In-Mold Labeling and In-Mold Decoration for Custom Injection Molded Parts
In-mold labeling or In-mold decoration is an integrated decorating technique that bonds the label with the part during the injection molding process. This process eliminates post-production applications that utilize adhesives or print decoration techniques to decorate the part. In-mold decoration utilizes the injection molding pressure and temperature to bond the label with the resin as the part is molded.
One major benefit of IML is the ability to extend the longevity of the label or decoration to match the lifetime of the product. With other decoration techniques the design can wear, peal or scratch when the product is used – not with IML. In-mold labeling can also benefit the manufacturing process by reducing design defects, placement variation, post-production time, and reduce waste.
