Ampacet Corp. has debuted a special-effects masterbatch designed to boost shelf appeal in packaging and consumer goods.

Matrix materials make parts look like they are disrupted below the surface due to underlying surface tension. The masterbatches are available in highly pearlized colors such as silver, blue, copper and black.

The White Plains, N.Y., firm says Matrix materials are suited to blow molding and specialty injection molding.

"The visual tension you see in the Matrix collection emulates the appearance of [data collection and privacy invasion]," said Ampacet Color insight manager Linda Carroll in a news release.
