New Color Concentrates for Injection and Rotational Molding Yield Distinctive 'Sparkle' Effect to Enhance Consumer Appeal

StarDust™ Concentrates from Teknor Apex Are Available in Pellet and Dry-Color Powder Forms and Are the First Sparkle Colorants Formulated for Rotomolding

PAWTUCKET, RI, U.S.A., March 20, 2019: A new series of color concentrates from Teknor Apex Company yields a sparkling effect produced by glinting flakes within the color itself, providing merchandizers with a new option for product differentiation that is distinctive and even fun.  

StarDust™ concentrates are available in all standard colors and are supplied in pellet form for injection molding and as powdered dry color for rotational molding. The powder form is the first sparkle-effect rotomolding colorant.

Teknor Apex recommends StarDust concentrates for consumer products such as toys, housewares, dust bins, waste bins, storage bins, and other items where shelf appeal or visual enjoyment are key values. Rotomolding applications include kayaks, outdoor furniture, coolers, and sporting equipment. 

“StarDust concentrates provide an enjoyable sparkle that helps manufacturers strengthen brand identity, enhance shelf appeal, or simply add aesthetic value to otherwise utilitarian objects,” said John Wood, technical director of the Color Division of Teknor Apex.
