Thermoplastic resins form chemical bonds called polymers when utilized in the plastics molding process. The bonding of the various types of molecules involved in the polymer chains dictates the type of characteristics the plastic will exhibit.
The molecular bonding weakens when the plastic resins are heated in the molding machines. The result is a very viscous liquid which can be injected into a molding tool. Once the plastic cools the polymer chains solidify, giving you a plastic part with the desired specifications.
Here is a complete list of the resins that are used at Lomont Molding:
- High Density Poly Ethylene
- PBT / PET
- PES / PSU
