How Success Is Driven By Innovation & Company Culture

Polyfuze Graphics Company & News

Innovation is Built Upon 30+ Years of Experience

In early 1983, our parent company, Mold In Graphic Systems® revolutionized the way rotationally molded polyolefins would be decorated. After extensive research and development, the first Mold In Graphic® transfer was successfully created, allowing Windsurfer America® to be the first company to utilize this exciting new graphic for the 1984 Summer Olympic Games. And so began the company Mold In Graphic Systems®. Since it's beginnings, Mold In Graphic Systems® has been the leader of permanently decorating polyethylene and polypropylene products used throughout the world. The tradition of innovation led our Research and Development team to develop a new set of products and to form a sales & support team that focused it's technology specifically for the Injection Molding Industry! This new team focus became Polyfuze Graphics® Corporation and led to the development of Polyfuze Graphics® for Injection Molded plastic products.

Rehrig Pacific, Rehrig Pacific Company
Unarco Industries changed their current system to Polyfuze because they could get the multi-color graphic they needed with the durability that will last.
I have tried for years to get a multi -color permanent logo on our garbage toters, but had settled for a decal instead. Polyfuze Graphics™ helped us to fulfill this need. Not only is our Trash Taxi logo in full color, but also permanently welded into the plastic of our cart. The fine line detail in the graphic far exceeds any hot stamp. Thank you Polyfuze Graphics™ Corporation and Otto Environmental Systems for making this hope a reality.

When Permanent Really Means Permanent.

As featured with the Society of Plastics Engineers : ANTEC® 2015 Proceedings of the Technical Conference, Orlando, Florida

White Paper by Jason Brownell, Polyfuze Graphics™ Corporation, Clarkdale, AZ


The intent of this paper is to demonstrate the truly permanent nature of a new patent protected heat fusion process for the transfer of graphics to polyethylene, polypropylene and other olefin products. As stated in Wikipedia, 'Heat fusion (sometimes called heat welding or simply fusion) is a welding process used to join two different pieces of a thermoplastic. This process involves heating both pieces simultaneously and pressing them together. The two pieces then cool together and form a permanent bond. When done properly, the two pieces become indistinguishable from each other. Dissimilar plastics can result in improper bonding.'

This paper will:

  1. Explain the difference between this heat fused graphic, known as Polyfuze, and other labeling processes such as In-Mold Labels (IML), Hot Stamp (Foil), Screen/Pad Printing and adhesive backed stickers.
  2. Define the environmental significance of each of these decorating methods vs. heat fused graphics.



A Brief History On Flexible Plastics

Stretching The Limits of Plastics Decorating

The decoration of plastics has been stretched to its limits over the course of history. We have seen the progression of decorating methods for injection molded plastics change from a slower manual process, to a machine and assembly line driven method. As machine assembly lines approach true efficiency and the speeds needed for profitable production, we can't help but notice a critical flaw. Why aren't the limits of plastic decorating being stretched?

To help answer this question we must look at the history of different plastic materials. We must examine what current methods are being used for decorating and the challenges that other methods face. Polyfuze Graphics® are stretching the science of permanent labeling on flexible olefins to a whole new level.

Otto Environmental Systems North America Inc. uses Polyfuze Graphics™ from Polyfuze Graphics™ Corp.

Otto Environmental Systems Waste & Recycling Cart uses Polyfuze graphicsBackground:

Otto Environmental Systems North America, Inc. is a leading waste and recycling container manufacturer that provides a full-circle approach to the management of container activity in the solid waste & recycling industry. Otto serves communities with injection molded, sustainable cart and bin solutions through both private and municipally based collection systems that contain all waste streams including trash, recycling, yard waste, document security, etc. Otto is committed to the continual improvement of its manufacturing processes and technology development.

The Challenge:

Otto's customers value their branding, which proudly identifies their containers displayed at the curb of each resident's house or inside the offices of commercial buildings. Whether it is a city emblem or private company logo, Otto wants to offer its customers the highest quality graphics display available. In addition, the graphics on the side of these waste and recycling carts need to be extremely durable due to the aggressive weather conditions in which the carts exist. Otto needed a graphic that would stand up to not only the weather but also chemical solvents from washing and physical interaction from manual and automated collection trucks. Unlike stickers, they sought a graphic that won't crack, curl, pull up, deteriorate, fade or fall off and unlike hot stamps, Otto wanted to remove the limits of a single color foil graphic.

The Solution:

The Polyfuze Graphic offered Otto multi-color resin graphics. Otto outfitted its existing hot stamping machines with the technology requirements to fuse the graphic with the container. Through heat, pressure, and dwell time, the full color resin graphic is literally fused with the plastic cart—becoming part of the cart itself. Otto's ColorFUSE cart branding technology, which utilizes Polyfuze Graphics, allows multi-colored branding for cart bases/lids. Fine detail appears sharp and crisp. Otto's customers can choose from one to any number of colors and design a full color resin graphic that accurately displays their branding in a high quality format and can count on the most durable graphic available.

'Polyfuze Graphics™ Corporation has proven to be an invaluable business partner when it comes to decorating Otto containers. The Polyfuze Graphic meets or exceeds the durability standards, appearance requirements, and UV tests of the plastics industry. As importantly, as a customer, the folks at Polyfuze Graphics™ Corp. consistently provide support above and beyond our expectations, helping us with issues and working with our staff to train on the Polyfuze Graphic process. It is exciting to be able to offer our customers multi-colored graphics and the ability to stand out in a white foil world!'

-Kathy Tudor,
Graphics Designer, Otto Environmental Systems North America, Inc.


Recently introduced by Otto, ColorFUSE cart branding (utilizing the Polyfuze Graphic) revolutionizes cart decorations! Customer reactions have been extremely positive. Throughout the history of the plastics industry, manufacturers have been trying to permanently decorate polyethylene. Because the resin graphic and the plastic cart become one during the application process, the graphic has the same characteristics as the base material. This means unsurpassed durability and minimum color fade. The graphic cannot be scratched off, peeled off, or chemically removed; it is essentially tattooed or fused into the plastic. Polyfuze Graphics™ Corp. continues to provide Otto with creative ideas on applications and the successful implementation of full color resin graphics.

Unarco Industries LLC uses Polyfuze Graphics™.

Unarco Industries uses Polyfuze graphicsDue to regulations requiring use of 2 color labels for safety information on all shopping cart flap installations, Unarco Industries LLC changed their current decorating system to Polyfuze Graphics™ because they could get the multi-color graphic they needed with the durability that will last.

The durability was also an issue because of the use of handi-wipes at grocery stores being used on the seat flaps.  The wipes cleaning agent was removing the warning label thus making the warning obsolete.  The Polyfuze Graphics cannot be removed with handy-wipes, nor solvents, nor chemicals, nor pretty much anything else.
