What Is Injection Molded Plastic?

ICOMold uses a process called plastic injection molding to produce thousands of plastic parts every day in a range of shapes and sizes.

But what are injection molded plastic parts?

Simply put, they’re parts made using plastic injection molding. In this process, hot liquid plastic is forced into a mold of the desired shape, resulting in a plastic piece that, when dried, permanently takes that shape. It’s similar to how cake batter baked in a cupcake pan will retain a cupcake shape.

For a step-by-step overview of the process, read our recent blog post.

Most of the plastic parts you see every day are made by molding plastic with the help of machines. At ICOMold, we’ve created plastic injection molding parts for everything from specially designed water bottles to hunting tools and accessories.
