HDPE Bottle Colour Matching
Raepak offer a colour matching service. This means we can create the perfect colour for your end product. An impeccable solution for matching brand guidelines. You can also consider an iconic decor and bring something new to the market.
Solid colour matching the HDPE bottles.
Solid matching colour options can be used to work with the bottle label. This effect can make a product distinguishable againsts the competition.
Transparent colour matching the HDPE bottles.
HDPE can be coloured matched while keeping its transparent appearance. HDPE bottles will have a natural clouded effect without any additives being applied. This is a fantastic way to make the contents appear a different colour. However, once the liquid is dispensed, a white or transparent appearance can still exist.
Colour matching the liquid contents to work with transparent HDPE bottles.
Colour matching can also be achieved through the liquid contents. This works with a transparent finish. This may help to drive down cost or achieve the desired look to work with your vision.
