Artisan™ Pre-Colored Thermoplastics for Premium Finishes
Beauty and efficiency come together in this next generation of vibrant, pre-colored, engineered polymer solutions. Artisan pre-colored thermoplastics are scratch-resistant formulations that mimic the look of paint and can be used as a paint replacement for superior results. Delivering minimized scratch appearance and corrosion resistance, these materials include two added benefits when replacing paint: they reduce energy use by eliminating the secondary painting process, and they eliminate VOC emissions.
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, ABS formulations expand customizable colors to include metallic effects and offer enhanced scratch and chemical resistance for use in electronics, home appliances, and cosmetic packaging.
Additional grades for other key industries and applications are in development.
