Attend this webinar to learn how molded-in color can be an efficient and viable technology and an alternative to painting plastic automotive parts. Painting plastic automotive parts is costly and adds complexity to the manufacturing process. Molded-in color (MIC) has long been an alternative to painting these parts.
Recent advances in MIC make this option ever more attractive for parts manufacturers. These advancements have prompted automotive engineers and designers to reconsider using molded-in color for polymer components as a viable alternative to paint. Molded-in color helps to hide scratches and can withstand the elements as well as or better than painted parts. The system cost savings can reach 30% or more.
In addition, MIC is an excellent option - and efficient manufacturing process - to consider when introducing new platforms to appeal to a broader customer base.
