A variety of injection molding, liquid silicone molding, and compression molding options are available for an online quote. If you do not see the material stock you are looking for, please choose "Custom" under the material drop-down on your quote page and submit for an expert engineering review once you have specified features, tolerances, inspection needs, and quantities required. Below are the most common materials, and our injection molding services page offers a more comprehensive overview of our custom molding options, including insert molding and over-molding.
Molded ABS: High strength general-purpose engineering plastic, used for many commercial products.
Molded PC-ABS: The best of both PC and ABS. Higher-strength engineering thermoplastic with slightly more flexibility than standard polycarbonate.
Molded Acrylic (PMMA): A clear glass-like plastic. Good wear and tear properties. Great for outdoor use.
Molded Customer-supplied resin: Please add a note or attach a PDF drawing to this quote to specify your supplied material in the Notes and Drawings tab.
Molded Delrin (Acetal, POM): Acetal resin with good moisture resistance, high wear-resistance, and low friction.
Molded HDPE: Excellent strength-to-weight ratio and chemical resistance. HDPE is often used for fuel tanks, connector insulators, and food containers.
Molded LDPE: A flexible and tough material with lower density versus HDPE. LDPE does not react to acids, bases, or alcohols. Useful for trays, snap lids, and general-purpose containers.
Molded Nylon 6: Offers increased mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat, and/or chemical resistance.
Molded Nylon 6/6: Offers increased mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat, and/or chemical resistance.
Molded PBT: A common electronic insulator with a polyester base. Highly used in automotive as a longer-wear alternative to nylon.
Molded PC-PBT: A tough and rigid material resistant to lubricants, solvents, and cleaning agents. Very common in electronic enclosures.
Molded PEEK: Offering excellent tensile strength, PEEK is often used as a lightweight substitute for metal parts in high-temperature, high-stress applications. PEEK resists chemicals, wear, and moisture.
Molded PEI (Ultem): Known best for its extremely high heat and flame resistance, PEI is used for many medical applications and is more affordable than PEEK.
Molded PET: A polyester-based polymer commonly used for liquid containers (e.g. soda bottles) and food packaging.
Molded PC (Polycarbonate): A clear or colored, light-weight, glass-like plastic.
Molded PLA: A biodegradable and renewable plastic. PLA has a relatively low glass transition temperature and is common in short-use applications.
Molded Polyethylene (PE): One of the most common plastics available. PE has high ductility, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance.
Molded Polypropylene (PP): Polypropylene has excellent electrical properties and little or no moisture absorption. It carries light loads for a long period in varying temperatures. It can be molded into parts requiring chemical or corrosion resistance.
Molded Polystyrene (PS): A clear, hard, and brittle material widely used for food packaging, clamshell containers, and even disposable cutlery.
Molded PPE-PS: Exhibiting high heat and flame resistance, PPE-PS has high stiffness and tensile strength even at elevated temperatures.
Molded PPS: A high-performance thermoplastic with extreme resistance to solvents.
Molded PSU: A rigid, stiff, and transparent plastic which is a higher-performance alternative to polycarbonate.
Molded PVC: A rigid, general use plastic, that is common in plumbing, non-food packaging, and trimming.
Molded TPE (elastomer): A rubbery material that can stretch at moderate levels and return to its molded size. Used for gaskets, bumpers, and grips.
Molded TPV (rubber): A rubbery material that can stretch at moderate levels and return to its molded size. Used for gaskets, bumpers, and grips.
