Each color has a different cost because the pigments have different costs. 

If you are looking at a Pantone color formula guide, the gloss level of polyethylene film will look like the “C” or coated version.  ” U ” implies an uncoated surface.  The color is the same either as U or C.  

Here is a link to our video about colored plastic films.

Making pigmented LDPE films is more complicated than PVC which is known as “dry” color defined as adding powdered pigment to the other powdered mystery ingredients.  

The pigment must be compounded usually at 50% with a “carrier” resin.  Carrier resins have much less viscosity than the base resin for film, causing the pigment to disperse homogenously in the extrusion process.  This is a necessary step for not only the blown film industry.  What is known as color concentrate or masterbatch is a big market which serves blow molding, injection molding and fiber.  Here are links to some of the major players:

Ampacet

Standridge

Techmer

Colored plastic films are available in tint or opaque.  The amount of pigment is defined in terms of opacity.

We can match any Pantone or custom color. The approval process requires time.  See our page on our product development process.
