Color Palettes produce random flow of color effects.

By infusing color at random into injection-molded PP parts, FusionFx ensures that finished products are consistent, but never look exactly alike. Carnival combines brightly colored confetti with use of explosive accents, while Cork imbues products with look of natural wood elements. CamouflageÂ- provides nature-mimicking effects, and GeoClassics uses look of granite, concrete, and quartz to...

Chrome Masterbatch creates mirror-like effect for plastics.
Paints & Coatings

Chrome Masterbatch creates mirror-like effect for plastics.

Intended for use with molded plastic components, UltraChrome requires single-step molding process that eliminates VOC and carbon emissions that occur in secondary painting operations. Reflective properties will not chip or scratch off, and molding throughout part ensures piece-to-piece uniformity. Used with polyolefins and various engineered resins, product is dispersed throughout part so that...

UV Absorber Masterbatch targets polyolefin film packages.

Designed for thin gauge films, UVA masterbatch protects packaged contents from UV light damage. Product screens UV wavelengths from 280-380 nm and also optimizes seal strength and print/lamination adhesion. It mitigates plate-out on processing equipment and reduces occurrence of white residue on packages. All ingredients are cleared by FDA for use in olefin polymers and copolymers complying with...

PET UV Additive offers UVA protection with non-yellowing clarity.

CrystalClear PET UV additive masterbatch permits bottle molders and sheet processers to produce clear, non-yellowed packages with UV protection to preserve product integrity, color, flavor, and nutrition. Offering protection up to 380 nm, it is recommended with LDR of 0.5-1% for use in standard bottle applications. Product is FDA-approved and will not contribute to plate-out issues during molding.

Masterbatches give PET bottles frosted-glass look.
Materials

Masterbatches give PET bottles frosted-glass look.

Available in series of low luster grades, Frosted Masterbatches give bottles matte finish that creates similarity to etched glass for use with cosmetics, alcohol, and high-end beverages. They are added during extrusion process, eliminating need for spray painting. Masterbatches are built around Formula X(TM) PET technology, which eliminates need for pre-drying and allows feeding at extruder...

Masterbatch gives PET bottles hint of blue at edges.

Masterbatch gives PET bottles hint of blue at edges.

Blue Edge(TM) imbues clear PET bottles with blue halo around their periphery while enhancing bottle brightness and providing soft glow in ultraviolet light. Since its impact is not based on pigment, product does not hinder light transmission; product visibility remains unchanged. Applications include bottles used for clear products such as water, liquor, and other beverages as well as cosmetics...
