Benefits of Compression Molding

Compression molding involves a preheated material and a heated mold cavity. The material is placed in the mold and in order for the material to make full contact with all areas of the mold, pressure is applied. When the mold is closed with a top plug, the  pressure squeezes the preheated material fully into the entire mold, thereby taking the full shape of the mold. The mold sits fully compressed while the newly formed product cures for a specified amount of time.

Compression Molding of Small PartsCompression molding is a manufacturing process often utilized to create large, intricate parts with a fair amount of detail. For instance, this process is used to create detailed products including tires and electrical plugs. However, many small parts in unique shapes are also prime for compression molding.
