Technomelt® rarely replaces traditional plastic materials directly. If a component can be moulded successfully with PVC, there is no reason to consider Technomelt®. If PVC moulding results in high scrap levels as a result of high injection pressure, Low-Pressure Moulding may be more economical as a result of reduced scrap. Typically, the Low- Pressure Moulding operation is an alternative to potting as it replaces several manufacturing operations. Over-moulding with Technomelt® is typically a single step process. When a component is over-moulded with Technomelt® there is normally no need for a separate plastic housing. The over-moulding material becomes the housing.
