Injection Molded Plastics & Injection Molded Plastics Manufacturers
Injection Molded Plastic is resin that has been heated until molten and then forced into a pre-made mold or cavity in the shape of the intended plastic product or object. When the melted plastic has cooled and hardened, the mold is removed to reveal a hard, plastic part in the shape of the mold cavity. Products made from plastic injection molding, or custom injection molding, include a wide range of everyday household items such as mop buckets, plastic containers, screw driver handles and even video game cartridges.
Injection molding can use a wide variety of starting materials, including most polymers. Plastic injection molding gives the injection moulders the freedom to choose exactly what the best material for the final molded plastic part would be and requires a lot of calculation as to composition of the resin as well as temperature and pressure in the mold. All these variables can affect the final quality of the plastic. Injection molding uses thermoplastics, called thermoplastics injection molding, thermoset materials or elastomers, depending upon the intended use of the final product. Thermoplastics and thermosets harden completely after cooling in the plastic injection mould; elastomers however, retain a sense of elasticity and so are used to produce items such as rubber bouncing balls. Other variations of plastic molding, or insert molding, include gas assist injection molding which uses an inert gas, such as nitrogen, to create a hollow portion in the mold, and to force the molten plastic into the mold cavities. Another is reaction injection molding; reaction injection molding machines require one further step which is the addition of a curing agent in the mold. This is required for the specific product material to maintain shape and strength once removed from the mold.
