High Gloss Painting (Class A, automotive quality)

Universal Plastics offers class A automotive quality high gloss painting services, with six state-of-the-art paint booths (including two high gloss paint booths) capable of handling part sizes up to 11’x11’x3′. We also do QC inspections with CMM Color conformance with a Datacolor 600. Our painting service can match colors exactly to your specifications and will provide your products with the highest quality finish. Universal Plastics’ in-house painting facility can provide any color or finish clients require – including EMI/RFI shielding and water-borne paint. Our in-house finishing means that we assume responsibility for products from design to finish. Universal Plastics also offers screen-printing (even on textured surfaces), and PAD-printing as well as hot-stamping in single or multiple colors.

Anticipating increasing customer demand for Universal Plastics’ high-gloss painted parts, we completed construction of three new state-of-the-art paint booths. We have also created a dust-free environment to ensure the highest quality of our painted finishes. Shown is an image of a DNA Sequencer manufactured and wet painted by Universal Plastics.

Universal Plastics’ highly experienced manufacturing team can execute complex product assemblies with ease to meet all your specifications. Higher level assembly of plastic and metal parts, molded and thermoformed components, and parts from various suppliers, can all be handled seamlessly. The example shows water testing equipment manufactured and assembled by Universal Plastics.

Universal Plastics’ drape forming capabilities enable us to design and form optically clear enclosures of a wide range of shapes and sizes, based on your specific needs. The image here is a test chamber manufactured and drape formed by Universal Plastics.
