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.
