In-mold decorating (IMD) or in-mold labeling (IML) is a process for decorating or labeling injection molded plastic parts or components during the plastic injection molding cycle.
In the in-mold decorating (IMD) or in-mold labeling (IML) process, a preprinted label or decorated film is inserted in the open plastic.
injection mold and held in place via vacuum ports, electrostatic charge or other method. The plastic injection mold is then closed and the plastic resin injected to mold the part, encapsulating the decoration or label permanently within the finished injection molded part.
With in-mold labeling (IML) and in-mold decorating (IMD), labeling and decorating are complete in the plastic injection molded process, so no secondary operations are required, eliminating post-molding labeling and decorating labor and equipment costs and time. In addition, design and graphic variations are easily achieved by simply changing to different label films or graphic inserts in the same part run.

 

In-mold decorating (IMD) and in-mold labeling (IML) advantages include:
1,High quality and visually impressive graphics
2,Ability to use flat, curved or 3D-formed labels and graphics
3,Elimination of secondary labeling and decorating operations and costs, since injection molding and labeling/decorating are accomplished in one step
4,Elimination of adhesives with ability to apply labels and graphics on plastic in one step, unlike pressure sensitive labels
5,Ability to apply labels and graphics on plastic parts and containers'sides and bottoms all in one step, unlike pressure-sensitive labeling
6,Label inventory reduction
7,Ability to achieve high abrasion and chemical resistance using special hard coatings
8,Easy design variations by changing labeling film or graphic inserts, even in the same part run
9,Continuous image transfers with high positioning tolerances
10,Wide range of colors, effects, textures and graphic options
