Customising The Colour And Texture Of Your Enclosures

Changing the colour of a standard enclosure makes it instantly your own. There are various ways of doing it quickly and easily. One option is to specify a different coloured plastic so the colour is moulded in at the start of the process (see the Special Materials section further down this blog post). But most customers opt for other methods such as lacquering and decor foils.

Lacquering offers a wealth of choice – not just a wide range of RAL and Pantone shades but also lustres and textures. Matt lacquers stop undesirable light reflections; glossy lacquers give a modern sheen. Metallic lacquers enhance aesthetics and perceived value. Textures such as soft-touch velvet add comfort – an important consideration for handheld enclosures.

Other options include antibacterial paint to safeguard your product from bacteria (a key consideration for medical electronics). ESD conductive lacquer (black) prevents electrostatic discharges.
