Ampacet Corporation : Plastic chrome alternative
Part of Ampacet’s LiquidMetal™ line of metal effects for plastics, their chrome-alternative colorants have been developed for use in extrusion and injection blow-molded bottles.
The environmentally-friendly chrome-alternative eliminates the need in PET and other glossy polymers for corrosive chemical baths, multi-stage processing, and the high cost of fabricating and shipping. The dry colorant, which is simply added into the resin stream prior to the molding process, becomes part of the polymer matrix. Bright Chrome 620614-PT molded in PET plastic provides the closest parallel to chrome metal. Color adjustments, sparkle effects or a more antique brushed metal effect can be made through custom modifications.
