Penn Color Launches PENNACLE FROST
April 16, 2015
Penn Color continues to diversify its colorant offerings with their latest line of Pennacle Frost products for use in commonly used blow molding polymers. The new line of frost-effect colorants will provide brand owners with a vehicle to differentiate their beverage, personal care and household packaging product. These effect colors provide an enhanced matte finish that emulates the decorative spray process most commonly associated with cosmetic, ultra-premium spirits and other high-end consumer products. By integrating the frost effect into the masterbatch, one can eliminate the common ancillary costs associated with the secondary decoration process. Pennacle Frost can be tailored to meet a desired level of translucency or opacity to help achieve an aesthetic continuity across various hues. The colors are formulated to be compatible with active and passive barriers, as well as comply with the customer’s regulatory requirements, including high alcohol.
The frost colors utilize Penn Color’s patent pending Pennacle carrier technology, which provides consistent color incorporation from bottle to bottle, along with improved reheat properties for two-stage platforms. The Pennacle Frost colors do not require pre-drying, and provide further cost savings versus traditional color Masterbatches by allowing higher pigment loading of the colorant for reduced LDR.
Pennacle Frost colors include Amethyst Blast, Ruby Ember, Frozen Sky, Emerald Ray, and Blazing Topaz.
Penn Color is a privately held company with manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Europe, and India, as well as a sales office and research and development lab in China.
