What is the best plastic to be used for plastic injection moulding?

When selecting the right plastic, you need to consider the function and environment of the final product. All materials come with strengths and weaknesses. So, what do you need your material to have? For instance, strength, durability, flexibility and colour can all vary. Therefore, you need to consider different options. Finally, you need to compare material prices and their characteristics with your budget. If you need help choosing the right material, please get in touch today.

What are the differences between casting and moulding?

Casting will usually involve metal, whereas moulding is focused on plastics. However, both are melted materials which go into a die or mould to create the final form.

What plastics can be used in injection moulding?

Whether for the medical industry or automotive applications, orthopaedic or sports applications, cosmetics, packaging for foodstuffs or other industries our materials processes can meet your specific requirements. There are literally thousands of different plastics that can be used for injection moulding.
