The magic of plastic injection molding is that there is a myriad of materials to select from, all with their own unique characteristics. One such material commonly used in injection molding is polyamide – perhaps more widely known as Nylon. This highly versatile thermoplastic boasts an impressive combination of electrical and mechanical properties, making it an ideal material to use in many different industries. To give you a better idea of your options, let’s highlight some of the benefits and challenges associated with the thermoplastic polyamide.[Read more…] about Injection Molding Thermoplastic Highlight: Polyamide
Thermoplastic injection molding is the most common way to manufacture parts. Thermoplastics are polymers that can be repeatedly molten or softened by heating and solidified by cooling—as a physical change rather than a chemical change that takes place during the creation of thermoset materials. It is important to distinguish what type of thermoplastic should be used for the type of product you want us to help you create. Below are the most common thermoplastics used in injection molding.
