Optically brilliant, technically sophisticated
ECKART presents new effect pigments
at the K 2019
„EXPLORE+“: With this motto ECKART invites customers to discover its new effect pigment solutions for plastics (Plastics Fair K 2019, Hall 5, Stand E 16, Düsseldorf, 16 - 23.10.2019).
Four thematic areas will present products and solutions that are not only visually brilliant, but also technically well focused - for added performance.
New dimensions for optical effects & metallic look
Chrome effects, highly chromatic gemstone optics, piano black, trendy matt effects in copper and bronze, porcelain imitation - the new effect pigments for plastics offer surprisingly different possibilities for product design.
STAPA® PP Reflexal. With STAPA® PP Reflexal, ECKART presents a new series of silver-metallic effect pigment preparations especially tailored to the needs of the plastics industry. These silver dollar based preparations meet the optical requirements of the automotive industry both for interiors and add-on parts. The new pigments for plastics impress with their brightness and extraordinary metallic luster. With the new STAPA® PP Reflexal series, chrome-like metallic optics are possible for the first time through plastic mass dyeing processes – a real alternative to electroplating.
EDELSTEIN Sunstone Champagne. EDELSTEIN Sunstone Champagne is the newest pigment in the EDELSTEIN series. The new addition with its very noble champagne colour displays - depending on the viewing angle and influence of light - a silver-white shimmer or a warm, delicate red colour shade.
Effect pigments for plastics with the plus of protection and safety EMR Protect.
With EMR Protect, ECKART presents a new technology for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). In the age of electromobility and autonomous driving, EMC plays an essential role. EMR Protect offers new possibilities for the plastics and compound industry to provide system solutions for the efficient shielding of electromagnetic radiation.
MASTERSAFE IRON. MASTERSAFE IRON supports the safe use of plastics by, among other things, filtering out unwanted plastic parts, for example in production lines. The innovative effect pigments of MASTERSAFE IRON are magnetically detectable. Iron-based ingredients enable the production of magnetically detectable plastics.
Effect pigments for packaging
The constantly growing regulatory requirements in the packaging sector offer new possibilities for differentiation. Sensitive plastic packaging can be produced with STAPA® WM SILVER FPG (Food Packaging Grade) in metallic optics. STAPA® WM SILVER FPG thus offers an alternative for metallized films in film applications.
MASTERSAFE MP 11-20B and STAPA® WM 40-E are highly opaque effect pigment preparations and pastes especially for applications such as agricultural films, sealing tapes or containers.
Colour Road 2020 – the future colour trends
Trend colours are an important source of information for product design, especially for designers and brand owners. The creative colour ranges of the new Colour Road 2020 are based on inspiration from taste and colour associations. The new themes "Markets", "Fields" and "Gardens" are brilliantly implemented with effect pigments and thus effectively staged to stimulate emotion.
