Improved gloss gives a deeper black
An ultra glossy plastic part brings high perceived value and premium quality to your product.
Gloss improvement for commodity resins up to 60%
ABS: 53 Gloss Unit vs 85 Gloss Unit with Roctool
Black intensity improved ABS: ΔE > 0.43
The black intensity is measured according to the CIE color spaces which demonstrates an important improvement with ΔL > 0.42 (+/-0.2 is usual color tolerance)
BAS Black/Color depth results
Both high and low gloss in one shot
Roctool Technology allows to combine gloss and matt finishes in one operation. Whether it is your choice of style or practicality, it can be done in one shot.
Reducing secondary operations improves process cost and timing
Secondary operations such as paint represent a significant impact on the production planning and budget. Those secondary operations are no longer needed, you can get a high definition black part directly from the mold.
