Stephens Plastic Mouldings Limited is one of the best plastic injection moulding companies in the UK today.

Injection moulding is a manufacturing process of injecting a raw material to mould to create an entirely different thing. They have been in the business since 2011, but before that, they were known as Stephen Gaskets.

Manufacturing Process Of Injecting

That years of experience under their belt has enabled them to hone and develop effective technique when it comes to their primary expertise, injection moulding. It is a typical process for glass, elastomers, confections, and thermoplastic. This is the same idea for the Regrind injection moulding process.

Affordable resin material

Regrind refers to the plastic material generated during the actual injection moulding process, especially during the flash and trim processes. Some injection moulding equipment produces more regrind compared to others. The idea behind Regrind injection moulding is similar to recycle. It is excellent because it helps the environment. However, using it requires a lot of careful consideration because they have already been broken down, unlike the typical virgin material. But, what’s great about them is that they are more affordable compared to other types of resin material.

When regrind is used in the injection moulding process, the viscosity will be affected depending on how much regrind is in the blend in the feedstock because Regrind materials have more viscosity than virgin materials.

This is why to create a similar flow characteristic between the virgin and Regrind material, increasing the melt temperature during the process is needed for the Regrind.

Dealing with Regrind material

Moreover, dealing with Regrind material that has already undergone mechanical and thermal stress, it is an excellent process to know its heat history so that you can pinpoint its chemical and physical degradation.

This also helps in identifying the melt temperature applicable and how much virgin to regrind material you need.

Regrind and virgin material

There can be a lot of issues when combining Regrind and virgin material during injection moulding. However, several methods could make it better. For example, rather than using a ratio of regrind and virgin materials, you can instead use 100% virgin material and feed the 100% regrind later on to the machine. This solves the issue in the difference of melt point between the two materials.

Using Regrind injection moulding can be tricky but the years of experience and the recent acquisition of state of the art machinery of Stephen Plastic Moulding Limited has made them one of the best injection mould service providers to handle Regrind injection moulding.
