A large number of polymeric materials with different degrees of hardness and colours can be combined and processed in multi component injection moulding.
Time- and cost-intensive assemblies are not required during the manufacturing process. An optimum price-performance ratio is thus achieved, in particular for the production of large numbers of units for medical and pharmaceutical components.
Multi-component injection moulding allows the integration of additional functions into components. Sandwich injection moulding can be used to reduce both the permeation of water vapour and oxygen through the use of two materials with different barrier properties.
In addition to the processing of a great variety of thermoplastics in multi-component injection moulding, silicone injection moulding is a fixed parameter in our technological portfolio. A special feature is the combination of the two procedures. We combine a hard thermoplastic component with a super-elastic soft component made of silicone. This opens up entirely new perspectives, e.g., for medical seals or pharmaceutical dosing systems. And all this is manufactured using multi-component injection moulding.
Parts produced using multi-component injection moulding:
- Drug container with barrier function
- Perifix catheter coupling
- Luer needle for eye surgery
