Specific examples of Moonshine effect pigment use in plastics include consumer goods such as spectacle frames, mobile phone cases and portable electronics. In the home, many fixtures and fittings such as countertops, door furniture and flooring use effect pigments to catch the eye. Within the plastics market, functional properties of conductivity and EMI shielding can also be gained from silver based effect pigments.
Polymers & Plastics
Moonshine effect pigments are blended into many plastics through the use of masterbatches. These compounds provide great versatility in end user applications benefiting from the visual effect. Borosilicate pigments are ideal for use in plastics, where the excellent solvent and temperature resistance is crucial in harsh processing and operating conditions.
