nothing is impossible

Greater design flexibility for plastic injection moulding: Eschmann Textures has an innovative technology CERAtex which enables different designs to be produced from the same tool. In conventional production methods the tool determines how the stucture looks. Things are different with this process: By applying a heat-resistant, almost wear-free ceramic coating to the tool surface, plastic components can be produced in a very wide range of different looks. This provides you with a completely new level of flexibility that gives you an extra dimension of design creativity. CERAtex adds a ceramic coating to create the surface texture.

This technology enables users to enhance an almost infinite range of products by adding customised surface textures. This ceramic process facilitates true-to-original design reproduction at unbeatably short reproduction lead times. CERAtex can be removed at any time from the tool without leaving residues and be re-applied without the need for additional polishing, modified wall thicknesses or similar.



  • ranges from one-off custom designs to small batches

  • plastic injection moulding (incl. polypropylene, PU etc.)

CERAMIC Coatings

sub-products of CERAtex graining process, CERAmat and Gcoat, are flexible coating processes in which microporous ceramic particles are applied to surfaces. This technology can significantly reduce shine to a nearly lacquer-like finish without changing the surface’s basic texture.
These coatings can enhance or completely replace conventional gloss reduction processes such as Eschmann Textures’ MatDown.
Use CERAmat to create elegant product finishes that look sophisticated and high-class and/or to reach very low gloss.
Use Gcoat to reduce material flow drag and uniform gloss across the extension of your product surface.


Properties and Benefits

  • original equipment or optimisation of virtually all tool dimensions
  • short processing times
  • suitable for low layer thicknesses and low draft angles
  • low coating temperature means no thermal impairment of tool steel
  • coatings can be flexibly adjusted to fit the requirements of plastics
  • suitable for conventional cleaning agents and can easily be removed
