What kind of plastic materials can we injection mold for you?

There are hundreds of injection molding materials available in the world, and definitely on mainland China. Our company has the most experience with engineering thermoplastics and  general purpose and engineering thermo plastics and elastomers .

However sometimes our customers request  less common used plastics such as WPC and rubber alike plastics such as  Tpo/Tpe’s . ( Thermo elastic plastics or thermoplastic elastomer)

Note:   if you wish a specific material, which isn’t available in CHINA , we can import it to our mold factory.

We injection a lot and different kind of materials, basically plastics can be divided 6 main thermoplastics groups;

There are several types of thermoplastics, each with its unique characteristics, making them suitable for specific applications. Hereunder, we will describe the six groups of thermoplastic materials our company can inject for you:

  1. General-purpose materials,
  2. high-temperature plastics,
  3. engineering thermoplastics,
  4. flexible thermoplastics,
  5. biobased materials,
  6. and wood-plastic composites (WPC).

General-purpose materials or high-temperature plastics are the most commonly used thermoplastics.

They are characterised by their excellent mechanical properties and can withstand high temperatures, making them ideal for various applications, including automotive parts, consumer goods, and electrical components. Usually these have a reasonable price per KG. The most common know materials in this group are PP and ABS.

Engineering thermoplastics

Engineering thermoplastics offer improved strength, durability, and thermal stability compared to general-purpose materials. They are used in high demanding applications such as medical devices, aerospace components, and electrical equipment.

Flexible thermoplastics or thermoelastic plastics have a unique property of being able to be stretched and molded into various shapes. They are commonly used in the automotive industry for interior parts such as dashboards and seat covers.

Biobased materials are environmentally friendly thermoplastics made from renewable sources such as plants and other organic materials.

They are used in a wide range of applications, including packaging, disposable utensils, and agricultural films.

Wood-plastic composites:

Wood-plastic composites (WPC) such as those from Jeluplasts are a combination of wood fibers and plastic resins. This group is a young generation of

They offer excellent durability, moisture resistance, and are a cost-effective alternative to traditional wood products. products made of WPC have a wood radiation, but still can be complicated like injection molded part. The injection mold design of WPC components is almost similar as general or engineering thermoplastic parts’ mold- design.

Finally, 2k or 2-component injection molding is a process used to combine two different thermoplastic materials into a single product. This process allows for the creation of products with unique properties, such as improved durability, flexibility, and strength.

In conclusion, understanding the various groups of thermoplastic materials and their unique properties is crucial when selecting the right material for a specific application. Triple-c has experience in each group and can advice you. Each thermoplastic group offers different characteristics, making them ideal for different applications, and can be a cost-effective alternative to traditional materials.

  1. General purpose materials or high temperature plastics
  2. engineering thermoplastics
  3. flexible thermoplastics or thermo elastic plastics
  4. Biobased materials.
  5. WPC or wood plastic composites such as those from Jeluplasts.
  6. 2k or 2- Components injection molding .

general purpose or high temperature plastics

All our machines are built for the processing of technical and high temperature plastics; Obviously, the ‘general purpose’ plastics are no problem:

  • Polyetheretherketone (PEEK)
  • Polyethersulfone (PES)
  • Polyetherimide (PEI)
  • Polysulfone (PSU)
  • Polyphenyl sulfone (PPSU)
  • Polycarbonate (PC)
  • Styrene acrylonitrile (SAN)
  • Acrylic nitrile styrene acrylate (ASA)
  • Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)

Plastic injection molding with modern injection molding machines.

For the injection molding of your product, modern injection molding machines are available at our production facility, including several horizontal machines and vertical machine for the injection molding of plastic parts (PCBs, gold contacts, metal parts, etc.)

If you find it interesting, we will gladly lead you around once to explain the different machines.

Are you starting the first production in our injection molding plant?

We can imagine that you want to be present at the injection molding factory at the start of the first production of your product. You are welcome to join us at the start-up. Always a great moment for you as a customer and for us as a producer!

Customer-specific assembly

After the production we go one step further if you wish. Do you have ideas about how you want to assemble, process, pack or stock the product? We can also tailor this for you to a complete solution. For instance we assembled sports products, parts for toilets and plastic toys

Injection molding is done entirely at TRIPLE-c  co-operation factories, so in these factories are equipped with modern injection molding equipment. As an experienced and recognized injection molding company, we are happy to take your product idea into production. Mainly our  production consists of the realisation  or injection molding of mostly plastic products. Plastic injection molding at Triple-c  is especially suitable for small to medium series (50-500,000 pieces) and can be from 0.1 to 1500 grams . 

Usually large parts are also made by general purpose plastics or Tpe/r/o’s read hereunder more about how to make large parts..
