SmartColor™ Masterbatch Technology

AmpaTrace™ Anti-Counterfeit Identification
AmpaTrace™ color and additive masterbatches develop a unique “fingerprint” signature for use on flexible and rigid plastic packaging and plastic molded products. AmpaTrace™ can be used with blow and injection molding, blown or cast extrusion and other processing methods.
Ampacet offers a broad range of special effects that deliver extra excitement and appeal in rigid plastic packaging and consumer molded products such as our Chrome Effects masterbatch for PET.
Colors and resins impart exceptional color depth and light movement. POP™ masterbatches enable blow molded plastics to by-pass process and downstream problems typically associated with high gloss resin. In addition, POP™ technology ensures faster purging during color change-over, reduces line down-time, enhances quality, and optimizes daily production output.
FormulaX™ High-Impact for PET Colors
Ampacet has specially formulated FormulaX™, a new, dry PET based masterbatch that eliminates the need to pre-blend and pre-dry PET bottle and film resins before processing. The FormulaX™ family of masterbatches works with single or dual stage molding processes, sheet extrusions and thermoforming. Machinery venting is not required.
Ampacet’s innovative frosted masterbatch (Ampacet 603122-PT and 603121-PT) takes PET and other clear resins to an upscale level. Effects from translucent to opaque with finishes from high luster to matte (Ampacet 603121-PT) or subtle blue or green color tones of vintage glass (Ampacet 672226-PT and 669467-PT) are achieved in a single time and cost-saving step during stretch blow molding and thermoforming.
LiquidMetal™ for the Look of Reflective Metal
LiquidMetal™ masterbatches for PET ramps up the visual impact with color, depth and intensity that rivals the highly buffed look of clear-coat metal automotive finishes. LiquidMetal’s dry masterbatch formulation improves color dispersion and eliminates feed throat clogging and screw slippage.
A family of LiquidMetal™ products has been developed for use on PET rigid packaging and consumer and industrial molded plastic products.
