Polyethylene Deflashing and Deburring

Polyethylene (PE) is the world’s most commonly used plastic with applications ranging from consumer packaging to wire jacketing and medical products. There’s more than one type of polyethylene, however, and this polymer is divided into different types of materials based on the density of the plastic and the branching of the molecular structure. Each type […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why Medical Injection Molding Uses Cryogenic Deflashing

Medical injection molding supports the use of a wide variety of plastic and rubber materials. Examples include PEEK, polycarbonate, and LSR – just to name a few. During the injection molding process, excess material known as flash can escape the mold and mar part surfaces. The causes of flash are numerous and include parting line […]
