Win 100 Kilos of Optiblo® From Silvergate Plastics

Silvergate Plastics is set to give away one hundred kilos of Optiblo® to the brightest blow moulder of 2017!

Silvergate Plastics is on a mission to find the most vibrant colour used by blow moulders in 2017! The UK’s largest manufacturer of custom colour masterbatch has launched a competition that gives blow moulders the chance to win 100 kilos of the performance enhancing colour masterbatch, Optiblo®.

At the outset of 2017, many plastics processors predicted the year’s colour palettes would be based on complex, introspective themes that reflected a shift in social behaviours. Silvergate plans to end the year on a brighter note that focuses on optimism and positivity. Commenting on the launch of the competition, managing director Sandy Bergeson, said:

“As the world continues to be bombarded by new technologies associated with creating a social disconnect, it was predicted that consumers would be drawn to muted, dark colours in 2017. However, despite the various tragedies that occurred this year, many communities have joined together and rather than continuing to be bombarded with a sombre mood, consumers are now seeking products that instil a sense of fun and playfulness. Having reflected on the year, we at Silvergate want to celebrate those manufacturers who are launching bright, vibrant and uplifting colours into the marketplace so we can look ahead at 2018 with a sense of optimism.”

Silvergate’s competition is simple. Blow moulders are asked to enter by sending a colour sample or the colour reference used to create the most colourful product moulded this year, along with a description of the product. Silvergate will then select the most vibrant colour and reward the winner with 100 kilos of Optiblo® masterbatch, matched to any colour of their choice! You have until 15th January 2018 to enter this exciting competition!

Optiblo® is Silvergate’s revolutionary signature masterbatch, created to slash cycle times and improve the appearance of blow moulded products. Optiblo® enables the polymer to flow faster and at lower temperatures. It reduces energy consumption, eliminates die lines and increases output.
