Speckle effects in thermoplastics are possible without abrasion associated with many mineral-based additives, according to OmniDex Products Corp.
The Crown Point, Ind., firm said it has seven colors to create granite, sandstone and similar effects. It makes the speckles from thin, colored, tough thermoset film ground into particles that can be blended with plastics. Countertops, furniture and other consumer products are potential applications.
