Pinneberg/Germany, March 18th, 2016 - Frankfurt’s Christmas World, the biggest trade show for decorative items for the Christmas season, has once again proved the point: candles and tea lights are very much in vogue! While these timeless lights are hugely popular towards the end of the year, they are also much-loved in warmer months. When the BBQ seems to be never coming to an end, it’s brightly-coloured tea lights that help to give the garden table a romantic touch. One leading producer of cups for these tea lights is EG-Plastic, based in Dreis-Brück in the Vulkaneifel district of Germany. The injection moulding machines here already swing into action in autumn 2015 in time for January’s Christmas World, to ensure that both the standard colours and the hottest trends can be exhibited for Christmas 2016.
The requirements for colouring recycled PET and polycarbonate materials are very demanding since the concentrate not only has to ensure that colouration is evenly translucent throughout but must also meet the challenges of guaranteeing thermal stability. EG-Plastic distributes this colourful quality across Europe.
Customers can also ask ROWA Masterbatch to supply them with sample granulates and pads: this enables them to peer the colour in an initial test and easily reproduce this colour in the final product. This approach is clearly one that pays its way, since the partnership with EG-Plastic has been very successful for many years now. Dipl.-Ing. Hendrik Genoske, Director of Sales and Technology at EG-Plastic: “We have to have the knack of identifying trends and colours early on, and we’ve found the perfect partner in ROWA Masterbatch for bringing our high-quality products to life.”
