Products manufactured from multiple materials with powerful molecular bond
Replaces high volume component assemblies in one process - reduction in parts required and installation is streamlined
Cost reductions as parts produced in single manufacturing tool
Complete seal design service from experienced application engineers using the latest 2D/3D design and simulation software
2-Shot moulding optimises the co-polymerisation of hard (or soft) plastics and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE’s) and allows us to design and manufacture complex, multiple material parts for our customers to perform a sealing function.
We utilise the 2-shot moulding manufacturing method to produce engineered parts that perform a critical sealing function.
Our 2-shot moulded products replace high volume metal or plastic- to- rubber component assemblies that are processed via chemical or mechanical bonding by using adhesives or over-moulding.
We use the following thermoplastic and plastic materials for our 2-shot moulding production process:
• Styrene Block Copolymers (TPE-S)
• Thermoplastic Polyurethane Block Copolymers (TPE-U)
• Copolyesters (TPE-E)
• Copolyamides (TPE-A)
• Olefinic Thermoplastic rubbers (TPE-O)
• Polyamide (PA/Nylon)
• Polybutylene Terephtalate (PBT)
• Polypropylene (PP)
The end result of the 2-shot moulding production process is a high integrity seal product with a powerful molecular bond, reduced production cycle times (as many additional processes are removed from the production line) and comprehensive cost reductions as all parts are produced in a single manufacturing tool.
We designed and engineered PTFE seals for slip ring systems and contactless rotary joints for the reliable transfer of power and media.
We developed a rotary seal for a prototype fluid separating device used for research purposes with the potential to develop the unit for use on an industrial scale.
We provided an engineered sealing solution for our customer Supply Plus Ltd; a manufacturer of delivery systems for oil based fuels for household heating systems, and the supply and dispense of diesel and aviation fuels.
