When you request an instant online quote for your plastic injection molding project, you specify options like quantity, color and overmolding. One of these very important options to consider is what type of plastic material you want your parts made out of.
In injection molding, you have a lot of choices when it comes to material selection, and your material choice affects the appearance and performance of your parts.
Does my part need to have high-impact strength? Will it be clear or colored? Does it need to be UV resistant? What about heat stability/resistance?
The answers to these types of questions will help you choose the right material for your part. On our website, we provide a searchable material list to help guide you through your material selection.
If you have questions about material selection, please feel free to contact us and we’ll be glad to help you.
