Injection Molding Material

ACRYLONITRILE BUTADIENE STYRENE (ABS) One of the most commonly used materials in injection molding is ABS: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. ABS is a thermoplastic material known for its high impact resistance and toughness. Furthermore, it exhibits good resistance to scratching and rigidity with an excellent dimensional stability. ABS also works well in conjunction with metal coatings due to them being able to adhere strongly to ABS material. Due to it’s thermoplastic properties ABS is easily plastic injection molded. ABS has a low melting temperature and is also an inexpensive material. TYPICAL APPLICATIONS for ABS: Automotive Parts, Household Appliances,  Pipe, Telephone parts, Business Machines, and Medical Products. ADVANTAGES: Good impact resistance, strength, and rigidity.
Nylon injection molding is just one of the molding capabilities you’ll find at leading Polydyne LLC. We are happy to discuss nylon injection molding ideas with each client to ensure the process and materials are an ideal fit for your project. Applications For Nylon Injection Molding Nylon material is used in a large range of different industrial applications because of its impressive mechanical and electrical properties, excelling in toughness, wear resistance and chemical resistance. Nylon injection molding produces plastic parts that are used in countless industries and applications, such as: Consumer apparel and footwear Sports and recreation equipment Industrial components Medical products Automotive products As nylon has great bending strength, it lends itself well for parts that will be intermittently loaded. Furthermore, with the high wear resistance and low coefficient of friction, nylon works well in applications such as slides, bearings and any device that is put through motion.

General purpose grades of polycarbonate used in plastic injection molding typically exhibit Heat Deflection Temperatures of 270°F at 264 psi. Adding glass fiber reinforcement increases the Heat Deflection Temperature by 25°F; increase rigidity but lower impact strength, an important property of polycarbonate in many applications.

Polydyne LLC uses plastic injection molded acrylic for a variety of applications including lighting equipment, housewares and medical devices. Acrylics are synthetic plastic materials which contain at least one derivative of acrylic acid. The most common acrylic plastic is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA).
