Understanding the Properties of Neoprene
A critical aspect of any neoprene molding operation is to have the experience in working with the material in the molding process. As a fully synthetic elastomer, neoprene has different properties than natural rubber, or hybrid materials.
It is essential when designing the mold to understand how neoprene flows into the mold, how long it requires to solidify, and where within the design of the mold there may be areas that are problematic. By addressing any problem issues with regards to the performance of neoprene in the molding process, costs can be reduced as well as the time to the development of the mold.
Considering the Mold Design
By carefully considering the part or component and the overall design, we can make the mold to hide the small line that is left where the two sides of the mold connect. With our mold design experts, this important step can help to eliminate the need for any further processing, while also providing a more aesthetically beneficial part directly from the mold.
