Materials maker Ampacet Corp. has introduced the Dallol Collection, a series of colors with an African influence.
In a news release, officials with Ampacet in Tarrytown, N.Y., said that the collection is "designed to impart a modern, dynamic vibrancy to injection molded parts." Dallol is designed for polyethylene and polypropylene uses and "enables brand owners to increase consumer product shelf appeal," they added.
"The collection reflects colors emanating from Africa, offering visual excursions into the fiery depths of volcanos that produce the unique colors indigenous to Dallol, the hottest place on earth inhabited by humans," Philippe Hugele, rigid packaging business manager, said in the release.
Dallol is a region of northern Ethiopia. Officials said that colors in the collection include the "fiery warmth" of Hot Springs, the "grounded russet tone" of Lapilli and the "fresh foamed blue" of Gwisho. They added that the colors can be customized to support brand messaging.
Ampacet ranks as one of North America's 30 largest compounders and concentrate makers. The firm employs more than 2,000 at 25 manufacturing sites worldwide and has annual sales of more than $1 billion.
