Solutions for Recycling and Biopolymers

The paradigm shift from a linear economy to a circular economy is leading to a rethink in the plastics industry. New challenges such as the use of recyclates, recycling quotas, increasing regulations from the REACH Commission, and the expansion of biopolymers make colour formulations very complex.

Circular Design of Polymers from Scratch

With "Design for Recycling" (D4R), the focus is on the value and sustainability of polymers and colour. Our broad product portfolio includes numerous solutions to make the future of plastics not only colourful but also sustainable. We assist you in making your products future-proof, resource-efficient, and sustainable for a circular economy.

Eternity Colours

In our concept of Eternity Colours, we translate the inspiration of colours from nature and the environment into the world of polymers.

Additionally, we assess available colourants for their recyclability.

We at Lifocolor develop our formulas so that they ideally support the utilisation phase as well as the after-use process.

Irrespective of whether we are working with virgin polymers, PCR, PIR or even biopolymers.

Reused Polymers | Lifocolor
Solutions for Recyclates

Our portfolio for reused polymers supports processors make plastic components recyclable.

This includes suitable colour and additive masterbatches that ensure sortability or counteract degradation processes in the recycling process.

Our solutions are suitable for products with a high recyclate content of up to 100 per cent.

Biopolymers | Lifocolor
Solutions for Biopolymers

Bioplastics or biopolymers are playing an increasingly significant role against the background of avoiding fossil raw materials.

Higher requirements for colourant selection are imposed on the bioplastics cycle.

Especially when the cycle ends with composting.

Depending on your needs, our experts develop suitable solutions for numerous biopolymers for colouring and functionalization.
