IN MOLD DECORATION

IMD



 
Double Injection

In Mold Decoration (IMD) is a cost effective method of decorating plastic parts. It consists of four steps: Printing, Forming, Trimming and Injection Molding.

After a plastic film is silk screen printed with a customer’s design, it is then thermo-formed over a soft tooled mold. Once the plastic decoration is shaped it is trimmed to size. After trimming, the shaped film is placed into an injection mold and a selected mold material is injected behind it forming an integrated bond.

IMD offers long lasting decoration with multiple colors and textures. Beyond IMD, membrane switches and/or additional double injection molding can be added to your part or product for extended functionality.
