  • In-Mould Decoration of Plasticsby J.C. Love; V. Goodship

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2002; US$ 144.00

    Many plastic components need to have a surface finish applied before use. This can act as a decorative layer, a protective layer, to smooth out surface defects, or to alter surface properties (for example, to enhance adhesion). If this surface effect is applied during the moulding process, it can reduce time, space, material and machinery requirements.... more...
