We have pioneered a low cost method of improving the visual impact of our plastic AM components with a revolutionary colouring process. Our unique process does not change the parts’ functionality and requires no surface dressing, thereby helping to keep the process cost effective (although some parts can be Vibro Finished prior to colouring to give a smoother finish if required by the customer).
We have a standard palette of 10 colours on offer (these are not matched to a specific Pantone or RAL colour):-
- Scarlet red
- Orange squash
- Sunshine yellow
- Spring green
- Baby blue
- Deep blue
- 3T purple
- Fresh pink
- Chocolate brown
As well as using colour to enhance aesthetics, coloured parts are also used in assemblies to give a better view of design intent. Colouring also adds to the resilience of a part that is to be frequently handled, helping to overcome possible discolouration.

Bespoke colours are available for customers with more specific needs.

NB: Unless otherwise stated on our quotation, a permanent surface colouring is applied directly to a ‘grade 5 finish’, ie the part is direct from the machine and blasted but with no additional Vibro Finishing applied.
