Amapcet's new line features brass, chrome, copper, black onyx, graphite and gunmetal blue colors. LiquidMetal, suited to blow molded and extruded PET, allows packagers to replicate a polished metal look for cosmetics and health aids, and for specialty foods and car-care products, according to the Tarrytown, N.Y., company.
The new masterbatches are based on Ampacet's Formula X technology, which eliminates the need to pre-dry PET colors and allows feeding at the extruder throat. Ampacet claims its new colors provide cost savings and design flexibility compared with polished metal packaging.
Ampacet operates a masterbatch facility in Heath, Ohio.
