By its nature, urethane casting is a manufacturing method for low-volume and prototype plastic parts, because the silicone molds used to make them are not durable enough to last for more than about 20-25 parts. Therefore, it is ideal for situations in which a few parts are needed that are high-quality, precise and have the performance characteristics that would be required in production parts. Some examples are:

  • Engineering models
  • Marketing test samples
  • Pre-production runs
  • Test prototypes
  • Rapid prototypes
  • Bridge to production
  • Point of purchase display parts
  • Exhibit parts
  • User evaluation
  • Consumer testing
  • Crowdfunding campaigns
  • Low-volume manufacturing
  • Concept models
  • Sales samples
