Acrylic Injection Moulding
Acrylic materials are polymers which feature excellent properties in many respects.
Why use Stephens Plastic for acrylic injection moulding?
Because many medical items are complex in structure and present difficulties for injection moulders, when such devices are produced the suitable acrylic polymer grade is used, and the acrylic injection moulding parameters are also selected carefully.
- High termal & chemical stability
- High optical transmittance
- Range of products and uses
- All forms of Acrylic moulding
Medical items and devices produced using the acrylic injection moulding method meet stringent requirements for a vast array of applications.
Lighting equipment and housewares
Because acrylics have no odour or taste, they are widely used to manufacture refrigerator drawers and different food storage containers via acrylic injection moulding.
The properties of acrylics can be changed when copolymerisation is effected.
When ABS is added, that results in higher impact strength; when polycarbonate is added, the obtained impact strength is higher than that of sheer polycarbonate. However, that with the reduction in the ambient temperature the impact strength of both acrylics and their copolymers is reduced accordingly.
