Molded plastics have a wide range of commercial and industrial applications—from the smallest, most intricate electronics to heavy machinery, plastic parts are everywhere. There are many specific molding processes to choose from, and each manufacturer must choose the most efficient way to mold these plastic parts for their products. One of the most popular manufacturing
What Products Are Made from Reaction Injection Molding (RIM)?
Reaction injection molding (RIM) is a low volume manufacturing process used to produce high-quality polyurethane (PUR) plastic parts for a wide range of products in many industries. Often confused with injection molding, RIM is a low pressure, low temperature liquid injected molding method that creates strong, lightweight, durable, large and or highly detailed parts in
Polyurethane Reaction Injection Molding
When you need lightweight, flexible, resilient, and durable structural parts that aren’t expensive to produce, polyurethane (PUR) is a choice many would recommend. This organic polymer is a highly-resistant elastomer that you can use to create some of the most intricate designs for an array of industries. It’s formed in a polyurethane injection molding process
Reaction Injection Molding vs Injection Molding
There are many different ways to manufacture plastic parts. Reaction injection molding (RIM) and Injection molding are two popular alternatives; however they seem to often get confused. Let’s take a look at what they are and what their differences are. What is RIM Molding RIM Molding is the process of producing parts out of thermoset
