Aztec Plastic services includes a variety of decorating processes to make your products even more distinctive and original. We specialize in decorative plastic parts by pad printing, hot stamping, painting and plating, as well as plating for EMI and RFI shielding.
Pad Printing is one of the most versatile decorating methods. It is the ideal method to apply text onto an item in small spaces. With smaller runs, pad printing is a great way to saving money on production costs, especially with one or two-color applications, though you can achieve the use of multiple colors and intricate applications. This is traditionally used to apply important product and warming information to products.
Hot Stamping is also a cost-effective method of decorating plastic items. In this process, a stamping die, heated to the proper temperature, is pressed against a plastic object, which transfers the pigment from the foil to the part. Foils can come in a variety of colors and finishes, including metallic, mattes and high gloss. Hot Stamping is a dry process, which means clients will ultimately save money, thanks to quick production and few packaging costs.
Plating is a process that adds metallic coatings to the thermoplastic parts. This is an economical alternative to decorating metal products.
Electronic devices emit electromagnetic waves that can infer with other devices. This is called Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). EMI and RFI Shielding, which is usually a coating applied to plastic electronic casing, protects devices against such interference. The product is usually an acrylic-based spray, but it can also be a paint or a coating.
