During the part design consider the relationship between cost, lead time and surface finish. Typically higher level finishes like A3 or A2 will increase the tooling cost significantly.
Surface finishes play a key role in both function as well as the look and feel. Parts that are hidden in the assembly may not require a surface finish at all. In contrast, 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 surface finish options. In addition to surface finish, we can add custom colors to virtually any material we can also custom match colors from a sample.
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.
