Ampacet FauxFoilTM 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 aluminium foil and metalized films.
Compatible with conventional molding processes, FauxFoilTM masterbatches do not require a machine or mold change; molded-in-colour can be achieved with this uniquely formulated special effects technology. When compared to painted finished, FauxFoilTM masterbatches resist scratching and peeling, do not require another production or decoration step and feature a very low (1%) LDR.
FauxFoilTM masterbatches are also a lower cost option compared to the use of colour compounds commonly used in durable goods. And with low VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), manufacturer can work within predetermined regulation requirements.
