  • Publication number: 20140099459
    Abstract: A shaped part that is formed from a polymer composition that contains a liquid crystalline polymer and a metallic pigment is provided. By selectively controlling the type and relative concentration of these components, the polymer composition and shaped parts formed therefrom can have a metallic-like appearance. In addition to possessing an aesthetically pleasing appearance similar to stainless steel articles, the metallic-like appearance can also provide a signal to a user that the foodstuff article can be safely heated in an oven or stove.
