Compression Molded Shapes
Not every application demands high volume production runs of standard materials.
Smaller quantities of high-performance compounds may be required. In these cases, the economics and flexibility of compression molding may apply.
Modern Plastics offers custom compounding and compression moldings of specialty high – performance engineering plastics.
Near-net-shapes are available in a number of custom formulations based on materials such as Techtron® PPS, Torlon®, Ultem®, Vespel® and PEEK®, Valox®, Cycolac®, Lexan® and many high-performance GE Plastics materials in common shapes that include rings, rods, plates, tubes and discs.
Many of Modern Plastics’ materials can be direct-formed for higher volume, smaller cross section components. Direct forming, while similar to compression molding, allows for tighter tolerance applications such as small thrust washers or seal rings.
