High transparency offered in special film displays

A newly developed inmold decoration (IMD) film offers outstanding transparency and is easy to process and assemble for displays on such consumer products as mobile phones, PDAs, and medical instruments. The film protects the plastic surface without detracting from the sharpness and clarity of the display. Two different IMD films have been developed: Premium T-O is flexible and can be used on a wide variety of substrates, and Preimium UV is a special hardened material that is designed for applications requiring especially high chemical and scratch resistance. The films consist of a protective lacquer and carrier film and are, during the inmold injection molding process, applied to the part needing protection. Upon opening the mold, the carrier film is removed and the protective lacquer remains on the display to ward off abrasions. By combining IMD technology, injection molding, surface protection, and decoration, only one projection set is necessary. Leonard Kurz GmbH & Co. KG, Fürth, Germany. +49 911 71410; www.kurz.de
