In-Mold Coatings (IMC)

Synthomer is an early founder and innovation IMC leader in high-performance primer and appearance coatings applied during the molding process of plastics, sheet molding compound (SMC), and composite components. Synthomer GENGLAZE material technologies are used for automotive, heavy truck, marine, and small part applications for nearly 40-years and latest innovations are being adopted in construction building materials, the hospitality supply industry, and every day commercial products.

Tradename Chemistry Description
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.
