Injection Moulding Materials

Selection of the proper material is crucial to part production. Designers should consider the mechanical characteristics, moulding properties, and cost of the resin used.

Application-specific requirements will always drive the need for particular material properties like tensile strength, impact resistance or ductility.

Successful designs for injection moulded parts are also built on an understanding of process-related issues such as the ability to fill the mould, tendency to flash, ease of part ejection, and the potential for warp, sink or void creation. Part geometry can be used to help address some of these issues, but just as material properties are an important factor in meeting the requirements of a given application, they should also be considered to ensure the mouldability of the part.

Customer-Supplied Resins
Generally, any conventionally injection mouldable material can be specified. If the material is relatively exotic, and we don't have it in stock, there may be an extra charge for us to procure a minimum quantity. Delivery could also be affected if the material is not readily available from the resin distributors. We are happy to work with specific resins you already use and would like to supply to us.
