You know enough about mold manufacturing using plastics to know that your customers often need products in colors other than white. However, they also want versatile and durable parts regardless of their color. Colored resin is a popular choice for injection molding because it allows you to fulfill your customers’ requests.
Manufacturers use high-quality colored plastic pellets made from polypropylene or other natural polymers to create colored resin. Depending on the application, fabricators also offer color matching for the colored resin to make injection-molded products. Color matching is especially important in automobile manufacturing, where it is better for dashboards, door handles, and moldings to match a vehicle’s painted surfaces.
The addition of color to the resin before manufacturing products prevents your customers from painting the parts before they market them.
The injection molding process includes injecting the colored resin into the preferred mold and then waiting for it to cool and harden. Important features of components made from colored resin include resistance to heat damage and fading, which means they have long-lasting quality.
Your customers expect you to provide them with the best tools possible. In addition customers look for durable tools that will last them for a long time. While many manufacturers fabricate their tools from steel, other materials offer better results. Enhance your tool design process with beryllium copper alloy.
An alloy is a combination of two metals. Beryllium copper alloy is a mixture of beryllium and copper and small amounts of cobalt and nickel. In the tool design process, fabricators typically use injection molds to create products. Beryllium copper alloy’s versatility makes it a great choice for machining and other metalworking. You can use the alloy to make tools in a range of shapes and sizes with tolerance that ensures they work effectively without failing.
Tools made from beryllium copper alloy offer the greater thermal conductivity your customers may require to decrease cycle times. From oil field tools to robotic welding devices, this alloy proves its effectiveness in various applications. Beryllium copper alloy is ideal for plastic injection mold tools due to its resistance to oxidation and corrosion. Finally, devices made from beryllium copper alloy have added non-magnetic qualities preventing components from sticking to each other.
