Create Packaging That Gets Noticed with New Impress™ High Gloss Metallic Effect Colorants from PolyOne

May 15, 2017

GUANGZHOU, China – PolyOne today announced the Asia launch of its new Impress™ High Gloss Metallic Effect Colorant at Chinaplas 2017. Available in solid and liquid forms, this colorant can enhance blow-molded PET rigid packaging with an ultra-glossy metallic effect. A wide range of color options enable manufacturers to create almost unlimited combinations of color and gloss for bottles with a brilliant, attention-grabbing appearance.

“The consumer market has never been more competitive, and packaging is often the winning factor,” said Say-Eng Lee, general manager, Color and Additives Asia for PolyOne. “As brand owners compete for shelf space and consumers, Impress can help them differentiate their products to grab consumers’ attention on the shelf.”

Impress metallic effect colorants can be processed on standard injection stretch blow molding machinery, and create no flow lines that would disrupt the brilliant glossy surface.

“These formulations offer our customers an easy-to-implement solution that creates out-of-this-world effects,” added Gary Fielding, global marketing director, Color and Additives at PolyOne. “Customers have the flexibility to choose a solid masterbatch or liquid concentrate version to meet their process and application requirements.”

PolyOne is showcasing packaging made with Impress technology at Science & Innovation Exhibition Area (Hall11.3, Stand R41) from May 16-19 at Chinaplas in Guangzhou.
