D. Moore and Associates is committed to providing the highest degree of service between our valued customers and manufacturers. We realize you may have application and product questions. We established SHOP TALK as a RESOURCE to address your concerns. To help us better serve you, please fill in the following:
Q1: We are a Tier 1 supplier of plastics to GM and have been requested to install warning labels on the exterior wall of an injected visor. GM has requested a label molded into the plastic as opposed to engraving or glue do you know of this process? Adhesive and heated labels wear off over time?
A1: Basilius Plastics recently conducted a trial on a new in-the-mold label, which combines with the molded plastic part when heated. The end result is a label that wont peel or fade. The label process combines at the molecular level to become part of the plastic with no apparent label lines or marks on the surface available in any finish from glossy to matte.
Q2: Our customers require all E-coated stampings adhere to the new GM-Hex Free requirements. Does your E-coater meet the new specs?
A2: Yes, the new requirements are part of the new EPA push towards environmental friendly coatings which went into effect last year.
Q3: We have a GM fuel bracket which requires Plastisol Coating, however, we don't need the entire part coated. Can you provide partially dipped, or angled dipped parts? Is dipping less expensive than powder coating?
A3: ISP currently coats fuel brackets for major fluid handling OEM's and we can design inexpensive tooling to meet the various angles specified, or partially coat a bracket or part. Compared to powder coat or E-coat, ISP's dipping process can save 25-40%.
