From pearl shimmer to rainbow colors and the illusion of depth

The GRAFE-Group from Blankenhain, Germany has collaborated with Schlenk Metallic Pigments GmbH from Roth, Germany to create a unique development project in which light reflections in all the colors of the rainbow shimmer impressively on a plastic surface and create a hologram effect. Subsequently, in collaboration with the responsible for design and production at Koziol GmbH, based in Lauterbach, Germany, this project was successfully implemented for the first time. Koziol is a leading manufacturer of plastic design articles for the home and office. The manufactured product is a beautiful stand with shelves. Advantages of this designer piece are its different surfaces, since they show the effect of the pigment on glossy and matt structures.

GRAFE Automotive Competence

The demands of the automotive market for interior trim and exterior applications with increasingly specialized and complex properties present a major challenge to the manufacturers of masterbatches and compounds. Starting from product development all the way up to series production, the industry has been forced to react quickly and flexibly to the specialized demands of the automotive industry on the makers of thermoplastic components in cars. Masterbatch and compound producers can have a significant influence on the end quality of the thermoplastic products manufactured for cars. This is reflected in both surface and color of the components. Masterbatch and compound formulations shape the technical properties of the components manufactured for car interiors. These features include for example UV and thermal stability, scratch resistance, as well as structural and mechanical properties.
