Q. What is compression molding?
A. Compression molding is a high-volume, high-pressure method suitable for molding complex, high-strength fiberglass reinforcements.
Q. What materials are used?
A. As for the material used, it requires the material that comes in sheet form, such as acrylic sheet, ABS sheet etc. Constant thickness and well blended material from extrusion or casting process for the sheet is required.
Q. Why compression molding vs. other processes?
A. The advantage of compression molding is its ability to mold large, fairly intricate parts. Compression molding produces fewer knit lines and less fiber-length degradation than injection molding.
Any products with contoured plastic surfaces (such as side visors, acrylic photo frames, bonnet guards, etc.) can benefit from compressed molding.
