LEDA® compounded color technology integrates colorants and additives directly into the thermoplastic pellets resulting in consistent, molded-in colors and effects. You can choose existing colors from Bayer’s broad color palette or design a custom-made color. LEDA® technology possible effects include glow-in-the-dark, sparkle and metallic. Certain colors and special effects are compliant with regulations for FDA food contact and medical device applications.
AURA® infusion technology enables manufacturers to apply color to one or many already-molded clear, translucent or opaque parts. Since AURA® infusion technology can be performed in-house, you are able to control the speed and production process to meet your needs.
