How does it work?
First, we fabricate a male mold which exactly duplicates the part you wish to create a molded covering, grip or cap for. This can be done by machining steel, aluminum or in many cases creating a casting. The mold is then heated to a predetermined time and temperature. Once this temperature has been reached the mold is removed from the oven and dipped into liquid plastisol (PVC) compound. After being totally immersed, the mold is allowed to “dwell” in the plastisol for an appropriate period of time to achieve the desired molded thickness, carefully withdrawn to minimize and control drips or runs and then put back into the oven to “cure”. Once this cycle is complete the mold is cooled and the molded covering is removed and ready for secondary operations such as die cutting or pad printing with customer specific information and ultimately ready for its intended application.
