REACTION INJECTION MOLDING (RIM)

Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) is what we do. From luxurious, soft-touch interior components to durable, high-impact exterior components, AdvancTEK's five unique RIM systems are tunable to for most any polyurethane composite application. With decades of RIM experience, we have partnered with a wide range of industries to help them bring their RIM project to reality.

What is Reaction Injection Molding?

1

RIM

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

Advantages

  • Excellent Acoustic Properties
  • Excellent Thermal Properties
  • Tunable (Density & Thickness)
  • B-Side Features & Insert Encapsulation
  • Lower Tooling Investment than Injection Molding
  • Endlessly tunable chemistry:  Soft-touch to rigid, high-impact characteristics
