Decorating Plastics: Waterslide Decals

Also called wetslide or water transfers, waterslide decals are a great way to decorate plastic parts. They can be applied to PP, PC, ABS, PET and other plastics and cured to the surface with no paint required.

Waterslide decals can give the look of in-mold graphics without the fallout or rework costs. And because the graphics can be applied later there is no need to choose brand or product mix in the molding process. Artwork and model information follow demand, lowering inventory costs.

Waterslide decals are screen printed, so colors can be vibrant and opaque, include metallics, neon colors and fine details. Digital printing, texture and foil effects can also be included in the decal.
