Frosted PET Overview

Those who give PET bottles a frosted-glass look for use with high-end cosmetics, personal care, alcohol and other products have, until now, had to spray paint the parts to achieve the premium color effect. This new offering from Chroma eliminates the added painting step and the time and cost by letting processors create a frosted look by using a concentrate. The Cost to color the frosted plastic bottles are estimated to cost at least 90% less than those that are painted, is more durable because the color is molded into the plastics and eliminates the added time and loss associated with the paining process.
  • Achieve high end look of glass with the safety of plastics
  • Eliminate Cost and time to paint - 90% less costly compared to painting the bottles
  • Added durability as color is molded in and will not scratch off

Frosted PET Applications


The new masterbatch can be formulated for, acrylic, polycarbonate, and PET. In terms of processing it works well in blow molding, reheat blow molding, sheet extrusion and so allows for frosted thermoformed containers. This masterbatch also allows the addition of special effect pigments to PET to enhance the frosted look without the streaking, pin holes and other issues often encountered when such pigments are utilized in PET.

Frosted PET Use Requirements


Varying the use rates, typically between 1 and 5 percent, allows processors to control the intensity of the frosted effect and provide bottles that range from translucent to opaque.

Frosted PET Product Trials


Chroma Corporation’s frosted product allows end users to get a fresh, clean and premium appearance of sandblasted glass in a one step blow molding and sheet extrusion operation. This is a flexible masterbatch and can be tinted to create the soft blue and green tones associated with vintage glass.
