Tremco Commercial Sealants & Waterproofing introduced Custom Colors on Demand for Vulkem® 351 (LV) Pedestrian Topcoat, a program that offers reduced lead times and color consistency while eliminating restrictive minimums for custom-tinted orders, the company says.

With the program, a neutral base color can be made and stored at the manufacturing plant, and quantities as small as a five-gallon pail can be color tinted at the time of order placement. As a result, a customer can receive the order at the distributor location within five to seven days after color-match approval.

The company says a new color dispensing system allows the neutral base to be color tinted with precision to match color formulas that were developed in the color laboratory. A technologically advanced color computer ensures the color accuracy of the dispenser and checks it to the approved standard provided by the customer. The color computer measures the overall color difference – Delta E, and can compute a paste formula adjustment for a batch that is out of color specification, ensuring that the difference in color from pail to pail is always a Delta E measurement less than 1. (A less than 1 measurement means any difference in color is virtually imperceptible to the human eye.)
