Study, development and testing of a styrene-based polymer for the realisation of aesthetic manufactured items.
Study aimed at users of styrene-based plastic polymers for aesthetic manufactured items. There are low gloss (opaque) and high gloss (very glossy) materials. Those who work in the cosmetics sector today have very high aesthetic needs, so much so that when they use opaque products they are forced to glaze the pieces after the moulding phases.
Formac has developed the study of a dedicated compound which, while making it possible to obtain the same final gloss characteristics (low gloss), features good printability and makes it possible to obtain very good final aesthetic conditions that avoid glazing. The technical solution proposed by Formac entails huge economic savings both on the cost of glazing and on the handling costs of the manufactured goods, it is also an ecologicaland sustainablesolution that avoids the use of solvents necessary for glazing.
