WHY CHOOSE PU?
What is it?
Our PU (or RIM) is a rigid, self-skinning, thermosetting, expanded foam system specifically blended to produce tough, rigid and structural mouldings.
What is it good for?
Low-run batch quantities, from two or three, up to two or three hundred, moulded covers, instrument cases and awkwardly-shaped components that have to perform strongly, be very cost-effective and still look great!
What’s the process?
We inject a reactive mixture of resin polyol with an ISO curing agent into a closed mould-tool. The mixture instantly reacts and greatly expands, filling the tool cavity to a density of around 600 kg/m3 and at the same time forming a hard, solid resin skin all round.
Why is it cost-effective?
For small batches of mouldings for high-value products PU is extremely cost-effective due to the low start up costs of our resin/aluminium mould-making process – considerably less than for injection moulding tooling.
