During the part design consider the relationship between cost, lead time and surface finish. Typically higher finishes will increase the tooling cost.
Surface finishes play a critical role in both functionality as well as the cosmetic look and feel. Parts that are hidden may not require a surface finish at all, where exposed components might need to be visually appealing.
If your parts will not be visible in the end product a lower finish option is typically selected.
Injection Molding Surface Finishes
Xcentric offers a wide range of materials with multiple surface finish options. Most resins are available in many colors and we are also capable of creating custom colors to match your requirements.
If you are working on a project that may require painting as a final process considering molded-in color can often be achieved for a much lower price than traditional painting labor and material costs. If you must paint your plastic parts select a resin that paints easily and preferably one that does not require surface etching and/or primer.
Xcentric Mold offers a variety of surface finishes to add function as well as cosmetics to your finished plastic injection molded parts. Whether you require a mirror like gloss finish or a textured finish for grip and usability we have the available solution for your plastic part needs.
