Film Insert Moulding (FIM) is a versatile and cost effective method of decorating and manufacturing durable plastic parts, it is an advanced form of In Mould Decoration (IMD) or In Mould Labelling (IML). The flat film is firstly reverse decorated (normally screen printed) then optionally formed, cut and finally back injection moulded. With FIM you can easily integrate components such as lens and body into a single unit using just one of our hardcoated films.
MacDermid Autotype has a range of innovative hardcoated PC, PET and PMMA film systems suitable for Film Insert Moulding (FIM), allowing you to decorate moulded components. This hardcoat technology provides enhanced scratch, solvent and chemical resistant surfaces, with systems for altering texture and gloss levels on a part surface. The product systems are suitable for a variety of different depths of form, from flat inserts to complex 3D shapes.
Ideal for consumer and medical devices, appliances and interior automotive applications.
