This intricate injection molding process combines multiple materials into a single-part or product. Our team of experienced engineers and technicians can assist in part-design, tool-design and high-volume production of over molded parts.
This application typically involves a more rigid base component over molded with a thinner, thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) material. Some benefits of over molding include better product performance, superior consumer appeal and opportunities to lower production costs. Our team of experienced engineers and technicians can assist in part-design, tool-design and high-volume production of these types of plastic parts.
Common Over Molding Applications
- Two-tone Aesthetics
- Adding Grips
- Gaskets and Seals
