Minnesota Rubber and Plastics continues to expand its range of overmolding capabilities. These include CAD design engineering support and prototype development to address the challenges early and cost-effectively in the overmolded product planning stages. These validate performance, avoid rework, protect investments and preserve schedules.
The company provides the “just-right” material to accomplish product design goals. By integrating rigid parts with softer materials in one unit, manufacturers benefit, opening a whole new spectrum of product design possibilities.
Substrate materials for overmolding include stainless steel, aluminum, PEEK, and Radel®, to name just a few. By overmolding unique Silicone formulations, for example, features previously difficult or impossible to incorporate in medical product designs become a reality. Many custom Silicone formulations from Minnesota Rubber and Plastics have superior impact resistance and are autoclavable with no degradation to the sealing surface.
Numerous other design benefits are available utilizing Minnesota Rubber and Plastics’ overmolding services. These include mini molding capabilities for miniature components to very large parts, selection from a full range of elastomer material durometers, custom colorization of components, conductive, insulated and implantable materials plus many more.
