Consumer electronics isn’t just about products. Whether smartphones, flat screens, or notebooks - the technical possibilities also raise expectations about functionality and design: they are expected to be intelligent, aesthetic, pleasant to the touch, and boast brilliant colors, too. KURZ meets these wishes with the In-Mold Decoration (IMD) process. Extra-thin layers of varnish on the surface make the warmth of wood, the pleasant texture of leather, or the smoothness of metal both visible and palpable. These layers are far less sensitive than real materials. Light or sunscreen, for example, can hardly harm them. The special advantage for manufacturers is that haptic and visual effects are transferred in one single process step. At the same time, the high product and processing quality is kept consistent - with large volumes. Top functionality meets intelligent design.
Sensational reflections combined with color, design, and real chrome looks are the latest trends from KURZ. The incredible design variations offered by indium-based metallization can even be seamlessly and precisely transferred to components up to 1,000 mm wide. Indium has another advantage: It is particularly suitable for Shy Tech designs and 5G technology. Backlighting provides additional orientation and design highlights.
KURZ also thinks sustainably with this decoration. Indium metallization is possible in the efficient IMD process. This wafer-thin real metal layer also does not impair the recyclability of the components and is ideal for finishing recycled plastics.
Smartphones that feel warm and velvety. Leather or wood design with a smooth finish, color gradients with a sturdy grip: with IMD from KURZ you can offer your customers unlimited variety. Design and functionality become one, creating a unique user experience. The soft-touch coatings with different haptic options are durable, scratch- and dirt-resistant, as well as sound-absorbing. Even transparent topcoats can be given a pleasant feel. Various textures that can be incorporated into the coatings further enhance the tangible effect. The times when all artificial surfaces felt the same are over. Let your product speak for itself and take advantage of the opportunities offered by KURZ, with innovative IMD technology. Make consumer electronics an experience and delight your customers. Our design team will accompany you on this fascinating journey.
