How to Optimize Your Coloring Process_Step 1-1Colorant Application Rates
  • Verify your colorant application rates are still in place
  • Check if your production rate has changed (production rate directly affects per-yard application rate)
  • Check your hoses for wear or cracks
How to Optimize Your Coloring Process_Step 2-1Water Use Rates - Water is the driver of coverage
  • Too much water can lead to longer drying or curing time which could lead to "spring wash"
  • Be sure to check if the correct amount of water is being used
How to Optimize Your Coloring Process_Step 3-1Raw Material
  • Confirm your raw material didn't change in size or shade
  • Finished product shade is directly related to raw material shade
  • Higher percentage of fines can affect water use rates and amount of colorant needed
