Differentiation through vibrant colors and effects, lightweight packaging and efficiency-driven solutions
- The Figaro Effect – captivating, random swirl patterns that bring life to plastics. Developed at Clariant's ColorWorks, the new dynamic line of multicolor masterbatches are used in combination with a proprietary, patented, multilayer molding process to create levels of opacity, translucency, gloss and special effects that achieve unprecedented artistry.
- HiFormer the new integrated system for liquid masterbatches designed to enhance product properties and process parameters for customers and fulfill their international service needs. In addition to the improved efficiency of the manufacturing processes, the liquid masterbatches are highly concentrated to achieve brilliant, vibrant hues. For packaging customers, recent development focus has been on advancing EBM monolayer production processes. HiFormer EBM monolayer systems offer a significant reduction in color change time, plus a trouble-free manufacturing process.
- New generation Hydrocerol masterbatches for lighter plastic packaging. Hydrocerol chemical foaming agents reduce the amount of plastic needed to make packaging without compromising performance or aesthetics. Packaging weight can be reduced by up to 20% while maintaining impact strength, good quality surface finishing and compliance with requirements for direct food contact. Lighter weight packaging also reduces shipping costs and fuel consumption.
