PCC opens clean compounding plant
Plastics Color Corp. (PCC), a polymer solutions provider and supplier of color concentrates, pre-colored resins and additive masterbatches for the plastics industry, has announced the opening of its new clean compounding facility in Southern California. Modeled after PCC’s “Plant-Within-a-Plant” concept operating at PCC’s Asheboro, North Carolina campus since 2009, the California operation was designed to address risk mitigation.  The plant operates in a clean environment where special measures have been taken to guarantee clean compounding. Water curtain air filters remove particulates from the plant’s air supply. The air is cycled every four to five minutes through this system. The water for the strand cooling baths passes through a 5 micron filter and U.V. lights that destroy 100 percent of all microbes, providing a clean product for medical and food use.
