High quality and authentic gold effects are I highly demanded in product design for cosmetics, beauty and personal care packaging. Finished in brilliant gold, they not only engender tremendous desire and attention, but also emphasise the contents’ high value and exclusivity.
To usher in a new golden age of plastics processing, Lifocolor has developed new masterbatches for a particularly brilliant effect. Four different nuances turn packaging in tremendously rich, pure gold tones with a velvety shimmer. The PE-based brilliant gold masterbatches are suitable for polyolefines (e.g. PP, PE) and can be used for injection, extrusion or bottle blow moulding processes at temperatures of up to 300° Celsius. Even at low doses from two per cent, an intense and brilliant gold effect can be achieved with excellent coverage. The masterbatches are also suitable for applications involving food contact, as they have been approved in accordance with 10/2011 EC and the FDA.
