First Formatec introduced a range of Zirconia colors, for injection moulding. This range has been greatly accepted with brown as the most rapid growing color for aesthetical applications.
Ever since this introduction Formatec worked on the next step. Breaking down the limitation of just one color for an aesthetical ceramic component. In 2013 this becomes reality by introducing 2K injection moulding for zirconia. The outcome is a result of combined powder development, injection moulding and sintering research.
The technology in highlights
- Full zirconia components
- Multiple colors available
- Applied on flat and curved surfaces
- Regular high density part >99,9%
- No color diffusion between the colors
- Available in polished and non polished finishing
- Alternative to PVD coating / lacquer
Start using this innovation to add everlasting decorations to your design
By bringing this technology to the market Formatec aims for applications that are currently produced by using ceramic with PVD or lacquer coatings. This technology will advance on wear and can be applied on complex curved surfaces. More interesting are designs that are not feasible with the traditional techniques. Larger components fully 2K designed can offer stunning designs.
Formatec is taking development orders for this technology from the spring of 2013.
Formatec is present at the EPMT / EPHJ | 11 – 14 June | Booth G62
