  • Patent number: 10440832
    Abstract: A method for producing a laser-structurable component, wherein an extruded single- or multilayer molded part with at least one laser-structurable layer that forms an exposed surface of the molded part is applied onto the surface of a non-laser-structurable support element. Alternatively, the at least one laser-structurable layer may be back-molded with a non-laser-structurable thermoplastic support element so that at least one laser-structurable layer of the molded part forms at least one part of the surface of the laser-structurable component. The extruded single- or multilayer molded part is deep-drawn into the component. In the process, the laser-structurable layer of the molded part consists of a thermoplastic molding compound consisting of: (A) 30-99.9 wt. % of a thermoplastic consisting of polyamide; (B) 0.1-10 wt. % of an LDS additive; and (C) 0-60 wt. % of an additive material which is different from (A) and (B).
