rapid tooling

Rapid tooling

Fast and cost-effective process for creating aluminum or steel injection molds. Ideal for rapid prototyping needs or validating product concept for production.

Overmolding

Overmolding is a unique injection molding process that combines two or more components together. It is the best practice for the production of multi-color and multi-layers products.

Plastic Injection Molding Materials

Injection molding has the most variable options for materials, colors, and configurations when compared to CNC machining or 3D printing. Here are the materials RapidDirect provides for injection molding services.

Tooling materials

Before injection molding process starts low or high-volume production, a high tolerance CNC machined tooling is needed. Most commonly used materials include:


Tool Steel:
P20
Carbon Steel:
S50C
Aluminum:
5052, 6061

Plastic materials

Plastic injection molding service comes with a wide range of materials with different properties, including impact strength, rigidity, thermal resistance, chemical resistance, etc.

 

  • ABS
  • Nylon (PA)
  • PC
  • PU
  • PMMA
  • PP
  • PE
  • HDPE
  • PS
  • PC
  • PVC
  • PEEK
  • POM

Additives and fibers

Standard plastic materials may not meet custom injection molding parts requirement. In this case, additives and fibers can be added to improve aesthetic and functional properties, providing additional features for your injection molded parts.

 

  • UV absorbers
  • Flame retardants
  • Plasticizers
  • Colorants
  • Carbon fibers
  • Glass fibers

Injection Molded Parts Surface Finishes

For most of the injection molded parts, no post-processing is needed. This is because the mold itself are usually finished to different levels and directly affect the surface finish of molded parts.

Glossy

A grade finishes are made using a diamond buffing process and yield shiny and glossy surfaces.

SPI Standard:
A1, A2, A3
glossy finish

Semi-glossy

B grade finishes use grit sandpaper to produce parts with a slightly rougher finish than grade A parts. Products that undergo B grade finishing have a matte surface texture.

SPI Standard:
B1, B2, B3
semi-glossy finish

Matte

C grade finishes use grit sanding stones to produce a rough, uneven surface. Products that undergo C grade finishing have a matte surface texture.

SPI Standard:
C1, C2, C3
matte finish

Textured

D grade finishes use grit and dry glass beads or oxide to produce a very rough textured finish. Depending on the type of material used, products can have a satin or dull finish.

SPI Standard:
D1, D2, D3
textured finish
