Developments in Automotive Applications of Hot Stamp Foil 750948

Hot stamp foil is being used to provide a color, a woodgrain or a metallic effect on hard surfaces, both exterior and interior. Quality and economy are achieved in areas ranging from a fraction of a square inch to 4,500 square inches. The technology now includes a system of applying a bright chrome foil to the soft Polyurethane front and back ends of automobiles. Other developments include foil application to .015″ to .030″ ABS sheets, a new foil for thermoformable material, and the in-mold application of foil.
