Nissha Co., Ltd.

The IMD products Nissha Group provides won the “2022 IMDA Awards” for “Best Use of IMD for Capacitive Touch Applications”. This is the second time Nissha received this award following last year.


The awarded IMD product is a control panel located inside the freezer and refrigerator which a leading global appliance company Electrolux provides to the US market as a high-end model. The panel was highly evaluated for its high level of brushed satin metal appearance with hidden til lit graphics.

IMD (In-mold Decoration) is decoration process which transfers decorations and functions printed on the film to the surface of the resin when it is molded. Nitec Industries, Inc., a Nissha Group company, produced decorative film in Japan and Nissha Eimo Technologies performed molding in US.
Assessment by the IMDA*:
This capacitive touch application is actually located inside the freezer and refrigerator, with a brushed satin metal appearance, hidden til lit graphics and a fingerprint resistant surface. Despite some challenges with film registration on this long part, the geometry and decoration requirements made this a perfect fit for in-mold decoration, delivering a premium look with high durability.

*IMDA: A trade association representing molders, label printers, material suppliers, equipment suppliers and others committed to the development and growth of in-mold labeling and decorating products, technologies, and markets.
