Inspired by nature

New technical ideas and solutions as well as the trend towards individualisation are taking on an increasingly important role in the world of plastics. New materials, surfaces and shapes impress the consumer and stand out at the “point of sale”.

"Perfect Imperfection" is an effect series where shapes and structures formed over the years by nature are emulated in plastic in ways never seen before. More precisely, it involves the representation of onyx, marble, oxidised metals and even concrete in numerous colour combinations. These will be showcased during Colour Vision No. 17, the annual trend preview from Gabriel-Chemie. Previously unachieved effects in plastic such as marble veining, wood grains, oxidation processes and stone surfaces are achievable in plastic for the first time. Such creativity has virtually no boundaries. The effects represent provoked individuality, controlled randomness and an imaginative range of colours. These impressions can be achieved in PP and HDPE.

Our know-how - your Service

We also develop your preferred colour variation on request.

These effects are achieved thanks to the extraordinarily high level of expertise of our colourists. The outstanding marble effect is obtained through the careful selection of polymers and the master batch recipe. It also involves the accurate adjustment of the processing machinery, essential in itself for a perfect final result. The advice of our specialists is indispensable here. These effects are at their most spectacular during the injection-moulding process. Almost every colour used for the marble and onyx effects is suitable for the manufacture of foodstuffs (in accordance with Decree 1935/2004 EC).
