Faux Foil™ Technology

A lower cost and more sustainable 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. They also reduce the environmental impact associated with conventional aluminum foil and metalized films. 

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.
