Metallic effects – Simple and easy without the need for subsequent surface treatments
Metal effects are trendy and the demand for innovative solutions is rising. Additional finishing processes such as subsequent painting or galvanising are often more time-consuming and cost-intensive. In contrast to these processes, the use of colour concentrates offers decisive advantages: the number of production steps is reduced, sourcing and warehousing is simplified.
The Lifocolor effect series Metal Look 2.0 includes a masterbatch range based on a new pigment class with unique results: unprecedented metallic appearance combined with impressive shine. So far the series consists of silver, chrome, bronze and champagne shades, but the range is continuously being expanded. This new collection is particularly suitable for transparent polypropylene formulations. Moreover, it enriches the masterbatch portfolio for high-quality cosmetic packaging. All formulations meet the requirements for food contact according to EC regulation.
