FAQ – Namebadges by Fattorini
Our very first plastic namebadges we designed were moulded for us by a specialist. In the 1960s we purchased some moulding machines and have been moulding our name badges and or fittings ever since. We can mould at a colour of your choice. Our Birmingham factory help us with the tooling – so all UK made.
Yes. We can regrind and remould most of our plastic badges and use the reground plastic for other coloured badges.
As best we can. We actively discourage the use of adhesives & foam pads for assembling the fittings and discourage acrylic doming. Foam pads and doming materials make the badges impossible to recycle. Our printing is robust enough not to have an acrylic dome, and our fittings are attached ultrasonically, without the need for adhesives or alternative materials.
Can you make name badges using Anti-microbial plastics?
We can mould badges using anti-microbial plastics as we already do for some NHS trusts.
Colour is not affected
Do you use biodegradable plastics?
We can but you are limited with your colour choice. Vibrant colours can contain toxic metal oxides and if the polymer is made to be biodegradable then these oxides leak into the environment. A common colour “bright white” contains Titanium oxide which is poisoness to marine life. If bright colours are required, then best to re-cycle
