An Industry Leader in
Reaction Injection Molding (RIM)

AdvancTEK is a leader in reaction injection molding. From luxurious, soft-touch interior components to durable, high-impact exterior parts, our five unique RIM systems are tunable for most polyurethane composite applications. We’ve partnered with a wide range of industries to help them bring their RIM projects to reality.

What is Reaction Injection Molding?


Reaction Injection Molding – Explained.

Two components are mixed together and injected under high pressure into a mold. The polymer expands to fill the mold cavity and cures to create a finished product. Material characteristics can be custom-tuned for a wide range of applications. RIM offers much of the same design flexibility as injection molding but requires significantly less tooling investment.

Advantages of RIM

Why Should You Choose Reaction Injection Molding?

  • Large, lightweight parts with a high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Excellent acoustic and thermal properties
  • Tunable density and thickness – from soft-touch to rigid, high-impact characteristics
  • Excellent thermal stability
  • B-side features and insert encapsulation
  • Lower tooling investment than injection molding
  • Rapid prototyping capabilities
  • Complete design freedom
