The proven “e-coloring” lets the color penetrate deeply into the plastic part. Instead of being applied onto the sintered part, the dye penetrates the material, meaning the part’s geometric, mechanical and thermal properties remain unchanged while at the same time achieving absolutely uniform color coverage. The color is lightfast as well as water, UV and abrasion resistant. It can also stand up to sweat, which is important for eyeglasses and jewelry and results in excellent skin compatibility. At the highest quality level, even strong cleaning agents will not flush out the colors.
Since 2004, CIPRES has used laser sintering to produce small series, functional parts and prototypes made of plastic. In 2006, “e-coloring” was introduced as the first high-quality process for the subsequent coloring of plastic parts. Thanks to its experience, CIPRES Technology Systems is a sought-after partner who helps companies enter the world of 3D laser production, optimize existing laser sintering systems and design components made of plastic.
