Plastic Molding

Plastic molding is a manufacturing process that uses thermoplastics to fabricate components. The thermoplastic is heated to the melt temperature, then injection molded into a form. The thermoplastic is then cooled sufficiently to return the thermoplastic to its solid state before removing it from the mold. Plastic molding is used for a wide range of applications and is widely used in the fabrication of automobile body panels.
