Two-component (2K) molding is a two-step injection process used to create a part using two materials with different properties. Overmolding is the process of molding a soft substance to a more rigid one. Both production methods meet several manufacturing objectives, from enhancing assembly performance to reducing the weight and number of parts, from leveraging the best material qualities to reducing cost. It's creating "the best of both worlds" in one component and is the natural evolution of Acaplast's material and manufacturing expertise.
Whether you need to combine LSR & plastic, rubber & plastic, thermoplastic elastomers & plastic or even more complex combinations involving metal, ceramics, composites, wood or glass, Acaplast has a solution for you.
