New Perfume Caps in Turkey
DuPont™ Surlyn® strengthens its position in the Turkish cosmetic industry
Recent cosmetic applications in Turkey demonstrate the growing global appeal of elegant and functional DuPont™ Surlyn® molding resins.
Recent cosmetic applications in Turkey, such as the new 'Fiery' perfume range from Akat Cosmetics, demonstrate the growing global appeal of elegant and functional Surlyn® molding resin from DuPont.
Comparing alternatives such as aluminum, PMMA or polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Akat found that Surlyn® offered glass-like transparency and appealing surface-feel, along with essential chemical and impact resistance. The material's ease of processing enabled production of thick-walled caps in a single injection-molding operation, a further benefit of Surlyn® which has led to its popularity in cosmetic applications.
Color adherence of the cap with the bottle is achieved with the use of a masterbatch. "We have been greatly impressed by the aesthetics and performance of Surlyn®. The overall appeal of our packaging, which incorporates a butterfly theme, is maintained by the attractiveness of the Surlyn® cap," comments Adnan Akat, owner of Akat Cosmetics.
Meanwhile, Erkul Cosmetics uses Surlyn® PC 100 molding resin, a grade of Surlyn® which is able to achieve high levels of optical clarity, for the caps of its "Golden Rose" perfume. Representing a new line for the company, the in-house packaging production team sought a material able to replicate the color and transparency of the packaged product.
"These latest applications in Turkey confirm the global appeal of Surlyn® for cosmetic applications, particularly around the theme of perfect transparency without sacrifices in performance," states Nilgun Turan, business development manager in the country for DuPont Cosmetic Solutions. "Beyond our value-adding materials, key strengths of the DuPont offering include our consulting and technical expertise, gained from a cutting-edge, global role in providing cosmetic solutions . All are of considerable benefit to a developing cosmetic industry such as the one in Turkey," she adds.
