As an industry leading contract molding provider, Elastomer Technologies provides premium quality compression, transfer, liquid injection, and dual material molding of rubbers and silicone compounds. Silicone liquid injection molding can be used to create protective surfaces, grips, or other silicone components around metal or plastic parts. For temperature sensitive applications, silicone is an excellent choice. In medical molding it is non-irritating. ETI's Lights out manufacturing capabilities allow them to minimize production costs without sacrificing quality. You can be assured of clean parts form their ISO 8 Class 100,000 clean room.

Compression and transfer molding are very versatile processes that can be used to create unique shapes or parts with complex insert requirements in a wide range of material compounds including custom materials. Using these processes for dual material molding reduces assembly time, results in very attractive and useful finished assemblies, providing a seamless look while using different materials or colors for various part features. In addition, because multiple components are molded together, tooling costs are typically significantly less for co-molded assemblies.

ETI's breadth of expertise allows them to select from multiple molding methods to choose the optimal process for a given application. ETI provides IQ, OQ, PQ studies as required. Lead times average four to twenty-four weeks depending on a project complexity, tooling requirements and qualification requirements. For additional information about custom molding services see the table below, or contact ETI directly.
