New visual effects in DuPont™ Surlyn® 3D overmoulding technology

24.10.2011
Making its commercial debut, the packaging for 'Brightup Foundation' from the new Japanese beauty line Aquagirl Cosmetics uses DuPont™ Surlyn® 3D overmolding technology to create an intriguing visual effect.

The foundation itself is enclosed within a translucent polypropylene container, the straight walls of which are magnified for an impression of depth by the curved, thick-walled and highly-transparent outerlayer which has been overmolded in Surlyn®.

The sparkling, perfect encapsulation of the 'Aquagirl' brand name below the outerlayer adds to the overall premium appearance of the cosmetic packaging and creates an impression of on-the-go luxury. The cosmetic container is produced using DuPont™ Surlyn® 3D overmolding technology by Yoshida Industries in Japan.

Surlyn® 3D technology involves the overmolding of a single or multilayer polymer inner container with glass-like transparent, highly-durable Surlyn® resins. Named Surlyn® 3D, the D’s stand for Design, Decoration and Depth. Enhancements from DuPont include - on an aesthetic level - the creation of complementary and opposing shapes and colors for the inner and outer containers of perfume, personal care and make-up packaging. On a more practical level, the material combinations possible with Surlyn® 3D technology can lead to improved barrier properties and chemical resistance according to the cosmetics ingredients and application.

The final result is the creation of cosmetic and perfume packaging with glass-like transparency, luxury decorative effects and increased consumer safety and convenience that simultaneously reflect brand identity and achieve product differentiation. DuPont Cosmetic Solutions brings DuPont’s "Miracles of Science" to the world of beauty and personal care by expanding the possibilities of its comprehensive range of materials and technologies, and by fostering partnerships focused on technology and consumer insight.

Its primary aim is to develop new and differentiated cosmetic solutions that meet brand owners’ and designers’ needs for innovation while enhancing the consumer experience and bring more fun, emotion and well-being. DuPont Packaging and Industrial Polymers is a world-class manufacturer of high-performance resins and films for a variety of packaging and industrial applications. Its best-known ethylene copolymer products include Surlyn® resins for packaging and industrial applications, Bynel® coextrudable adhesives, Selar® PA amorphous polyamide barrier resins, Nucrel® acid copolymers, Elvax® EVA copolymers, Elvaloy®, Elvaloy® AC, Entira™ , Biomax® PTT and Fusabond® modifiers.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
