Pigmented Plastic fuses color into injection molded products.

January 19, 2015

Used for decorating PE and PP plastic products, Polyfuze is composed of pigmented plastic that withstands all wear testing and is 100% permanent. Multi-colored technology can be applied using traditional hot stamp machinery and fuses or welds into PE/PP plastic product as permanent part of product itself. Able to be recycled with PE/PP plastic products, polymer-based graphics solution can be manufactured to comply with FDA, ASTM, CPSIA, RoHS, and REACH requirements. Read More
