IMD/OMD Applied Material
In Mold Decoration (IMD) and Out Mold Decoration (OMD) process enables the decoration for not only plastic products but also glasses and many other materials. In the pursuit of an eco-friendly environment, Compo-SiL®silicone-based vegan leather provides a variety of decorative appearance and tactile effects, as a new highly durable material choice and a replacement for thermoplastic film.
Compo-SiL® IMD/OMD Industrial Applications
IMD and OMD process are widely used in almost every industry. Here are some examples for the applications:
- Automobile industry: Interior decoration
- 3C product: Phone case, mouse, AR/VR glasses, phone, TV, laptop, home appliances panel, etc.
- Medical equipment: EEG, ECG equipment, hospital beds, etc.
Compo-SiL® is a sustainable alternative material for IMD/OMD process. With silicone, the process can be a step towards eco-friendliness. Furthermore, Compo-SiL®enhances the flexibility of product designs due to silicone. properties.

Customized and functional surface
Compo-SiL®provides various designs to the designers with customized colors, patterns, and tactile effects. We can also achieve a variety of surface appearance, such as metallic, matte, and 3D lines of pearl, leather touch, and wood trim effects. Moreover, thanks to silicone features, Compo-SiL®surface is made available with antibacterial, antifungal, and more other functions when requested.
With Compo-SiL®technology, silicone adhesion and bonding issues were resolved, which made it possible to use IMD/OMD process with silicone films, and bond to other surfaces easily.
Compo-SiL®films can be made highly transparent, which is required in IMD/OMD parts for light transmission or light guiding applications in the automotive industry. For example, automotive interior roofs (aircraft, car, and buses roofs) require certain patterns with light transmission in specific areas which could be achieved by Compo-SiL®.
Instead of using real wood or metal, Compo-SiL® is able to provide these visual textures and tactile effects, making the product more light-weighted, softer and durable than plastics. Also, the manufactures can tune the hardness of the film if needed.
