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 […]
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 […]
Injection molding flash is a part defect you can't ignore. Hand trimming is slow and expensive. Cryogenic deflashing is fast, consistent, and cost-effective.
What Is Residual Mold Flash? Flash is excess plastic or rubber material that forms on the surface of molded parts. Flash, or flashing, affects the part’s surface finish and may also interfere with sealing. Flash is usually a cosmetic defect, but molders want to avoid the appearance of thin, unwanted lines that can suggest poor […]
