Plastic Casting Process

Posted on Friday 13th March 2015 00:03 by PlasticMouldings

Here at Plastic Mouldings one of the many processes we carry out is the process of plastic casting. This is a variation of the dipping process and is generally employed for the manufacture of flat mouldings which require a raised or patterned design on one face only. Mouldings such as a tyre wheel can be cast with a surface detailed pattern on more than one face.

 

By using a hollow cavity tool, typical applications include floor or heel mats for medium quantity production cars and other specialist vehicles, non-slip mats for office machinery, retaining straps, foot pads for gymnasium equipment and many other applications where superior high definition and surface appearance is important.

 

These castings are manufactured in PVC with the moulding produced up to 1m x 1m with various thickness. The tooling is usually machined from aluminium and embodies the required pattern of the intended finish. Most grades of Plastisol can be used in the process.

 

We offer colour matching services to customers' specific requirements which are formulated in our own laboratory.
