BRAND NAME, NEW PACKAGING AND LABELLING FOR BLACK MASTERBATCH

Over the years Ampacet has built up its brand awareness in Europe mainly due to its Black & White Masterbatch product range. Ampacet remains highly committed to the market and is keen to continually build and grow its Black Masterbatch segment. Due to this, Ampacet is going to re-vitalize and harmonize the Black European Masterbatch product range by harmonizing product naming, labelling and packaging.Black MB

Product naming and labeling

Starting from the end of April Ampacet Europe uses the standardized label which is very similar to the current one with the exception of the “Description” field. You will no longer see the “Black xxx MB” in the description field. It has been replaced by ONYX code composed of “ONYX”+ the last 4 digits of the product code (and letters in some cases). For example, the Black Masterbatch 193214 has been named as “ONYX 3214”. The other fields stay exactly the same as before.

Packaging

Starting from the end of April, Ampacet Europe delivers all Black Masterbatch products in transparent bags. The use of harmonized transparent film for all Masterbatch types contributes to a better visibility for quality control and to the standardisation of packaging across all product types.

Specific reference and/or description on customer labels (marked between Ampacet Europe and content field) continues to be applied.

By the end of April 2016 the old product names have become obsolete and the new ones have been implemented. This means that all new production of Black Masterbatch and transport documents are issued with the new “product description”. Due to the stock flow, it may occur that you receive documents with a new product description but the bags and pallets will be labelled with the old one. This situation may last up to 4 months for MTS products and up to 12 months for MTO products.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
