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 […]

Nitrofreeze® Proof of Concept: Deflashing Molded Plastic Clips

The Challenge Injection molding flash, or flashing, is excess material that is forced out of a mold cavity at the parting line or ejector pin locations. This surface defect mars the finish of molded parts and can interfere with their performance. Traditionally, injection molders remove flash by hand. However, manual trimming is slow, time-consuming, and […]

The Five T’s of Cryogenic Deflashing Molded Parts

The Cryogenic Deflashing Process Cryogenic Deflashing is a process designed to remove molding flash created during the molding process. Molding flash can be found on molded parts along the parting lines, gate vestiges, and where pins and slides are located. In order for molded parts to complete their desired function, the residual molding flash needs […]

Remove Mold Flashing From Injection Molded Parts

Batch Deflashing to Remove Mold Flashing We often hear from molders and OEMs that they have mold flashing after their injection molded plastic and rubber parts are manufactured. There are many ways for mold flashing to form on your parts during the injection molding process. Surfaces where sliding and moving parts meet will wear with […]
