Reaction injection molding (RIM) is similar to injection molding in many ways. And while reaction injection molding can produce strong, flexible, and lightweight parts which can easily be painted injection molding has other benefits. From the cars that we drive to the medical equipment that we use, there are many times when the injection molding process can help people achieve the goals they are reaching for.
RIM is the process where molded polyurethane parts are made. In the RIM process, two liquid components are mixed and injected into the mold where they chemically react and finally cure. Having cells as small as 0.001 inches, all foamed RIM materials are microcellular systems. With the latest injection molded enclosures companies are able to produce many kinds of parts that are needed in a wide range of industries.
