Highlights at Interpack:
Differentiation through vibrant 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.
. 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.
