From local service to developing technologies for your needs,
customer service is a top priority for Riverdale Global.
Our Sealed Color Technology™ not only provides the highest quality color and additive products
but it can also improve your process.
Faster color changes, solving dispersion issues, utilizing less energy,
eliminating downtime to change out buckets, using 100 percent of your color,
and reducing the need for premixers are all examples of process improvements experienced by our customers.
Sealed Color Technology™
is the most economical method of coloring plastics.
Riverdale Global's proprietary, Sealed Color Technology™ in milling, metering, and maintaining color
brings our customers all the savings and sustainability benefits of liquid without the mess.
Liquid provides higher color loading, improved recyclability, faster cycle times, less torque, lower temperatures, energy savings,
and reduced warehouse space. We also offer a proprietary blend of natural carriers.
Riverdale Global provides many color metering options to meet your process needs.
Riverdale provides gravimetric metering for all liquid color customers.
Gravimetric control is the only proven way to assure metering accuracy, reduce color usage and lower your cost of coloring.
Volumetric metering systems often over‑dispense expensive color. Losses are substantial. To provide the accuracy required,
Riverdale provides, as standard, its proprietary, and patented gravimetric metering system,
manufactured exclusively for Riverdale by Maguire Products.
RETURN FOR REFILL™
We provide a sustainable, RETURN for REFILL™ service for empty containers when an order is placed for the same color.
Color remaining in an "empty" container is returned to you with each refill.
You save when every drop is used. Containers no longer go to your local landfill,
helping you achieve your goal of Zero Waste. "Gaylord" style containers are eliminated.
Obsolete colors may be returned to Riverdale Global, which we then direct to an EPA approved disposal facility.
There is no mark up for this service; it is available at the cost charged by the outside facility. Quotes upon request.
We can provide color on demand through our dynamic system and satellite network
to meet both global and local needs for service and quality.
We can also easily bring our technology to you by setting up a plant satellite
and also during any trial with our Global Express Trial Unit™, which is the fastest method from sample to production.

CUSTOMER COLOR DEVELOPMENT LAB
Riverdale Global has a Color Development Lab that is conveniently located near the center of the NY metro area in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.
Our facility is only a couple of blocks from the train station allowing for easy accessibility to and from Manhattan
as well as the Newark International Airport. Our Color Development Lab provides an opportunity for customers
to work closely with our color matching team on site to create and customize their matches as they see fit.
This direct approach can help to expedite the matching process by eliminating the traditional back and forth
that comes with initiating a color match and can lead to much faster match approvals.
Additionally, our Color Development Lab has two visitor lounges with WiFi capabilities
where customers can work or relax while their matches are being completed.
Our objective is to provide a productive space for our customers to match their colors in the most timely fashion possible.
