Plastic is used in almost every industry, from aerospace innovation and 3D printing to electronics and product packaging. Many applications benefit from the advantages that coatings provide – wear protection, insulation, chemical resistance and improved performance – but plastic presents unique challenges to adhesion:
Heat sensitive plastics
Low energy substrate
Fortunately, at Allied PhotoChemical we employ cutting edge technology, superior production processes and high-quality products to easily overcome these potential obstacles. Our UV coating for plastic guarantees excellent adhesion and top performance for any application.
What Are the Advantages of UV Coatings for Plastic?
There are several reasons opting for custom UV coating service is the best decision for manufacturing:
Improved scratch resistance
Dependable chemical resistance
Immediate quality assurance results
No drying time – better production efficiency
Versatile color and finish options
Tailored product performance
Electronics manufacturers use UV coatings to ensure longevity and functioning of smaller plastic parts, while the automobile industry relies on them to guarantee important plastic components have optimal appearance, scratch resistance and functionality. Ironically, all of these major performance benefits typically also result in lower production costs compared to other options, making UV coating for plastic a cost-effective solution.
When it comes to packaging, the excellent adhesion and visibility of product information on thermoplastic bags and other storage containers is vital for tracking purposes, quality assurance and customer satisfaction. Having access to precise and vibrant inks in limitless colors makes plastic products stand out on store shelves with near photographic clarity.
