Reaction Injection Molding

Reaction Injection Molding (RIM, also named Low-Pressure Injection Molding) is an ideal process to low volume manufacturing the large plastic parts quickly and economically. Firstly, the liquid bi-component polyurethanes are injected into a mixer at certain amount ratio and meanwhile mixed well by the mixer, then the mixture is injected into the tooling cavity quickly at room temperature and low pressure to form the parts.

The fairly low viscosity of the bi-component polyurethanes delivers high flowability that allows for the low injection molding pressure as well as temperature, which brings the feasibility of low tooling performance. So our RIM toolings are mostly made of epoxy resin and silicone rubber (sometimes aluminum or ABS) instead of mold steel.

The core advantage of our RIM process is the extremely competitive tooling cost, the disadvantage is the part price since costly material and surface finishing. Which means more big size of the part, more competitive the RIM tooling cost, this is why our RIM is very suitable for low volume manufacturing the large plastic parts, such as automobile bumpers, large housings, big covers, etc. Insert molding and overmolding are available for our RIM.

We are respected in RIM industry in China, the RIM service we send out to global market are quick, economical and quality that are proven by the customers used our service, especially from automobile field. We look forward to doing more and better by our continuously improving RIM expertise and experience.
