Micro molding often involves exotic or highly engineered compounds called thermoplastic resins. Accumold is accustomed to working with materials such as PEEK, PEI (Ultem®), carbon-ﬁlled LCP, or glass-ﬁlled nylon. Soft durometer or elastomeric resins also are common. Our experience using these materials in micro molding maximizes the performance of the resin/part design combination.
Our extensive experience working with various thermoplastics makes us experts on exactly how to match up the proper material to the appropriate part geometry, robustness and performance.
When pushing the limits of molded plastic parts the material selection process often goes beyond the datasheet. Knowing what materials will work in any given situation is an invaluable part of our 30-year history molding thermoplastics in micro spaces.
