PET has become the material of choice for high-end premium packagings. Well established in the food and drink segment, it seems to be on its way to outrank PE in the cosmetics market.
Finke has always placed great emphasis on a comprehensive service in the realization of design concepts. To speed up this process for PET dyeing, the color masterbatch producer has now expanded its technical center in Wuppertal. With the new blow molding equipment for PET bottles, the translation of color concepts into production stage coloring and additive systems will become even faster.
„Comprehensive advice and support for our customers from design stage to end product is very important to us”, explains managing director Felix Finke. „With PET becoming more and more important in the packaging market, the new molding system for PET bottles was the logical next step in expanding our technical center.”
When it comes to developing new formulas, Finke keeps the complete production process in sight. Colorists and technicians work with the customer’s original material. Individual production conditions are simulated in Finke’s state of the art technical center, because the right dye or pigment composition depends not only on the polymer and envisaged application but also to a large extend on the type of processing. OEM und brand manufacturers save valuable time, because the dyeing systems are perfectly adapted to their needs and can be applied in their production processes immediately.
Apart from the new PET blow molding system, Finke operates several injection molding systems as well as film and sheet extruders. PE and PP bottles can be produced in mono- and co-extrusion processes.
