Depending on the type of energy source, environment or equipment, plastic parts may be required to deliver a range of performance capabilities. In the oil and gas industry, equipment parts like fittings, clamps and pump components often need to endure harsh environmental conditions and maintain their integrity despite contact with corrosive chemicals and materials.
To help create parts that can withstand extreme operational demands, Rjcmold provides a large range of high-performance injection molding materials, including engineering-grade plastics, thermoplastics and specialty plastics. This allows you to achieve a wide variety of performance properties like greater mechanical and tensile strength, corrosion and chemical resistance, UV resistance and more — all in one part.
Rjcmold also offers overmolding services. Overmolding expands on the benefits of injection molding by allowing you to manufacture intricate parts and assemblies from two or more materials in a short amount of time. This means you can achieve quick-turn parts with superior strength and performance properties — such as thermal and impact resistance — that are better suited for more demanding energy industry applications.
With overmolding, rigid plastic materials can also be encompassed in a soft elastomeric rubber material to create parts with enhanced electrical resistance or sealing properties. And in some cases, it can help lower cost per part by eliminating the need for connectors, O-rings and other rubberized pieces and associated part assembly labor.
