Plastic dip mouldings
Below are frequently asked questions regarding plastic dip moulding.
Q. What is dip moulding?
A. It is a service that allows for the manufacture of flexible and semi-rigid mouldings in vinyl (PVC) with very low-cost tooling, and is a viable alternative to injection, roto, compression and blow moulding.
Q. What are typical costs for developing a dip moulding item?
A. Tooling for dip moulding is the least expensive of all the plastic moulding processes. Typical full production tooling costs are in the hundreds of pounds, not thousands. Prototype tools and samples often cost less than £150.
Q. How long does it take to develop a concept into a finished moulding?
A. Usually ten working days or less is required for the manufacture of a prototype tool and samples. On receipt of sample approval, a further ten working days or less is required for the manufacture of full production tooling.
PVC shrouds for electrical insulation
WJC has experience in supplying PVC (plastic) shrouds for use on standby power systems, medium to high-voltage electrical insulation (shrouds, bushings, etc.) and PVC coating of busbars. We also supply shrouds for aerospace industries and vehicle manufacturers.
Plastic dip moulding volumes / capacity
WJC can run small or large quantities of dip mouldings. We keep costs down during prototyping and trials – no job is too large or too small.
PVC, oil-resistant, UV-stabilised dip mouldings
We offer flame-retardant grades of PVC, oil-resistant and UV-stabilised materials. In addition, we can ‘double dip’ items with contrasting colours of PVC, which will reveal any damage to the outer coating.
