Urethane Casting & Mold Making
Urethane casting allows for cost-effective production of small- to medium-sized runs with shorter lead-times and lower tooling costs than traditional injection molding.
Rapid Casting Advantages
Cast small- to medium-sized batches of parts, from tens of units to thousands
Production-quality finishes with the look and feel of injection molded parts
Typically lower unit costs than printed parts
Tooling in weeks, not months, when compared to injection molding
Ideal for electronics housings, gaskets, cosmetic parts, displays and low volume production
Compatible with a range of materials, including:
Food-grade and medical-grade materials
Elastomers and rigid plastics ranging from 20A - 90D durometer
Other materials such as silicone, plaster, concrete and composites
Please note that these are are guidelines, not hard-and-fast rules. Follow these, and you should be in pretty good shape. We'll let you know if we see any problems with your design.
Casting is more art than science. Please consult with our casting experts for project specific design instructions.
