Flashless Silicone Molding
Flashless Silicone Molding provides an exceptional end product with geometry accuracy and finish consistency to meet the strictest application standards. With flashless molding, we create your silicone part with special tooling and mold designs that prevent excess material from escaping or “flashing,” eliminating the unsightly and often function-impairing “parting line” (the line where material flashed) on your part.
Flashless molding also stops silicone waste, reducing material costs, and also labor costs associated with trimming off excess material. Further savings are realized through the elimination of part waste associated with accidental rip and tear during de-flashing.
Flashless silicone molding yields faster turnaround and improved finish
With no excess material to be removed from the component, your flashless molded part comes out of our molds as a finished product with a more uniform and predictable exterior. With secondary finishing operations not needed, our turnaround time for your part is reduced, and production capabilities increased!
Improved end product characteristics—another advantage
Dymotek’s flashless silicone molding also achieves a heat-induced chemical bond superior to incorporating a secondary adhesion process—an important factor for mission-critical part applications. Finally, with flash-removal handling concerns gone, we can design (for non-medical products only) and mold your part with intricate and predictable characteristics only achievable through flashless silicone molding.
