Marking of Plastic
In this process the color is actually altered to provide a contrasting mark without actually removing any of the surface. This is far superior to paint. The mark will never wear off!
Marking of plastic may be used in the following applications:
- Markings on dials or switches
- Text or logos on promotional products
- Switches that require backlighting. A good example of this is automotive switches on dashboards, windows, and locks. The plastic is marked in a way that the color is altered and the backlight is allowed to shine through allowing the switch to be illuminated.
