MagIQ™ Liquid Fiber Colorants

This breakthrough technology combines advanced liquid color formulations with state-of-the-art, high-pressure metering equipment to enable late-stage injection of liquid color for polyester melt spin coloring.

Liquid color is injected at high pressure into the polyester melt-flow between the end of the extruder, or melt-pipe, and the spin head. The extruder is never contaminated with color which translates into faster, more efficient color changeovers that make low volume and custom color production a reality. MagIQ Fiber Colorant Solutions can help you achieve the color precision and color fastness of conventional masterbatch spin coloring, while giving you the production flexibility of traditional aqueous dyeing.


  • Multiple color production: Several injection points can be added to enable multiple color production at the same time on a single extruder.
  • Batch size flexibility: Fiber producers can manufacture anything from a few kilograms to hundreds of tons using the same simple process.
  • Rapid color changes: No extruder contamination and easy color-on, color-off operation increases color change speed.
  • Waste reduction: Rapid color changes, precise metering and the ability to adjust color in-line reduces waste during color changeovers.
  • Color design service: PolyOne offers a dedicated color design service to help shorten product development cycles and enhance market agility.
