FastKast(TM), IAC's proprietary slush molding
technology in production in Europe and in China is a current example of the company's vertical integration.
These air mats are usually manufactured by slush molding
, involving several steps.
slush-molded SBC skins can be made on the same equipment as for PVC slush molding
but reportedly are much more efficient, due to lower molding temperature and up to 30% thinner skins.
Our new innovation can be used to replace PVC, which has been the predominant material for interior soft skins using the slush molding
The upper portion of the instrument panel is a padded slush molding
that is separated by the harder plastic lower section by a bright trim strip.
PVC/ABS thermoformed skins for instrument panels (IP) have lost market share to slush molding
and polyurethane spray in both North America and Europe.
Electroformed nickel shells provide good performance in the manufacture of unsupported molds for rotational molding, slush molding
, blow molding, and vacuum forming.
An Environmental Leader SUNVIEO also has a deep environmental impact when comparing injection-molded IPs to thermoforming and slush molding
Manufacturers can achieve significant improvements in low-temperature performance, fogging, and recyclability while still using existing slush molding
equipment and standard processing conditions.
The researchers tested a formulation used in injection molding and two powders used in slush molding
, which, though similar to rotational molding, applies only partial biaxial motion during processing.
Schulman unveiled a licensed technology for Inteva Products (formerly Delphi Interiors & Closures), which consists of a hybrid TPE for slush molding
IP skins to replace slush-molded TPU or sprayed urethane.
ACC Molding Systems was established to provide the European Union and neighboring continents with equipment for dip molding, dip coating, slush molding
, flow molding and cast film processing.
