1. In-Mold Decorating

In-Mold Decorating refers to a decorative sheet that is set inside a mold, to which a resin is injected, so as to solidify the resin and simultaneously to adhere the decorative sheet to the surface of the resin, i.e., that is capable of injection-molding and decorating a resin simultaneously, a process for producing the decorative sheet, and an injection-molded article with a decorative sheet using the decorative sheet.

As a conventional process for producing an injection-molded article with a decorative sheet, it has been known that before placing a decorative sheet inside a mold for injection molding, the sheet is three-dimensionally processed by vacuum molding or the like, punched into a desired shape, and then interfit within a depression or the like in the mold for injection molding, followed by cramping the mold, and a molding resin is injected into the cavity to adhere integrally the simultaneous molding-decorative sheet to the surface of the molding resin. As another process, it has been known that a simultaneous molding-decorative sheet is placed inside a mold for injection molding, and then three-dimensionally processed by vacuum molding or the like to follow the depression of the mold for injection molding, and after cramping the mold, a molding resin is injected into the cavity to adhere integrally the simultaneous molding-decorative sheet to the surface of the molding resin.
