XtraForm Films

MacDermid Enthone’s hardcoated films enable our applicators to produce high quality automotive parts. The XtraForm films have a wide range of characteristic finishes to both harmonize and tailor cockpit interior design, functionality and decoration. Our XtraForm process, a variant of the Film Insert Molding (FIM) process, is bespoke to our XtraForm range which includes the addition of UV curing after the forming stage, delivering exceptional strength and durability to the processed formed part.

Our proprietary XtraForm process and surface technology bring attractive, durable scratch and chemical resistant components, delivering unrivaled performance.

 

XtraForm Gloss

XtraForm Gloss is a formable hardcoated high gloss finish film, on a polycarbonate base, designed for deep draw 3D Film Insert Molding (FIM) applications using the XtraForm process. XtraForm Gloss forms down to 50% of original thickness and can be used to produce parts with sharp radii (2 times films thickness). Matt base variants are best for automated handling.

It is ideal for surfaces requiring high temperature resistance and hard-wearing properties with glossy styling.

XtraForm Antiglare

XtraForm Antiglare is a formable hardcoated textured film, on a polycarbonate base, designed for deep draw 3D Film Insert Molding(FIM) applications using the XtraForm process. This exciting technology allows images to be seen without the distraction of surface glare from bright lights or the reflections of moving objects. Our textured surfaces give high quality optics (an exceptional combination of gloss, clarity and haze) and haptic (feel). It is possible to have antiglare surfaces of 15 to 75 gloss units.

Ideal for dashboards and display units with high performance characteristics.
