Compression Molded Shapes

Hot Compression Molded shapes manufactured by Polymics,® Ltd. provide engineers and machinists with the quality and performance required for the most demanding applications. Polymics,® Ltd. is currently Compression Molding Plates, Rods, Tubes, Discs, and Near Net Shapes.

Compression Molding is among the most economical of options because it offers a wide range of near net sizes and produces materials with low minimum order quantities. As a result, users can buy exactly the amount of material needed without having to pay additional charges for tooling or small run set-ups.

Benefits of Compression Molding

  • Lowest cost to create molds
  • Small amount of “throw away” or wasted material (ideal for expensive compounds)
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Minimization of final internal stress and warping
  • Excellent dimensional stability and manufacturing accuracy
