If your consumer products need more “sparkle,” check out the new series of color concentrates from Teknor Apex Co. (Pawtucket, RI). StarDust concentrates yield a sparkling effect produced by glinting flakes within the color itself, providing merchandisers with a new option for product differentiation.
StarDust concentrates are available in all standard colors and are supplied in pellet form for injection molding and as dry powder for rotational molding. The powder form is the first sparkle-effect colorant for the roto-molding process.
“StarDust concentrates provide an enjoyable sparkle that helps manufacturers strengthen brand identity, enhance shelf appeal or simply add aesthetic value to otherwise utilitarian objects,” said John Wood, Technical Director of the Color Division of Teknor Apex.
The company recommends StarDust concentrates for consumer products such as toys, housewares, dust bins, waste bins, storage bins and other items where shelf appeal or visual enjoyment are key values. Rotomolding applications include kayaks, outdoor furniture, coolers and sporting equipment.
A custom compounder of plastics, Teknor Apex produces flexible and rigid vinyl, thermoplastic elastomers, nylons, color masterbatches, specialty chemicals and hoses. The company operates 13 manufacturing facilities worldwide in the United States, Belgium, Germany, China and Singapore.
