ABSTRACT
The article focuses on film insert molding (FIM), a process of applying printed clear effective picture to injection molded plastic parts. It says that FIM can be used to apply clear scratch-resistant hardcoats, text, logos and pictures in any color or combination of colors to plastic parts prior to injection molding. The four important steps in FIM process, as well as its benefits, are outlined. Some of the applications of FIM include telecommunications and automotive.
