Suitable for containers, cosmetics packaging, and automotive accessories, the innovative dry colorant offers an environmentally friendly, lighter-weight, lower-cost chrome alternative. Part of the new LiquidMetal™ line of metal effects, the colorants eliminate the need in PET and other glossy polymers for corrosive chemical baths, multistage processing, and the high cost of fabricating and shipping, without sacrificing chrome’s aesthetic appeal.
