Overmoulding for the Environmental Sector

By overmoulding a product, water ingress can be prevented and an IP seal achieved. The use of primers or adhesives is no longer required to achieve an optimum bond between two materials. Overmoulding will also deliver a tamper proof solution.

Overmoulding - Environmental applications

How Overmoulding Withstands A Variety Of Conditions

The material used for our overmoulding is a polyamide that is applied in a low-pressure system so that it is safe for sensitive electronics, and it is chosen because of its high levels of adhesion, its toughness and its “green credentials”.  The Technomelt polyamide we use is recyclable and made from 70% natural organic oils. The major benefit of this material and the unique process we use means that not only can the part be “potted” for protection, but it becomes the outer packaging at the same time. This saves money, time, and waste!  Many variants are available, each offering different key qualities, for example, UV resistance & salt water resistance.
