Overmolding Composites

Expanding the landscape for composite parts and the performance of injection molding

Overmolding Composites: COMBINING STRENGTH AND DESIGN FREEDOM

Novel hybrid molding solutions combining material science and process innovation.

Overmolding composites integrates the mechanical performance of continuously-reinforced thermoplastic composites with the design flexibility to injection-mold complex geometries and features. The hybrid molding process offers continuous manufacturing with short cycle times and mechanical performance equivalent to or better than traditional aerospace metals.

Benefits of Overmolding Composites

  • Meet an industry need for quality thermoplastic composite parts at rate
  • Superior properties and faster processing compared to thermoset composites
  • Hybrid molding enables design flexibility and part consolidation resulting in reduced part count
