Tech/Engineering - Sports / Fitness / Recreation / motocross helmet
English term or phrase: in-mold skin
Again, from the user manual for a motocross helmet; phrase appears in the list of technical features for this particular helmet and is never mentioned again.

This particular feature pertains to the inner shell of the helmet which is made of extruded polystyrene. I sort of suspect that it might have to do with the manufacturing process. The list says "inner shell contains" and then goes on to list a proprietary inner substructure and this proprietary in-mold skin.

This is another question I've sent to the client, but I thought perhaps someone had run across this term before.

Bei dem In-Mold Verfahren handelt es sich um eine feste Verbindung zwischen der lackierten
glatten Helmaussenseite, und dem Innenmaterial (Polyester) Bei dem Verarbeitungsprozess
wird die formbare Innenmasse mit Wasserdampf und unter gewissem Druck fest in die
Aussenschale eingebracht. Bei anderen Helmen wird die Aussenschale meist nur aufgeklebt.
Das In-Mold Verfahren gibt dem Helm eine bessere Stoß- und Bruchfestigkeit.
