Outstanding in terms of part-to-part dimensional stability and creative design concepts
Reaction Injection Moulding (RIM) is a highly versatile process. With a range of polyurethane systems available products can be solid or hollow, rigid or flexible, impact-absorbing or insulating foam, or any combination of these attributes.
Apart from having such a broad spectrum of physical characteristics, RIM products can also vary widely in size, wall thickness and geometry.
The benefits of RIM moulding with Tecni-Form:
- Low tooling costs even for large parts
- Speed from concept to manufacture
- Easy design trials
- Superb quality
- Flexibility with shapes and wall thickness
- Complex geometry
- Low residual stress
- Massive range of finishes
- In-mould coating options
- Low volume economics
- Low environmental impact
RIM’s versatility also allows for designed-in thermal, electrical or acoustic insulation, buoyancy, fibre reinforcement and very high stiffness to weight ratio. These are just the headline attractions of RIM, but depending on design considerations, many other benefits, such as deep-draw moulding capability, insert encapsulation and multiple wall thickness can also weigh heavily in favour of RIM.
