Overview

The process of molding and ink transfer occur simultaneously. This is a non-spray method which can be applied on curvy product.

Feature of our In Mold Decoration Flim

When discussing the characteristics of In Mold Decoration Flim, it is important to recognize his role in the forming process. The process of foil passing through the foil feeder into mold and decoration while molding. It is a cost benefit and environmentally friendly method for mass production with precision alignment. The UV coating highly enhance the reliability and vale of the product, also provide various texture like glossy, matte, embossed and soft touch to customer.

Application for automotive and other fields

This special form of flim will play a key role in injection moulding operations with some special needs. This novel technology can be applied in many fields, such as consumer electronic products, appliances, automotive Interior components.

The strength of In Mold Decoration

In Mold Decoration is characterized by a hardened transparent film on the surface, a printed pattern layer in the middle, and a plastic layer on the back. Because the ink is sandwiched between it, the product can prevent the surface from being scratched and abrasion-resistant, and can maintain the color's vividness for a long time.

The recently developed embossing process can simulate the bionic effects of mold biting, sandblasting, carbon fiber, and natural texture.

Q7. What’s the advantage and disadvantage of IMR?

Advantages—Injection and decoration can be done at the same time.Using IMR technique eliminates the cycle time of production and enlarge the capacity.

Automatic production flow can be designed with roll-to-roll IMR film. IMR is an environmental- friendly decoration method.

Disadvantages— There are restrictions on the design of the product. Products with small R corner and deep wrapping angle is not suitable for IMR. The minimum order quantity is comparingly high.
