DyeMansion’s sophisticated surfacing technology delivers a homogeneous surface quality, transforming porous, vulnerable powder-based plastics into long-lasting, finished products.
Fast, cost-effective and compatible with every geometry. This special blasting process reaches almost all areas of the part without any material removal.
The improved surface quality of the parts enables a consistent distribution of the color. Our automated process achieves this homogeneous surface quality at a cycle time of only 10 minutes.
Shiny surfaces and pleasant haptics enable an improved look & feel for powder-bed 3D-printed plastics, which is the key to 3D printed products.

Powershot S finished + colored
Our Powershot S blasting process prepares your parts for a good and homogeneous coloring result. The open pores of the polymer parts are homogenized with a special blasting media through the blasting nozzles. The process is clean and powder-free thanks to the ionized flat-jet nozzles. Due to the rotation of the basket inside the blaster, all parts are processed evenly and surface roughness refined. Depending on the desired effect the Powershot S blasting process can be repeated one more time after the coloring cycle.
The combination of blasting and ionizing nozzles are optimized to achieve this powder-free process. A high-performance, adjustable cyclone separates the blasting media from other particles and keeps the cabinet clean.
Our shot peening process is compatible with every geometry and reaches almost all areas of the part in a few minutes. This way it’s possible to finish the surface of almost every powder-based plastic part and to achieve a more homogeneous surface quality than on an untreated part.
Using our shot peening process, the surface of AM plastics gets a matt glossy look. A product property that increases the visual quality of your parts dramatically.
Due to the closed pores after the blasting step, the parts become more dirt- and scratch-resistant. This is crucial for products that are constantly exposed to water and dirt (e.g. eyewear, sporting goods).
The parts show much better haptics and can be worn directly on the skin.
