Materials for Plastic Molding Processes

AEMT has wide experience manufacturing with the full range of materials that can be heated and transformed into unlimited shapes and forms using our energy efficient manufacturing methods for injection molding and plastics fabrication. Molded materials include: thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and other engineered polymers.

  • High volume, high precision, low cost
  • Replace metals, producing lighter parts
  • Improved fatigue properties over metals
  • Tolerate large deflections without deforming 

Thermoplastics

AEMT has wide experience manufacturing with the full range of thermoplastic materials. These organic materials can be heated and transformed into unlimited shapes and forms using our energy-efficient manufacturing methods for injection molding and plastics fabrication.

Thermoplastics provide a wide range of desired properties and offer many manufacturing and finished product advantages including:

  • High volume & precision, low cost
  • Lighter parts
  • Improved fatigue properties
  • Tolerate large deflections

Thermoset

materials undergo a permanent chemical reaction or curing during the molding process that transforms the resin by creating cross-linked molecular bonds. These unique bonds produce a stronger, more temperature-resistant polymer. AEMT molded thermosets offer customers numerous advantages for their injection molded product applications:

  •  Dimensionally stable at high temperatures
  • Excellent fire performance
  • Corrosion / dent resistant
  • High impact strength and strength-to-weight ratio
  • Multiple part consolidation
  • Chemical resistant, inert to fungus growth

Elastomers

exhibit light weight, elasticity, deformability and strength ideal for manufacturing molded flexible parts. Elastomers offer numerous advantages for product engineering, plastic injection molding and finished product applications:

  • Energy-efficient manufacturing
  • Recyclable, re-shapable materials
  • Withstand temperature extremes without cracking
  • Lighter weight components, lower shipping costs
  • Waterproof, closed-cell structure
  • Superior electro-insulation

Insert Molding

Our experience spans the full range of commodity grade thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and engineered polymers.

Insert molding joins discrete metal, ceramic and plastic components into a single, composite part. Used widely for medical device, automotive and military applications, insert molding expands the capabilities for product design and functionality while offering unique manufacturing economies. Insert molding delivers benefits and advantages including:

  • Lowered manufacturing costs
  • Reduced component size and weight
  • Greater design flexibility
  • Increased product reliability 

Compression Molding

AEMT's indepth product manufacturing experience helps customers meet and exceed their most demanding expectations for custom plastic injection molding, insert molding, compression molding and transfer molding requirements.

Our experience spans the full range of commodity grade thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and engineered polymers.

Compression molding is a high-pressure process ideal for forming complex, high-strength fiberglass reinforcements. This cost-effective method offers advantages for processing large, moderately intricate parts while offering the following benefits:

  • Efficient, low-waste manufacturing
  • Production and labor costs lower than other methods
  • A process ideal for larger, complicated geometries
  • Dimensional accuracy and stability

Transfer Molding

AEMT's indepth product manufacturing experience helps customers meet and exceed their most demanding expectations for custom plastic injection molding, insert molding, compression molding and transfer molding requirements.

Our experience spans the full range of commodity grade thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and engineered polymers.

Transfer molding technology delivers rapid manufacturing using varied reinforcements such as glass fibers to produce both low and high quality products. The benefits of transfer molding include:

  • Fewer and simpler pre-forms
  • Tighter dimensional tolerances
  • Molding of delicate inserts/sections
  • Low cost manufacturing 

Part Decorating / Secondary Operations

AEMT's part decorating and secondary services for our customers injection molded products integrate brand identity, design, info graphics, texture, gloss levels and other surface aesthetics to complete your finished product designs. Along with pad printing, hot stamping and silkscreening disciplines, AEMT part decorating and secondary services offer unique features and benefits to enhance the appearance and performance of your finished product:

  • True 3D applications
  • Second surface/interior graphics application
