At In-Cosmetics 2015 in Barcelona GEOTECH is introducing new Colour and Effect Guidelines based on the anticipated fashion and colour trends for 2016. The Colour and Effect Guidelines for 2016 are divided into three themes.
This year's guidelines are created with a focus on pure raw materials which resulted in a range of unique, new shades of pearlescent, metallic and glitter effects. The three guidelines are presented in a trend box which contains six finished products, twenty one jars with special effect pigments and six postcards with inspirational pictures as examples of how the guidelines can be interpretated. The presentation is guided with complete formulations.

GEOTECH launches a new range of cellulose based special effect pigments for the plastic industry.
Geofiber® microfibers are very fine, thin fiber particles offering special effects for a wide variety of plastic applications. Microfibers are being used as a decorative additive in different types of masterbatches (PP, PE or ABS). Well known applications for microfibers are household equipment such as coffee machines, waste baskets and electric razors.
Compared to glitter flakes, microfibers provide more matte, sophisticated marble effects. The product range contains six shades: black, brown, red, yellow, green and blue. Each colour is available in two particle sizes: 500 x 17 micron and 500 x 38 micron. The new cellulose based fibers are resistant against high temperatures (< 300 degrees Celsius) and friction (shear) which may accor in the production process of masterbatches.
