Techniques For Molding Pump Components

Injection molding is a process for high volume forming of high quality thermoplastic parts. The part cost is low, but the initial mold costs can be high. The reinforcing materials for injection molding are short strand fibers (0.06 to 0.50 in or 1.5 to 13 mm long) and are glass, graphite, mica, and so on.

Compression or transfer molding uses thermoset resins and can make small quantities of larger parts. The mold costs are less, but the part price is usually more due to trimming and secondary machining steps. The reinforcing materials for these processes can be continuous or chopped mat strands, as well as woven mats and blankets. These long strand fibers give exceptional physical properties to the final part.
