Knowing how to translate topical trends into attractive packaging often is the decisive advantage in the race for attention. The challenge usually is to make an extraordinary idea work quickly and efficiently.

Here creative heads, designers, producers of trade mark articles and packaging manufacturers find a large variety of ideas and suggestions – technical realization guarantied.
Displaying a number of appealing small bottles made of different materials, the Kreativbox demonstrates the whole variety of special effects that can be realized with FIBAPLAST, FIBAFEKT or FIBACOMP masterbatches. By its way of application – transparent, translucent or covering – even one colour shade can produce different impressions.
In addition, a variety of technical processes and additives allow for special effects like metallic gleam, pearly shine, rainbow or colour flop. A lustrous, lacquered-like finish can be as easily produced as a soft-grip surface. Even fragrances can be incorporated into the material.
