Reaction Injection Moulding

Reaction Injection Moulding - Fast, Flexible, Production.Reaction Injection Moulding / PU Moulding is a fast and cost effective method of producing low volume batches of production components. Using silicone, epoxy or aluminium tools customers can have first off components within days, without the expense and delay of full production tooling.

Due to the lower viscosity of the materials used when compared to molten thermoplastics the process can create large, thin-walled and light-weight items with ease.  The thinner mixture also means that less clamping force is required compared to traditional vacuum moulding methods, which leads to lower tool costs and ultimately a lower project cost.

The RIM process offers extremely flexible production opportunities for clients who either require a few off specialized mouldings or production runs of a few thousand. Parts can be fully finished and painted to customer specification.

Testimonial

“I would like to thank you and all your colleagues for all your help this year. It is much appreciated. The large intake manifold, you made for us, greatly helped with our engine development programme and helped us acheive our highest points score in our team’s history in the Formula Student competitions, at Hockenheim this month.”
