In-Mold Coatings

TradenameChemistryDescription
GENGLAZE™ EC-2447 OTH

Heat-activated in-mold coating designed to enhance the surface of molded parts.

GenGlaze EC-2447 in-mold coating surface finish is incorporated during compression molding instead of being applied separately. It is environmentally friendly as it does not contain solvents (100% solids), and reduces the number of surface finishing steps and manufacturing costs.
