Today’s modern automotive designs are more challenging and delicate, requiring coating solutions that responds to these needs. Our water-based paints and coatings are developed specifically to fulfill the technical requirements of the automobile industry, providing the following advantages:
Automotive Plastic Paints-Water-Based Laser-Etchable Paints
  • Good adhesion to the plastic substrate*
  • Good abrasion resistance and chemical resistance (petrol, alcohol, water, hand creams, perspiration)
  • Good resistance to various climates (cold, heat, changing temperatures, humid climate)
  • Good laser-etchability; leaves sharp edges upon removal of covering layer
  • Good temperature resistance and color fastness of deeper paint layers
  • High level of opaqueness

 *All automotive interior plastic décor paints can be applied directly on many surfaces and thermoset/thermoplastic materials including ABS, PC, T65, PC, and many more when used in conjunction with a primer that Ferro-Diegel recommends.

Typical automotive interior applications include surface coatings for handles, shades, fascia, dashboards, levers, knobs, buttons and other control components of the cockpit.

Ferro-Diegel water-based paints and coatings for automotive plastics can be applied by robot and flatbed machine laser application, delivering automotive interior decoration down to the smallest detail.
