“How do I do injection moulding?”: A video guide to choosing the right thermoplastic

05 November 2020

These days often the first thing we do when considering a new project is to search for a “How to do it” video. Using their experience in the electrical/electronics, production, assembly and installation industries, Essentra Components provides a new video guide on thermoplastic moulding. 

The multi-faceted team at Essentra Components frequently work on co-operative developments with customers and is delighted to share their engineering insights. In particular, when you’re selecting a thermoplastic for a new component, there are lots of parameters to take into consideration. So, how should you approach the problem?

In this video, the team’s Divisional Process Development Manager, Chris Butler, offers his advice on the factors to think about when selecting a material for a new part, including:

• The amorphous and semi-crystalline structures of the thermoplastics

• The high temperature, engineering and commodity classifications of thermoplastics

• The environmental conditions to which the final part will be exposed.

By explaining each of these factors and considering the application of the final component, Chris gives an experienced manufacturer’s insight into selecting the right thermoplastic materials for injection moulded components.

Further information on Essentra Components products can be found on the Essentra Components website.
