Liquid Components Create Quality RIM Parts

Posted by on August 20, 2013 | Comments Off on Liquid Components Create Quality RIM Parts

When using the Reaction Injection Molding  (RIM) process 2 liquid components are combined, to create a chemical reaction. When this chemical reaction takes place robust plastic parts can be molded. This low volume molding process uses low pressure and low temperatures, which provides freedom when encapsulating parts such as metallics. The resins we use have the viscosity similar to skim milk; standard injection molding uses pellets. The RIM process uses these liquid components to fill out the mold completely,  to achieve high quality plastic parts.
