Global masterbatch leader Ampacet has worked alongside NaturePlast to develop a new range of materials made from post-consumer recycling and marine waste – a development explored further in this edition of the Spotlight.
Ampacet, a global masterbatch leader, and NaturePlast, bioplastic experts since 2006, have launched the Secret Sea-Grit collection made from 100% PCR material and aquaculture waste.
As new sustainable strategies are implemented as part of the circular economy, efforts to find solutions to aquaculture waste are becoming increasingly important. The Secret Sea-Grit masterbatch collection of colors shows that waste can be converted into a useful, sustainable product.
Specifically designed for injection molded products, Secret Sea-Grit is suitable for consumer goods and packaging applications in multiple markets.
The collection of timeless, nature-inspired shades provides a nurturing aesthetic available in eight sustainably evocative colorways: Bivalve Brown, Nude Nacre, Muted Murex, Softshell Celadon, Beachcomber Blue, Salty Sienna, Brackish Brown, and Saltwater Sand.
