Circular Aesthetics, a sustainable packaging collaboration between Ampacet, a global masterbatch leader and EMD Electronics, experts in special effects pigments for printing and plastics applications, has been nominated for an “In Green 2022” Award by Luxe Pack 2022, the premier trade show for luxury packaging.
The display box features two blow-molded bottles; the first is made of 100% recycled PET polymer and contains Ampacet’s BlueEdgeTM additive, which reduces the yellow or brown dingy appearance of post-consumer recycled plastic. Both the bottle and cap feature EMD’s Iriotec pigment, which allows inkless marking for identification, labeling or identification and Ampacet’s LaserEtch, to sharpen marking and readability on transparent and light-colored bottles.
The second bottle in the display is made of 100% PCR HDPE polymer, with Ampacet’s Anti-Yellowing Pearl special effects masterbatch used on the bottle and cap and with EMD’s Iriodin WAY pigments for weather resistance, anti-yellowing and light stability.
“Our successful “Circular Aesthetics” collaboration with EMD Electronics has resulted in sustainable bottle designs for 100% recycled polymers that feature excellent polymer performance as well as exceptional consumer appeal,” says Doreen Becker, Corporate Director of Sustainability, Ampacet. “We look forward to sustainable packaging collaborations in the future.”
