Ampacet Corporation : Color masterbach

Ampacet’s new color masterbach is a proprietary combination of specialty HDPE and POP™ High-gloss Colors designed to retain the inherent gloss in the resin, without the tradeoffs many packagers settle for in order to obtain a high-gloss, molded package.

Said to offer improved mechanical properties such as greater stiffness and melt strength, the color combination boosts gloss more than 200% over that typically found in HDPE. Approved for direct food contact and able to create opaque HDPE containers that may replace those made of PET, yielding cost and processing advantages. The relatively low tackiness of this combination practically eliminates demolding issues and many downstream handling issues, such as scuffing and hang-ups during conveying. It is also less susceptible to deformation when stored at higher temperatures.
