Custom OEM Remote Control Features and Options- main features page
|The exterior portion of the remote control can be modified in a varity of ways. Typically, color and texture are the most common ways to modify a remote control enclosure when using an off the shelf (pre-existing) mold. These enclosure modifications make the remote unique for your specific application.|
The remote control case and enclosure color can be changed to match your design requirements. Typically, the standard remote control enclosure color is black, both for low volume purchases or, higher volume purchases with no additional costs. We can use a standard color for the enclosure, or match your Pantone color requirements.
Color pigments can either be mixed with the plastic, or, applied to the outer case similar to spray painting.
Additional color modifications such as adding metalic paint flecks can be used as well.
Case/Enclosure Color Examples
Several processes are available to add texture to the remote control enclosure surface; Hot Stamping and Soft Touch.
HOT STAMPING TEXTURIZING
is a dry printing process. In hot stamping, a metallic or color pigment
is transferred from a roll of foil to the surface of the remote control
by way of heat and pressure. A metal or silicone rubber die, heated to
a range of 150 to 200°C (302-392 F) presses onto the plastic object
through a colored foil. The heat and pressure releases the foil to the
surface of the remote to form a permanent bond with the remote control enclosure.
Hot Stamp Texture Example
|SOFT TOUCH TEXTURIZING
Soft Touch adds a velvet, silk or rubber feel to the enclosure. Soft touch is a special textured spray paint applied to the exterior of the remote control prior to assembly. Many colors, as well as clear, are available. Soft touch improves the durability of the surface of the remote control as it is both scratch and mar resistant.
