Delving into the world of compression molding, this article provides comprehensive insights into the applications and materials associated with this versatile process, as highlighted in the article “Applications of Compression Molding” on IQS Directory. Compression molding finds practical application in the production of various thermoset products, as well as rubber, thermoplastics, and polymer composites, making it in demand and prevalent across different industries.
This molding technique proves ideal for manufacturing products with generally flat or solid, flat-surfaced characteristics. It is widely employed in the production of kitchenware, including plastic utensils, utensil handles, and knobs, as well as automotive parts like fenders and casings for engine components. Additionally, compression molding is utilized in the manufacturing of computer and gaming equipment, such as keyboards, mouse, and joystick covers, along with medical accessories like syringe stoppers and other plastic and silicone components.
The article further details the materials used in compression molding, with a specific focus on thermosets—plastic materials that undergo irreversible chemical reactions during hardening, rendering them non-recyclable but suitable for specific applications.
