Reaction Injection Molding is a low pressure, low temperature process used to mold many types of plastic parts typically for medical, industrial and automotive industries.

Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) allows for the molding of strong, lightweight parts that are easily painted. The materials utilized by Design Octaves are of the rigid family with a UL94V-0 rating for flammability.

The Reaction Injection Molding Material is a two component system which consists of polyol and isocyanate liquids that are impingement mixed at a high pressure and metered into the closed tool at low pressure. The material expands to fill the tool and is ejected in about 5 minutes.

Advantages of RIM Molding

Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) allows for complex geometry with inside and outside details molded into the part.

Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) allows for the design and molding of a part with thick and thin walls, breaking the rules of injection molding.

Being a true core and cavity tooling system, Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) allows for the molding of parts with intricate details, undercuts, side pulls, overmolding and more.
