To improve the durability, haptics and looks of synthetics for car interiors or other applications, Stahl has developed effective In Mold Coating systems. These make it possible to integrate high-performance coating technology into your molding process, which reduces or eliminates VOC dispersion. With our IMC systems, you protect products against UV light, weathering and cleaning products, while you strengthen the flexibility and softness of the substrate.


Effective production with many possibilities

Dashboards, armrest consoles, door panels and steering wheels in cars need to be protected against deterioration by discoloration, weathering and cleaning products. Our aliphatic polycarbonate technology assures long-term durability. In addition, it is a more efficient and safer system with fewer processing steps, which could result in cost savings and a reduction in energy use. If you want to strengthen the chemical resistance even further, add one of our crosslinkers to enhance the coating properties. Whether you use closed or open molds, we provide coatings according to your color references. Even the combination of two colors in one process step and mold is possible.

No additional matting agents are needed for a result that doesn’t gloss up after aging. For interior decorative surfaces, multiple colors can be utilized easily.
