Dip Moulding - Plastic Casting

Plastic Casting is a variation of the dipping process generally employed for the manufacture of flat mouldings which require a raised or patterned design on one face only. Mouldings such as the model tyre wheel illustrated can be cast with a surface detailed pattern on more than one face.

By using a hollow cavity tool, typical applications include floor or heel mats for medium quantity production cars and other specialist vehicles, non-slip mats for office machinery, retaining straps, foot pads for gymnasium equipment and many other applications where superior high definition and surface appearance is important.

The majority of castings are manufactured in PVC although other materials such as polyurethane can be employed. Moulding can be produced up to a size of 1m x 1m x 50mm thick. Tooling is either machined aluminium or electro-formed trays embodying the required pattern or surface finish.

Most grades of plastisol can be used in the process. Colour matching services to customers specific requirements are formulated in our own laboratory.
