Thermoset Plastics Custom Molding

Thermoset Plastics Custom Molding

Since 1957, AKRON Porcelain & Plastics Company’s engineers have designed hundreds of multi-cavity production tools that currently produce complex parts on a mass-production basis.

Thermoset materials from AKRON Porcelain & Plastics Company differ from Thermoplastic molding compounds due to a change in chemistry that occurs during the cure portion of the molding process. In short, the material “sets” up and “kicks” over into a different chemistry that provides the desired molded part characteristics as stated above.

AKRON has the equipment, design expertise for both parts and tools, and plant capacity to handle any of your Thermoset molded plastic needs. Thermoset Plastics continue to be very cost-effective on a cost-per-cubic-inch comparison to other plastic raw material selections.

Thermoset Plastics

Thermoset Plastic molding compounds were developed primarily to satisfy the following molded part criteria:

  • High heat resistance while maintaining physical strength properties
  • Chemical resistance
  • Electrical insulation (arc & track resistance)
  • Dimensional stability
