A lower cost alternative to metallization and coating processes for thermoplastics
Ampacet FauxFoil™ masterbatches offer a lower cost alternative to metallization and coating processes and mimic the gloss and shine of metal in a single step. Compatible with conventional molding processes, FauxFoil™ masterbatches do not require a machine or mold change; molded-in color can be achieved with this uniquely-formulated special effects technology.
When compared to painted finishes, FauxFoil™ masterbatches resist scratching and peeling, do not require another production or decoration step and feature a very low (1%) LDR.
FauxFoil™ masterbatches are also a lower cost option compared to the use of color compounds commonly used in durable goods. And, with low VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), manufacturers can work within predetermined regulation requirements.
