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 designed and engineered special metal seals for a critical subsea communications application.
