In a competitive marketplace, customers need to differentiate their products. CPP Global employs existing decorating technologies and invests in new ones to offer new and exciting options in support of our customers’ quests for unique products.

Through one or a combination of the various techniques below, customers can achieve unique appearances that will drive consumers to their products:

  • Metalizing
  • Silk screening (conventional and innovation-driven)
  • Heat transfer labeling (conventional and innovation-driven)
  • Hot stamping
  • Painting
  • UV coating
  • Frosting
  • Soft touch
  • Pad printing
  • Bi-injection of multiple colors or materials
  • Metal over-shells
  • Pearl


Customers who desire a metalized appearance at a lower cost and greater sustainability than metallization or metal over-shells are ideal candidates for CPP Global’s Metalook™.

Metalook is a proprietary process that gives the appearance of a metal finish to plastic components. The appearance is almost indistinguishable from metal. Metalook can be applied to almost any plastic surface in a wide array of colors that include both matte and gloss finishes. Surfaces are durable and resist dings and dents, while remaining compatible with other decorating techniques like silk screening and hot stamping.

Most important, Metalook offers significant cost savings and does not prevent recycling.
