Journey to the stars


Blankenhain, August 2014 –Luminescent masterbatches in a wide range of colors and plastics applications from the GRAFE Group have been on the market for years. The range offers everything from injection molding through extrusion to staple fibers. This year, once again, the company is offering an outstanding array of excellent new ideas. One of these is a color effect that renders the appeal of the night time starry sky. An impressive experience that is worth discovering.


 The importance of masterbatches for luminescent plastics remains unbroken. This can be seen by the strong market demand. While in the past, only one color was available, there is today a wide range of color options in luminescent plastics. The GRAFE Group can produce this product in all popular thermoplasts, and can vary the duration and intensity of the luminescence individually in accordance with customer specifications.


Over the past years, there has been strong growth in the use of masterbatches for luminescent plastics. „The application of colored luminescent masterbatches for the plastics industry is booming again” reports Danny Ludwig, Head of Development. „Our product is available in a range of luminescent colors for all the usual thermoplasts. We can adapt the duration and intensity of luminescence to meet our customers’ demands.“ 

The resulting products can be found across a large range of applications from the fashion and advertising industries through the toy industry to the production of safety equipment. Especially in emergency situations caused by power failures, a quick orientation and a focused search for emergency exits can save lives. An example of such a useful, luminescent safety aid might be a carpet with embedded luminescent fibers which are normally not visible by daylight but appear only in the dark. 

Luminescent masterbatches have been well-known for years but are gaining new importance through their application in technical materials. Until now, customary products have been available only in a green-yellow luminescent color. With the innovative masterbatches of the Thuringian company, products can now light up in a whole new variety of colors.
