POPULAR INJECTION MOLDING MATERIALS
These are just a few of the materials most frequently found in injection molded products:
ABS is one of the most commonly used injection molding materials, due to its relatively low cost and structural strength.
Polycarbonate is another frequently used material, most notably for applications that require a high level of transparency or that will be subjected to high heat.
Ultem is a high performance plastic that is often used in medical, electronic, and aerospace applications due to its prolonged heat resistance and outstanding strength properties.
Polypropylene is another popular material that is used in a wide variety of applications. Its relatively high chemical resistance makes it a good option for containers and packaging.
Acetal is another high performance polymer, one that is often used for parts that would otherwise be made from metal materials.
Nylon can be used for many things, including rope! It is also a good choice for components that require extremely high strength.
Aside from ABS, Polyethylene is perhaps the most widely used polymer of our list. That’s because it comes in many varieties, each well suited to particular applications.
