Roctool’s green innovation enters the beauty world – PCD 2020

28 January 2020

Roctool, renowned for its technology allowing the obtention of high-definition surface quality in injected plastics, especially on the automotive and hi-tech markets, is introducing Roctool Beauty Solutions, bringing the world of beauty packaging an innovative technological solution that is cost-effective, offers premium esthetics and most of all, superior sustainability credentials.

Roctool makes it possible to produce plastic parts with unequaled surface quality, avoiding secondary operations (such as painting or decoration), reduces the thickness of parts by improving the material flow, all thanks to their patented high heat molding technology. Roctool works in partnership with brands to meet their expectations regarding costs, operating times and environmental commitment.

Roctool’s technology is used predominantly in plastic injection, blow molding and compression molding. It is suitable for most plastic resins, and offers ultra-premium surface qualities.

The process of material transformation lies between the thermal exchanges created between the mold and the material, and Roctool has developed an ultra-fast induction heating process in order to replicate the surface of the mold directly on the injected part.

Roctool technology overcomes several challenges around “high definition plastic,” pushing the level of mold replication to the maximum.

For example, a PCR ABS resin molded with Roctool technology offers a gloss unit (GU) of 85 and texture replication of 98%, compared with a GU of 53 and 45% replication that are possible with conventional molding.

Luxury and sustainability

Roctool’s technology offers the beauty market two-fold benefits: it is both eco-friendly and ultra-premium.

  • Roctool Beauty Solutions are suitable for most resins: standard, recycled and bio-sourced, including the most innovative resins on the market. Roctool continues its research and is collaborating with external partners to acquire the data essential to reach optimal quality.
  • By obtaining high surface quality and accurate mold replication, Roctool’s technology eliminates the need for secondary operations with a harmful carbon footprint such as coatings/varnish, paint or films.

“Our technology allows no compromise between luxury and sustainability. Today, the two must go hand in hand. As such, we are pushing our research in several areas: with designers from around the world, suppliers of innovative materials, and of course with our customers, whose expectations we share. We are well aware that our industry has entered a new era, a challenge we are committed to overcoming every day,” says Mathieu Boulanger.
