High aesthetic finish required in multiple colours for plastic housing
Manufacturing highly aesthetic plastic injection-moulded parts has many challenges, starting with mould design, material selection, and processing parameters. Overcoming surface defects and texture variation requires precise cooling, venting, and pigment dispersion.
Where multiple colour finishes are required, spraying finished components can optimise production run costs, and provide greater finish flexibility.
Incorporating a high aesthetic finish in plastic injection moulding offers tangible advantages that extend beyond mere visual appeal, contributing to product performance, customer satisfaction, and business success.

Whether you need multi colour printing and finishing options (chrome plating, decorative spraying, RFI shielding); electronic component assembly, product testing, calibration and final assembly of the product cell; Insertion of externally sourced components, assembly of parts and quality control of finished products – TEX Plastics have you covered!
What are the practical and functional reasons for choosing a high aesthetic finish in plastic injection moulding?
- Visual Appeal and Brand Image: Products with a refined aesthetic finish project a premium and professional image, enhancing brand perception and customer appeal. This can lead to increased sales and market competitiveness.
- Consumer Preference: Consumers are drawn to products with an attractive appearance. Aesthetic appeal can influence purchasing decisions, making well-finished products more desirable to potential customers.
- Quality Perception: A high aesthetic finish is often associated with quality and attention to detail. This perception can positively impact customer trust and satisfaction, leading to repeat business and positive reviews.
- Reduced Post-Moulding Work: Parts with a superior aesthetic finish typically require less post-moulding finishing or polishing. This can streamline production processes, reduce labour costs, and improve overall efficiency.
- Minimised Defects: Achieving a high aesthetic finish necessitates meticulous attention to mould design, material selection, and processing parameters. This focus on quality can lead to fewer defects, reducing the likelihood of rejections and rework.
- Consistency and Uniformity: Aesthetic finishes require tight control over colour, texture, and surface quality. This focus on consistency ensures that each part meets the desired visual standards, creating a cohesive and uniform product line.
- Resale Value: Products with a high aesthetic finish can command higher resale or resale value, making them more appealing to second-hand buyers and contributing to overall market demand.
- Customisation and Personalisation: Aesthetic finishes allow for a wide range of customisation options, such as unique colours, textures, and surface patterns. This enables manufacturers to cater to specific customer preferences and market niches.
- Durable and Wear-Resistant Surfaces: Many aesthetic finishes involve coatings or treatments that enhance the durability and wear resistance of the plastic part. This extends the product's lifespan and reduces the need for frequent replacements.
- Competitive Differentiation: In competitive markets, an exceptional aesthetic finish can set a product apart from similar offerings, creating a unique selling proposition that attracts customers.
