Specialty Compounding NY

Specialty compounding allows engineers to customize the appearance of final plastic parts. Color matching technology can create exact pigment replication during the production process. Vibrant and colorful plastic is highly desirable to consumers. Most shoppers want a product that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Behind color matching, plastic can take on special effects like material matching and shifting effect.

Plastic is designed to look like wood, metal, stone, and marble. This design possibility allows manufacturers to create beautiful and long-lasting products that do not need extensive maintenance. Wood is more fragile than plastic, and it also costs more. Using plastic over other materials is highly beneficial, especially when using specialty compounding in NY.

A shifting effect changes the appearance of plastic by altering how light waves and temperature affect it. These effects provide a constantly changing visual effect. The most commonly shifting effects include:

  1. Photochromatic (indoors/outdoors)
  2. Thermochromic (activated/non-activated)
  3. Chroma Shift
