Dip moulding is essentially a technique for the economical production
of flexible and semi-rigid PVC components. Often used for mass production,
it is particularly suitable for medium and small quantities. A related
but somewhat different technique is used for the production of Chloroprene
and Natural Rubber components.
The process needs only simple aluminium tooling, shaped by machining
or casting, to the internal dimensions of the required moulding. It
is because such tooling is inexpensive by comparison, for instance,
with injection moulding, that small and medium quantities can be produced
economically. Complex shapes can be moulded allowing considerable
design freedom. The natural finish of the mouldings is smooth, glossy,
textured or matt and shows no tool split lines
Plastic Mouldings are the principal custom dip moulder in Europe We
have been a leader in the development of the process and its applications
for over 35 years.We have our own toolroom from which we develop concept
prototypes and manufacture production tooling. The facility is also
equipped with a laboratory and plant to formulate, manufacture and
test our own raw materials.
A substantial number of our employees have worked with us for over
35 years. Consequently, a major asset of our company and available
to our customers, is a reservoir of specialised technical know-how
about the process of dip moulding.
Our quality assurance procedures have been approved by all our major
customers, who include leading names in the automotive, electrical
and mechanical engineering industries.
