Pre-Colored High-Gloss Polymers for Paint Replacement

Artisan™ Pre-Colored Thermoplastics for Paint Replacement

Achieve the Look of Paint

Beauty and efficiency come together in this next generation of vibrant, pre-colored, engineered polymer solutions. Artisan pre-colored thermoplastics are high-gloss, scratch-resistant formulations used as paint replacement for superior results. Delivering minimized scratch appearance and corrosion resistance, these materials include two added benefits: they reduce energy use by eliminating the secondary painting process; and, they eliminate VOC emissions from paint.

A fresh alternative to painted metal or plastic parts, Artisan thermoplastics provide chemical and scratch resistance, weatherability, and UV stability for long-lasting aesthetics. Available in a range of colors, the impact-modified nylon 6 formulation is customizable to serve a variety of consumer applications, including powersports, lawn & garden, and marine. Additionally, an ABS formulation expands customizable colors to include metallic effects and offers enhanced scratch and chemical resistance for use in electronics.

Additional paint replacement grades for other key industries and applications are in development.
