In-mold decorating (IMD) is a process in which a pre-printed label or graphic is placed inside a mold before injection molding, resulting in a decorated finished product. Total Plastic Solutions can work with you to realize some of the benefits of IMD including:
- Durable and scratch-resistant: The graphics and labels are protected by the molded plastic, making them highly durable and resistant to scratches and wear.
- Aesthetic appeal: IMD allows for highly detailed graphics and labels that are integrated seamlessly into the final product, resulting in a highly aesthetic and visually appealing appearance.
- Cost-effective: IMD can be a cost-effective alternative to other decorating methods, such as pad printing, painting or hot stamping, as it eliminates the need for additional decorating steps.
- Design flexibility: IMD allows for a high degree of design flexibility, including the ability to incorporate multiple colors and textures, and to customize designs for individual products.
- Production efficiency: IMD is a highly automated process, allowing for high-volume production with minimal labor costs and reduced material waste.
- Brand recognition: IMD can help to enhance brand recognition by providing a highly visible and distinctive product appearance that can be easily recognized by customers.
