Plastic Injection Moulding Materials

HDPE

HDPE is a low cost thermoplastic with good impact and chemical resistance. It is used in a wide variety of applications, including plastic bottles, cutting boards, and piping.
Appearance
Black, white

PA

PA (or nylon) plastic injection moulding material is a versatile, durable, and flexible material that can be used in a great variety of applications. Due to its high melting point, it is an excellent alternative to metal components in high-temperature environments, like car engines and other types of high-friction machinery.
Appearance

ABS

ABS is one of the most popular material options for injection moulding. It is an extremely rigid, versatile thermoplastic with fantastic chemical and weather resistance. It is often paired with a chrome plated finish to make high quality automotive accessories and other components.
Material Reference
ABS, ABS+GF, ABS+UV resistant, food grade ABS, PC+ABS
Appearance
White, Black, Cream, Milky

Painting All Black, Pantone/RAL colours Painting is a method of adding colour to a part. It is often used to increase the aesthetics of a part.
Chrome Plating All Silver-gray metallic Chrome plating is used to increase corrosion resistance or surface hardness of a part, ease the maintenance process or for purely decorative purposes.

About The Process

The injection moulding process requires an injection moulding machine, raw plastic material, and a machined mould. The raw plastic material is first melted in the injection unit then injected into the mould — most often machined from steel or aluminium — where it cools and solidifies into the final plastic part.

Why Use Rapid Injection Moulding

Injection Moulding vs Vacuum Casting
Vacuum (urethane) casting offers a lower front-end cost with a higher unit price, while injection moulding demands a higher front-end cost, but a significantly lower unit price. With higher volume production runs, you will simply not see the same ROI with vacuum casting than you will with injection moulding.

Rapid Injection Moulding is Used For
Producing low-volume (up to 100,000) quality production parts and prototypes from real materials. Rapid injection moulding is used for prototyping, bridging and low volume production run parts in less time and a reduced cost than full production mould.

Advantages of Injection Moulding

  • Cost effective
  • Highly efficient and reliable
  • Real production grade materials
  • Offers flexibility (in materials and colors)
  • High quality parts

Injection Molding FAQS

Injection moulding is a mature manufacturing process that allows for plastic parts to be produced in large volumes. The process involves melting plastic pellets that once malleable enough, are injected at pressure into a mould cavity, which fills and solidifies to produce the final product.

Rapid injection moulding is the process of making injection moulds for prototyping, bridging, and short production run parts in less time and a reduced cost than full production moulds.

Typically, the tooling costs is between $2,000 – $10,000. However, depending on the complexity of the project, type of tool, and other factors, it can go well over $10,000.

The unit cost is what makes the initial investment in injection mould tools worthwhile. You can expect the cost per unit to range between a few pennies to a few dollars.

Injection mould tools can last between 100 to over 100,000 and even 1M+ cycles. The life span of an injection mould depends on the mould material, mould structure design, maintenance, time between production runs and operating conditions.

Injection moulding is one of the most popular and versatile manufacturing technologies for producing mid-to-high volumes of plastic parts. It is widely used in many industries, including:

  • automotive
  • agriculture
  • consumer goods
  • consumer technology
  • medical & pharmaceutical
  • robotics
  • toys
