Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting heated and mixed material, such as glass and plastics, into a mold where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity. This is the perfect time to have your desired color be a part of the material itself, rather than added later.
Spray coating a container offers the ability to create a customized color, design, texture, or all – on either glass or plastic. As the name suggests, in this process containers are sprayed to attain the desired effect — from a frosted look, a textured feel, a single custom color background for further design finishing, or in any conceivable design combination with multiple colors, fades or gradients.
This technique replicates the look of clean chrome on containers. The process involves heating a metallic material in a vacuum chamber until it starts to evaporate. The vaporized metal condenses on and bonds to the container, which is being rotated to help ensure uniform application. After the metalizing process is completed, a protective topcoat is applied to the container.
Hot stamping is a technique in which colored foil is applied to the surface through a combination of heat and pressure. Hot stamping produces a shiny and luxurious appearance on cosmetic tubes, bottles, jars, and other closures. Colored foils are often gold and silver, but brushed aluminum & opaque colors are also available, ideal for a signature design.
Hydro-graphics, also known as immersion printing, water transfer printing, water transfer imaging, hydro dipping or cubic printing, is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. The hydrographic process can be used on metal, plastic, glass, hard woods, and various other materials.
This decorating technique is another way of applying silk screen. The ink is transferred to the part through pressure and a heated silicone roller or die. For multiple colors or labels with half-tones, heat transfer labels can be used which will provide color quality, registration and competitive pricing.
In the cosmetics, beauty, and personal care business, packaging is also about fashion. UV coating plays a significant role in making your package standout on the retail shelves.
Whether it is a frosty texture or a shiny surface, coating gives your package a certain attractive look.
This spray gives a soft and smooth coating to the product which is highly addictive when touched. Soft Touch is very popular for baby care and skin care products to give that touch me feeling. It can be sprayed onto most products including the caps.
EMBOSSING & DEBOSSING
Embossing creates a raised image and debossing creates a recessed image. These techniques add branding value to the package by creating a unique logo design that consumers can touch and feel. This effect is created with a custom tool.
