46 • June 2018 INNOVATIONS REPORT CONCRETE MASONRY Solomon Colors recently commenced full-scale ColorFlo SG Granular Pigment production at its Illinois headquarters. Using an innovative, patented process, it produces granular pigment that meets or exceeds the color development, flowability, dispersion, and dusting properties of other granular pigments in low and high slump applications, product developers contend. Unique granulation methods and high produc- tion tolerances, they add, make ColorFlo SG Granular well suited to manufactured concrete products or ready mixed. Solomon Colors developed the unique pro- cess for ColorFlo SG over a five-year period, with an additional year spent building the manufac- turing facility and running production trials. The process yields a granular pigment that is readily dispensed by all major color systems for block & paver plants, as well as Solomon Colors' own systems. As one of the few color providers self-producing granules in North America, com- pany officials note, Solomon Colors is uniquely able to readily meet demands of all sizes with consistent, domestically processed product. — Solomon Colors Inc., Springfield, Ill., 217/523- 3204; Solomon secures pigment process patent, brings granule production in house Solomon Colors engineered the granulator, shown here at the Illinois flagship plant, and landed a patent for the ColorFlo SG process. As with other manufactured or ready mixed concrete offerings, the company tailors systems for ColorFlo SG dispensing. PHOTOS: Concrete Products
