Tech Plaastic Industrie is an industry leader in the manufacture of critical thermoset injection moulded components for the automotive & electrical industries. The infrastructure is designed to suit the requirements of demanding Customers looking for reliable source of moulded components at reasonable prices.
TPI processes both high performance Phenolic engineering compounds as well as general purpose phenolics. Our thermoset injection molding factory is equipped with both horizontal type moulding presses as well as vertical type moulding press for its range of insert moulded components.
Phenolic injection molding is a type of plastic injection moulding that makes use of phenolic which is also called Bakelite. Phenolic is a resin made from aldehyde and phenol. Using phenolic resins has good mechanical strength, and stability. Its also provides high wear and heat resistance, less moisture absorption and is flexible in manufacturing.
The main reason for the increased acceptance in using phenolic resins in thermoset injection molding is its ability to maintain electrical and mechanical properties even at high temperatures. Phenolic, when molded and cured properly can withstand a temperature of around 550 fahrenheit. Phenolic injection moulding finds its application in power steering pulleys, power brake booster valve bodies, brake caliper pistons and solenoid cap.
The irreversible process by which malleable and cold plastic materials are moulded by forcing it into a heated mould so as to make it in any desired shape is called thermoset moulding. The moulded part gets cured by this process and hence cannot be melted again.
Thermosets will be able to withstand high temperatures and retain their shape and strength always. This characteristic is highly beneficial while creating large components and permanent pieces. It can be used multiple times and withstand extreme conditions too.
Thermoset plastics can be used in construction equipment panels, insulators, heat shields, agricultural feeding troughs, disc brake pistons, electrical components and housings, cell tower tops, motor components and circuit breakers.
As a plastic molding manufacturer we offer injection moulding, compression moulding, thermoset injection moulding and 3d printing services.
TPI engineers and designers work closely with our customers to design a part for manufacturability and often make recommendations to improve the part or the manufacturing process for existing parts. We also offer mold flow simulation and analysis to assure that the mold will produce the part exactly as expected. Once final part design is approved, TPI builds the mold for manufacturing.
