Thermoset plastic molding video
Thermoset plastic molding is a molding process not offered by many of Metro Mold & Design’s competitors. Thermoset plastic molding has been around for years, but Metro Mold & Design has found new ways to apply thermoset plastic molding. Metro Mold & Design has discovered innovative ways to utilize thermoset plastic molding, and has invested in new equipment for thermoset plastic molding. We have thermoset plastic molding capabilities from 80 tons up to 800 tons, and our 800 ton thermoset molding press is one of the largest presses used in the U.S. fuel cell industry.
Thermoset Plastic Insert Molding
Thermoset plastic molding is well suited to products that must be strong, rigid, and withstand severe environments or conditions. Over the years, Metro Mold & Design has thermoset plastic molded a wide range of products including fuel cell plates, electrical enclosures, dental equipment, and many more. We offer 3 kinds of thermoset plastic molding: transfer, compression and injection thermoset plastic molding.
We have used many materials in thermoset plastic molding including sheet mold compound (SMC), bulk mold compound (BMC), thick molding compound (TMC), and granular materials. These types of materials provide the durability that thermoset plastic molding is known for. Products formed using thermoset are so durable they can withstand chemicals and extreme climates and temperatures.
