Name Title

Vacuum Casting

A fast, cost-effective method of producing low numbers of highly detailed, highly accurate polyurethane components and products with similar properties to injection moulded parts.

Typical applications include clear and coloured containers, lids and fastenings, . Parts can be flexible or rigid and can be overmoulded with rubbers and elastomeric PU. Many of our materials carry flammability ratings and can be coloured and over-mouland are classed as biocompatible.

Vacuum cast parts work exceptionally well for validation and verification prototypes. We have a range of materials able to withstand erosion and depth pressures.

Reaction Injection Moulding

Suitable for prototyping and low volume runs of very large parts. Using a range of polyurethane formulations, RIM parts can be manufactured to meet UL94 – V0 flammability ratings.

The RIM process lends itself well to freedom of design. Parts can have both thick- and thin-walled sections and structural inserts within the same component.

RIM parts are dimensionally stable, durable and chemically resistant. They are tough and yet can include intricate detail. RIM moulds are typically produced using the highly accurate CNC process; or alternatively a 3D printed pattern master is used to produce a silicone mould.

Silicone Moulding

Liquid silicone rubber possesses excellent thermal, chemical and electrical resistance. The quick curing process ensures parts are rapidly dispatched for market focus research, and many prototypes are immediately re-created for end use. Silicone flexibility varies from 25 Shore A to a hard rubber 90 Shore A.  Silicone Moulding can be used key pads, piping systems, gaskets, seals, plugs, diaphragms, manifolds, wire connectors, wheels and lighting assemblies.
