Impress: our powder in-mold coatings can be used to enhance the aesthetic and functional properties of SMC and BMC moldings. Impress is sprayed into the hot mould prior to pressing and molding. It has the advantage of lower reject rates, a reduction of processes and handling steps and a more simplified coatings process compared to post-painted parts. Consequently it has a lower ECO footprint and is more sustainable.

Impress is designed for high hardness (4H – 5H). Features include:

  • excellent chemical resistance (xylene, toluene, MEK, gasoline, motor oil)
  • superior adhesion, chip and abrasion resistance properties
  • significant thermal shock and humidity resistance capabilities
  • greater cost efficiency
  • increased productivity (saving time)
  • reduced rejections
  • better process stability
