Colorants for Fertilizer and Agricultural Compounds

Dyes, pigment dispersions, and non-staining polymeric colorants for time-release fertilizer, coated urea fertilizer and non-staining colorants for plant food fertilizer are available in vivid and custom shades. Some colorants are appropriate for urease inhibitors, depending on the formulation.
Our colorants, dyes and pigments are designed to help you manufacture your product by providing the following performance advantages:
  • Perfect color selection providing the right color for your products.
  • Long-term color stability that resists fading or changing over time.
  • Ease of Manufacturing – Our high-quality liquid and powder colorants are always consistent.

To help you manufacture high-quality agricultural products, we can test the stability and suitability of our colorants in your product. Plus, we offer strong technical support, custom formulation and prompt shipping.

Non-Staining Colorants Used for Fertilizer

This is what one of our customers said about using non-staining colorants on fertilizer:

“We tested the non-staining colorants on one type of sulfur fertilizer that we manufacture.  They coated very well, cleaned up easily, and are quite user friendly! We like the blue and green the best so far.”

If your agricultural product or fertilizer contains pesticides such as fungicides and insecticides, contact us to speak with one of our technical sales representatives. You can also browse our pesticide colorants and seed coating colorants pages.

Did you know that products which contain certain plant growth regulators or hormones or make label claims to accelerate plant growth may be subject to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).  Chromatech has a variety of colorants designed to meet the requirements for FIFRA inert ingredients for both food use applications and non-food use applications. Consult our Pesticides color chart for recommendations.
