About injection molding plastic
What Products are Made from Plastic Injection Molding?
Plastic injection molding is a highly effective manufacturing process for products in many different industries. Here are some of the most common examples:
Consumer products such as storage containers are often manufactured with injection molding using durable, low-cost plastics such as PVC.
Aerospace parts such as pump gears, turbine blades, and valve seats can be made with injection molding using engineering plastics such as PAI and PEEK because these plastics can withstand extreme temperatures experienced by airplanes.
Electronics parts such as connectors and wire cables are often made with overmolding using static dissipation plastics such as ABS blends.
Parts used in medical devices, monitor support arms, infusion pumps, and more are made with injection molding using plastics such as PEEK, polycarbonate, and polystyrene because they can be easily sterilized and they don’t absorb moisture.
Injection molding can be utilized to make parts in the energy industry such as insert molded valves, seals, pipe liners, and more with heat resistant plastics such as PEEK and PTFE.
Injection molding is often used in the automotive industry to make parts such as door panels, engine components, and much more. Common materials used for these parts include glass-filled nylon, PBT, PPE-PS, and polyether imide.
