PVC Injection Moulding Compounds

Plastic injection moulding is a popular manufacturing process used to produce a wide range of plastic parts and products. How does injection moulding work? Molten plastic material is injected into a mould cavity, allowed to cool and solidify, and then the finished part is ejected from the mould. 

Plastic injection moulding is used in a huge range of industries such as automotive, electronics, packaging, medical devices, and consumer goods. This popularity is driven by the advantages that the injection moulding process offers such as versatility in part design, high production speed, excellent repeatability, and the ability to produce complex shapes even with tight tolerances.

PVC is a popular injection moulding compound due to its unique properties and numerous benefits such as  versatility, cost effectiveness, durability, electrical insulating properties, flame resistance, chemical resistance, good dimensional stability and recyclability.
