Building and Construction
With revolutionary flexibility, durability and customisability, plastics have opened a world of possibility in construction.
Colloids is the global leader of black and colour masterbatches to the polyolefin industry for PE80 and PE100 pipe compounds.Read more
For the transport of gas and drinking water under pressure, our PE80 and PE100 compounds are designed to produce pipes for a guaranteed lifetime of over 50 years at maximum rated pressure.
Our products provide stress crack resistance, resistance to rapid crack propagation, creep resistance and long-term strength, and are classified and tested according to ISO 4427 and EN 12201 for drinking water application or ISO 4437 and EN 1555 for gas application.
Polymers are the ideal materials for drainage pipes and conduits in construction, communications, municipal and industrial applications. Non-pressure pipes can also be made from recovered and recycled materials, lowering waste and costs.Read more
Our additives and masterbatch provide exacting performance to meet all regulations and customer goals, including flexural modulus, creep and crack resistance, abrasion resistance and friction.
Artificial turf can be used for landscaping or sports surfaces. Perfect for open or undercover stadiums, artificial turf is durable and long lasting. Sports pitches can be designed for playing football, rugby, hockey, and many other sports.Read more
With low maintenance costs and the ability to choose a vast array of colour shades, not just green, it’s becoming ever more popular. Colloids is proud to be a leading supplier of masterbatch for artificial grasses. Colloids masterbatches are formulated to give excellent mechanical properties, UV stability and consistent batch to batch colour.
Geosynthetics are recognised as an essential tool to the development of sustainable infrastructure, with knock-on benefits in economic development, social development and environmental protection.Read more
Phenomenal advances have been made in the materials, manufacturing and application of geosynthetics, ensuring better performance of the structures and reduced long-term maintenance. The polymer and masterbatch system used is critical to the performance, reliability and long-term sustainability of products. Colloids is a long-standing supplier to the geosynthetic industry and has a broad range of colour and black masterbatches that ensure adherence to international standards.
