The line includes 6 base colors (brass, chrome, copper, black onyx, graphite, and gun metal blue) and is built around the company’s Formula X PET technology platform, which eliminates the need to pre-dry PET colors and allows for feeding extruder throat. Suitable for high-end plastic packaging that replicates the look of polished metal for cosmetics, skincare and hair-care products, other health and beauty aids, specialty foods, beverages, and car-care products.
