Color concentrates impart a soft translucent "frosted" effect to polypropylene (PP) products. Based on heavy metal-free pigments in a PP carrier resin, these additions to the TEKlite(reg) line of concentrates produce the frosted effect uniformly throughout the molded or extruded product. Standard TEKlite frosted-effect colors include light blue and green, lime, dark green, yellow, and red. The colors are supplied as nominal 0.125- or 0.0625-inch pellets or beads and can be used with homopolymer or copolymer PP resins in injection molding.
