Housewares get brighter with DayGlo’s new FDA-cleared Gem-Tone colorants for clarified PP.

The line is currently available in four transparent colors, including Sapphire Blue and Ruby Red, and DayGlo says a full range of colors can be achieved by blending the standard colors to achieve greater effects.

"Consumers are looking for convenient ways to entertain with flair," says Kevin Sonby, VP of marketing at DayGlo. "DayGlo's Gem-Tone colors are ideal for housewares and portable storage containers that go straight to the table, making it easy to store, freeze, carry, reheat and serve in one beautiful container."

DayGlo works closely with masterbatch makers, designers, and manufacturers in its product development and marketing. The company specializes in developing pigments for polyolefins for injection-, blow-, and rotational-molding, as well as for engineering resins, plastisols, and vinyl materials.
