COLORTREND® 888/817 colorants are universal colorants designed to have broad compatibility in trade sales water-based and solvent based-paints, as well as other products listed below.This colorant is specifically formulated for use in volumetric color dispensing machines for retail store and in-plant volumetric tinting. They have been thoroughly tested in a variety of commercial color dispensing machines and were found to dispense with ease and accuracy. They are non-reactive with stainless steel and plastic materials used as component parts of these machines. Aluminum, aluminum ally and bimetallic color machines should be avoided since they cause electrolytic corrosion and flocculation of the colorant. The colorants are rigidly controlled and disperse easy and completely in most trade sales paint bases with few adjustments in formulation.
