2. Polyester and Epoxy reinforced compounds with maximum reinforcement fiber length of approximately ½” are used.
4. It is similar to the Injection moulding of thermoplastic. However the barrel and screw or plunger is kept at relatively lower temperature and the material is injected into a mould kept at 150-1750C.
a. High production rates for very complex parts with almost complete automation.Flash is minimal because parts are injected into a closed mould and thus post mould trimming is kept to a minimum.
