Polypropylene Deflashing and Deburring

Polypropylene is a hard, heat-resistant plastic that supports molding and machining. With its relatively low cost and light weight, this thermoplastic material is injection molded to create products ranging from caps, closures, and cups to dishwasher components and automotive dashboards. In addition, polypropylene is molded and machined into medical products such as orthotics and surgical […]

Cryogenic Deflashing for Overmolded Electrical Connectors

Deflashing for Overmolded Connectors Nitrofreeze provides deflashing services and equipment for overmolded electrical connectors. Overmolded electrical connectors protect wires, cables, sockets and other electrically conductive components against environmental conditions such as dust, moisture, weather, and heat. Overmolding, an injection molding process, molds a polymer such as Bakelite over these electrical components. Bakelite combines high electrical […]

Dry Ice Cleaning for Mold Tooling

Dry ice cleaning is helping rubber and plastic molders to improve part quality and reduce operational costs. Dry ice cleaning, or dry ice blasting as it’s also known, removes fouling and residues from injection molds and other types of metal tooling. This safe, clean process won’t harm mold surfaces or their finishes and eliminates time-consuming […]

Deburring Machined PEEK Plastic Parts

PEEK is a high-performance plastic that can be machined into tight-tolerance parts with excellent wear and abrasion resistance. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) comes in medical and industrial grades, both of which support CNC machining operations such as milling and drilling. Machined medical-grade PEEK is used in implants, dental healing caps, and spinal fusion, trauma fraction, and orthopedic […]

Deflashing Glass-Filled Nylon Parts with Nitrofreeze® Technology

Glass-filled nylon parts are injection molded into precise shapes for industrial, medical, electronic, automotive, and aerospace applications. Nylon, a generic name for a category of synthetic polymers, support the production of strong, durable parts; however, nylon typically has poor resistance to heat and ultraviolet (UV) light. The addition of glass fibers to nylon improves these […]
