MORE ABOUT COLOUR
The production vinyl compound is a Polyvinyl chloride acetate (PVCA) made in house at the plant, a special award-winning formula of raw materials. The base material used is a powdered copolymer of vinyl chloride and vinyl acetate which is mixed in a fluid mixer with some additives such as stabilizers and lubricants.
Classic black records are made from a special black carbon, while coloured records are produced using basic colours. The plant also mix several varieties of basic dyes or pigments to create some colours.
Please be aware of potential audio problems when ordering #15 Heart of Glass (ultra clear), #17 Slade Boot Silver and #18 Gold Digger. There is a risk that problems, such as audible clicks, will be present on the final pressed vinyl (even if not present on test pressings, as TPs are supplied on the black vinyl compound only). The reason for this is down to the compound material of these colours. Much of the time these issues can be disguised by the music, but we cannot guarantee this until the records are actually pressed. It is a small risk but can happen and it is your risk to take.
Sadly, there can always be audible issues on coloured vinyl with effects. Compared to black and frosted clear vinyl the colour compounds do have a degrading effect on audio quality and effects can cause audible clicks or pops and added hiss/surface noise. Sometimes it can be the specific combination of certain colours and effects that cause issues and it is not possible for us to know until the records are actually pressed, unless we have done that specific combination before.
Because of the nature of coloured vinyl compounds homogenous or heterogeneous structure, in cases of multicoloured configurations the combinations of different types of coloured compound can mean the audio quality may be affected in random and unpredictable ways, this may also vary across an entire run.
