The Only Plastic Decorating Method That is 100% Structural Foam Friendly

At Polyfuze Graphics Corporation we are continually innovating, so it should come as no surprise that our team has once again discovered a breakthrough. Our Polyfuze graphic technology was originally developed for injection molded polyolefins, and is the only plastic decorating method on the market that fuses with polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) on a subsurface level. However, recent application testing just confirmed Polyfuze is also compatible with structural foam!

Structural foam is a popular option because it is economical, and also offers excellent strength to weight ratio. Due to the porous surface of structural foam, which often includes surface imperfections, it is especially difficult to decorate. Polyfuze is a reliable and consistent decorating method for structural foam, which can translate into a reduced scrap rate for anyone decorating such material.

Time and time again, we have found that Polyfuze is a welcomed technology for many companies working to permanently decorate injection molded PE and PP. News that Polyfuze is also compatible with structural foam should come as another added benefit for anyone in the business of plastics decorating.

As a reminder, Polyfuze graphic technology is 100% recyclable, because it is comprised of pigmented plastics, instead of traditional inks. Traditional ink methods degrade over time and fade and weather under environmental elements. Traditional inks can also be removed with various fuels, solvents and chemicals. Polyfuze Graphics™ withstand all of these factors and are truly permanent. They also are the only graphics that fuse with PE and PP to become one with plastic part, instead of trying to “stick” to the surface of the plastic like all other decorating methods on the market today.

Polyfuze Graphics™ can be produced as single or multi-colored (fine detail) graphics, and can be manufactured to meet any required compliances, such as FDA, ASTM, and CPSIA.

And last but not least, the Polyfuze graphic is applied using standard hot stamp equipment, with a required pressure of just 75 psi. This translates to a less tonnage requirement for larger size graphics, which in turn translates to lower capital expense for plastics decorators.
