Pennacle® is a comprehensive line of unique technologies and novel solutions for blow molding applications. Our Pennacle® color and additive masterbatches are designed for optimal performance in all types of blow molding processes. Our proprietary carrier systems are fully compatible with all common blow molding resins, including PET, PP, PE and many more.
From a masterbatch perspective:
From a processing perspective:
From a finished bottle perspective:
Specific Technologies under the Pennacle umbrella include:
Designed specifically for opaque blow molded applications, pennacle® OPAQUE is a patent-pending technology that improves color distribution and swirling common in blow molded bottle applications across all polymers. In two-stage PET blow molded applications, pennacle® OPAQUE technology improves the reheat of preforms, significantly widens the process window, reduces scrap rate and lowers energy consumption
White and light colored opaque preforms can be a challenge to reheat and blow because of their reflectivity . PENNACLE® -HEAT Optimizes the thermoconductivity for improved heat distribution during the reheat stage, which widens the processing window of this stage in the two stage process.
Create brilliant haze free PET bottles that aid differentiation at point of purchase. pennacle® AQUABRIGHT provides aesthetic enhancement that overcome haze and clarity issues common when using recycled PET. Cost reduction, PCR, Optical enhancement, property enhancement,
A water-clear additive, PENNACLE® -SA can be added to clear and colored preforms to:
This technology is suitable for single and two stage molding applications, and carries wide regulatory approval.
As the debate continues on liquid color vs. solid color, Penn Color introduces PENNACLE®-L for those applications that demand a liquid colorant system.
As with our solid masterbatch technology PENNACLE®-L successfully tackles the common problems associated with liquid color, including:
