We Know Color

The Riverdale legacy dates back to the early 1900s as a supplier of dyes and industrial chemicals, and we first supplied liquid color to the plastic industry in 1966. This means 50 plus years of experience go into our engineered formulas for color and additives provided today! As a result, we can deliver the highest quality color and additive solutions that are compatible with multiple resins, effective in various applications, and offer a longer shelf life.
MILLED TO THE MAX™
To achieve the highest quality colors, we blend our colors from pre‑milled single pigment dispersions (SPDs), which is one more step of milling from the industry standard. Riverdale has made color this way for more than 30 years. Colors blended from SPDs are stronger, brighter, and assure consistent quality for better repeatability and performance.
WORLD WIDE QUALITY
SPDs are quality controlled to assure uniform blends worldwide. Produced at one location from "single source" pigments, then shipped worldwide to our blending satellites, SPDs allow us to provide colors that are consistent and repeatable regardless of a customer's plant locations. "Single Source" pigments ensure the identical color can be reproduced anywhere in the world.
Riverdale offers hundreds of pigments as well as multiple carrier systems, including natural carrier systems without petroleum. We will select the best pigment and carrier system for your process and application. No one offers a wider choice of solutions for your process demands.
CUSTOM COLOR
Custom formulas are our specialty. Riverdale Global provides advanced custom color and additive development for your products. Our highly experienced color design specialists will work closely with you and your team to achieve the result you desire. Custom effects give your product a unique brand identity. Visual effects can include pearlescent, fluorescent, and metallic.

We Solve Problems

+GlobalPlus™ additives are provided in liquid form which economically adds performance, protection and sustainability to your product. We can pre‑blend additives with your color, or supply for you to use separately. Pre‑blending the additives with your color assures they are metered into the process at correct rates. If you see the color, you know the additives are in the product.
Our +GlobalPlus™ additives allow for low and precise metering rates, improved dispersion, all while satisfying your sustainable objectives. These include less resin per part, better product recyclability, and energy savings.
+GlobalPlus™ additives can also be used to improve your manufacturing process. They can speed up cycle time, remove sink marks, as well as make part assembly easier.
