Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) provides designers unlimited freedom to design what they envision without compromising the product’s structural integrity.
Despite having a similar name and process to injection molding, RIM has the capabilities to produce a wide range of hardnesses and improved physical properties through thermosets and never with thermoplastics. RIM combines the superior materials mostly used in cast molding to achieve stronger, lightweight, tailored products and components. Because of this, RIM is often used in structural parts, enclosures, and cabinetries found in fitness & recreation, military & defense, medical, and heavy machinery applications to name a few.
