Ampacet launches PET packaging with weathered glass effect

Published: 11-Apr-2023

The US-based plastic moulding company has launched a new product that is ideal for nutraceuticals

The new SeaGlass Collection from global masterbatch leader Ampacet captures the look and feel of the naturally weathered shards of discarded glass polished by the ocean and prized by beachcombers around the world.

“Our new SeaGlass Collection reinforces our ethos of finding beauty in waste,” said Mercedes Landázuri, Ampacet Market Insight Manager. “The colour palette showcases the luminous colours found in these treasures from the sea.”

Landázuri added in a LinkedIn post: "Our SeaGlass Collection is ideal for beauty, nutraceuticals, home care and refillables."

These unique effects for PET enhance the shelf appeal of packaging and products without a mould change. As with other coloured PET packaging, products made with SeaGlass can find a second life recycled into textile fibres. For example, 50 2-litre bottles can create one square yard of carpet fibre with fewer emissions than using virgin plastics.

The SeaGlass Collection’s carefully curated palette includes the softened blush of Quiet Coral, the highly prized colour found in Rarified Red, the beauty of Pitted Lime, and one of the rarest colours of beach glass, Tumbled Teal.
