Addform was established in 2013 as a private company. Addform developed an advanced liquid colorant/additive system for use in plastics moulding, extrusion and compounding. The company's system includes material, equipment and service that are customised to achieve the highest level of performance.
Addform offers a complete range of liquid colorants, formulated for use in their existing applications. The range includes transparent, translucent, opaque and effect colours.
Outside their established product range Addform offers over 1,700 transparent and opaque shades. To simplify the design process, Addform provides a selection tool that contains plastic 'chips' for all colours in the extended range. The tool allows customers and partners to view the appearance of colours in an actual polymer system. To meet customer specific requirements Addforms colour matching service can provide an optimum match to any target colour.
The additives offered by Addform includes UV Blockers and Slip/Anti-block for PET bottles and thermoformed packaging, Anti Yellow and IV Enhancers for recycled PET resins in bottle and thermoformed packaging and Foaming Agents used to reduce product density and improve performance in several key application areas.

- Control interfaces
