Polyurethane (RIM)

Polyurethane (RIM) - NeaForma

Our colleagues in Slovakia produce high-quality polyurethane products for you, if necessary with a lacquer finish or pre-assembly. An own internal transport between the two companies ensures a good delivery performance.

What

Polyurethane foam products are made in a closed aluminum mold by means of Reaction Injection Molding (RIM). Two liquid substances, usually polyols and isocyanates, are injected into a mold under pressure. Gasification occurs, whereby the material starts to foam, expands and forms to the mold. This gives the product a porous, lightweight core with a closed surface. Both hard products and flexible parts can be made with this technique.

Scope of application

From lightweight products for insulating purposes to high density solutions for high impact resistance.

The applications are numerous in the markets where safety, insulating properties, impact resistance and tactile feeling are an important requirement.

  • from 100 to 5,000 pieces.
  • from 20 grams to 20 kg.

Characteristics

  • Large variation in density.
  • Aluminum molds (low investment).
  • Swirl effect on the surface => to be solved by painting or by placing a foil in the mold.
