Foaming Agents, 3D Color Effects, & Our Thanksgiving Hours (Nov. 21. 2017)
THE BENEFITS OF FOAMING AGENTS
New research presented at the Plastics Caps & Closures 2017 Conference shows the benefits of foaming agents in caps & closures applications.
Researchers successfully incorporated a foaming agent into a hinged closure for a shampoo bottle without any loss of quality or strength. By introducing a foaming agent at 1%, researchers were able to reduce cycle time by 15%, reduce overall resin usage by 8%, and reduce the overall net cost by 4%, all while maintaining the closure’s quality & strength.
JEG supplies a range of endothermic, exothermic & binary foaming agents. Contact us today at 614-882-1295 for a free sample and find out how foaming agents can benefit your product.
REPLICATING NATURE WITH IMPERFECT COLORS
A recent report from the Society of Plastics Engineers showcases the importance of innovation when creating vivid 3D color effects.
Demand for realistic, natural color effects like onyx, marble, concrete, and oxidized rust exploded in 2017 as brand owners looked to incorporate unique aestehticts into their products. Special color effects that replicate the unique occurrences of nature are expected to become more widespread in 2018 as designers, engineers, and suppliers continue to develop easier-to-process, creative color effects.
JEG offers unique colors effects to brand owners; some of our most popular effects include marble, quartz, wood grain, and gold pearlescent. Contact us today at 614-882-1295 to get your project started with a color consultation and free color sample.
