From healthy living, to relaxation and mood-boosting, tea is both a growing market and a sensitive product that needs to be handled with care. The market for energy drinks and vitamin water show the same dynamics and the same requirements. Our packaging colorants make your brand stand out, and are available with and without light/ UV protection.
Freshly prepared fruit juices are about authentic taste and is the best that nature has to offer. Holland Colours offers a range of UV-protecting products and oxygen-barrier-neutral colorants to maintain your product’s integrity for longer.
Holland Colours is a leader in PET dairy packaging. Whether you want to enhance shelf life, promote a fresh, clean look or stand out on the shelf, we offer custom colors that help sell your product and provide outstanding protection of dairy.
Want to create, build or refresh a brand? How about swapping heavy glass for lighter, lower cost plastic? Or maybe you want a longer shelf life? Whether you need mono-layer barrier or multi-layer barrier, custom FDA-compliant colors and single or multi-serve containers – our laboratories have extensive experience in developing quality solutions for alcoholic drinks.
Liquor, like beer and wine, has its own special packaging requirements. Whether you need stock or custom FDA-compliant colors, we can help. Our barrier technology, shelf-life enhancement and mono/ multi-layer compatibility are just some of the reasons we're a trusted source for spirit packaging colorant. We can help maintain your current brand identity – or help create a new one.
Plastic packaging makes eating on-the-go convenient. Colored packaging is a brand differentiator and builds brand value. Our solutions reflect today’s trends: bright and sophisticated colors and metallic and pearlescent effects – with longer shelf life and all custom-made for an exact color match.
Packaging detergents in plastic offers multiple benefits. It’s the simplest way to make sure someone pours your product safely, while coloring the plastic is a great way to conceal the content and stand out on the shelf. Our products provide maximum opacity and the best color distribution for a great looking, even finish that helps build your brand. And if you want to use uncolored packaging, we can help you include UV protection in the plastic bottle, so protecting your formula’s color.
We can help you create standout PET packaging for ultra-demanding consumers. We work directly with you to develop custom colors and special effects that help create a unique identity. We offer pearlescent, metallic, opaque, transparent, translucent, fluorescent, matte frost, UV-absorbent and optical brightener – or a combination.
Tablets, pills, capsules, creams, lotions, ointments – the healthcare industry runs on high quality and strict performance and environmental requirements. Appealingly designed bottles, with colors that remain consistent between production runs, communicate brand quality and reliability.
Post-consumer recycled PET typically exhibit discoloration and inferior transparency compared to 100% virgin PET resin. Our TintMask products offset any yellow or green tint, and comply with EU and FDA directives. TintMask will not migrate or sublimate in a high vacuum process and can be used with flake and granular recycled PET.
You want to produce attractive PET packaging as efficiently and economically as possible. Our custom coloring solutions can help. Our carrier is derived from a non-food renewable resource, so contributing to our customers’ sustainability messaging and environmental performance targets. They are the most concentrated available, up to 85% loading. Our products use a unique to Holland Colours non-polymeric wax-based carrier – a ‘solid liquid.’ At room temperature, it’s a solid, but at production temperatures it immediately forms a liquid. Our solid-liquid colorants therefore combine the handling and storage advantages of masterbatch with the superior distribution of a liquid – without the downsides associated with either.
An optimized solid format enables the production of PET bottles with a consistently low acetaldehyde level. Benefits include easy dosing, lower dosing, better dispersion and so good distribution in the polymer matrix, no delamination, no sedimentation and low additional levels (Let Down Ratio).
PET’s outstanding clarity and favorable properties mean an increasing number of drink, cleaning and detergent products are being packaged in PET. Many of these products need to be protected against UV radiation. Holland Colours offers a series of UV absorbers for all kinds of UV-sensitive product formulations. We also have calculation models to determine dosing levels and the resulting additive cost.
Holcomer UHT is a customizable light barrier for monolayer PET packaging for UHT milk. Generating a great-looking white monolayer bottle that blocks 100% UV radiation and up to 99.9% of visible light, it preserves taste as well as multilayer and carton packaging while reducing production costs and waste. It also works on standard monolayer equipment, and bottles can be laser marked without it affecting the color in any way.
Our TintMask solution neutralizes the yellow or green tint that is common to recycled PET. Compliant with EU and FDA directives, TintMask products will not migrate or sublimate in a high vacuum process, and can be used with both flake and granular recycled PET. TintMask colorants can be dosed directly on-line at any stage in the recycling process stage.
PET bottle producers and end users have long wanted a product that would emulate the appearance and feel of frosted glass in PET. Our frosting agent can be dosed directly on-line, enabling PET bottle producers to achieve a frosted glass look without having to add spray or painting process steps. Gloss reductions of up to 60% have been achieved. Other benefits include softer textures and higher scuff and mar resistance.
The oxygen barrier provided by standard PET is not good enough for packaging beer, wine and other oxygen-sensitive drinks. This has led to the development of special barrier PET materials. However, when used in monolayer PET, colorants and additives may reduce the performance of these improved barrier systems. Stepping up to the challenge, Holland Colours developed and now offers a range of 'OXygeN' (OXN) colorant formulations that provide the optimum barrier performance in monolayer barrier PET.
Thanks to a lowered coefficient of friction, our slip additive both reduces the incidence of scuff marks and scratches on PET bottles, and increases the number of PET preforms that can be stored in an octabin by up to 10%. Dosing can be reduced by up to 50% versus alternatives, and our slip agent is compatible with most liquid additive/ colorant dosing systems.
