DuPont™ Surlyn® Resins for Injection Molding Products
Create Innovative Applications for
DuPont™ Surlyn® offers crystal clarity, colorability, and fine-art shapes and textures for injection molded products made for luxury packaging.
DuPont™ Surlyn® PC-grade resins are optimized for premium performance in appearance-critical applications, such as the molding of perfume and cosmetics packaging components. General molding principles for these resins are similar to those for all Surlyn® resins and can be reviewed in the Surlyn® Molding Guide.
The resins are inherently transparent when molded into shapes, such as perfume caps and jars. Designers enhance this glass-like appearance by adding frosted and highly shaped textures and by adding color at a fraction of the cost associated with achieving these effects using traditional materials.
Some of the newer effects cannot be reproduced cost-effectively using any other method:
- Deep Glossy Colors
- Porcelain-like Caps
- Marble/Agate Effects
- Bubble Effects
- Pearl & Glitter Effects
Unlike many other plastics, Surlyn® resins are chemically resistant to oils and other fragrance ingredients. Parts molded of the resin are virtually unbreakable and will not chip or damage expensive countertops or tiles when accidentally struck against such surfaces.
