Ampacet Corporation : Frosted-glass masterbatches
Ampacet has extended its line of masterbatches that give PET bottles the look of frosted glass with a series of low-luster grades.
The new grades give bottles a better matte finish that creates a strong similarity to etched glass for use with cosmetics, alcohol, high-end beverages, and other upscale products. The frosted masterbatches are added during the extrusion process, eliminating the need for the costly spray painting that has previously been used to produce a premium frosted effect in stretch blow-molded bottles and thermoformed packaging. Masterbatches are built around the company’s Formula X™ PET technology, which eliminates the need for predrying and therefore allows for feeding at the extruder throat and lower energy demand.
