Injection Moulding  - HEXPOL TPE GMBH


In the injection moulding process TPE pellets are fed into the machine through a hopper and then into a heated barrel. The heat from the barrel turns the material into a liquid resin which is then injected into a closed mould under high pressure. After allowing the molten polymer to cool, the finished part can be removed from the mould. Injection moulding is a high-volume, high tooling cost process, the advanced properties of our TPE compounds deliver short cycle times allowing parts to be produced at a rapid rate. The information below is intended as a general overview, settings may vary depending on the specific grade selected. Please CONTACT US for detailed processing information Settings Equipment Conventional injection moulding machine Compression set At least 2:1. Special screws with short sections and higher compression ratios (3:1 to 4:1) may be good at low screw speeds Shrinkage Between 1.0% and 2.5% depending on the grade, type of application and location of the gate.
