Custom Plastic Overmolding Service
Need to create plastic molded parts with multiple materials? Our custom overmolding service will be a satisfying solution for you.
As a variant of injection molding, this technique can create plastic parts with more than two kinds of plastics and colors. We can combine materials with different hardness to form a more perfectly designed part to increase friction. For example, the handles of the toothbrush and portable electric fans.
Plastic materials have unique shrinkage and heat resistance, and they can accommodate various tolerance ranges. To solve this problem, we will choose different materials to complete the project. The common materials we offer for overmold include TPE/ABS/PEEK/Acrylic/PE/PEI/POM/PP.
TPE(Thermoplastic Elastomer) currently is broadly applied in plastic overmold. It is durable and recyclable.
Polyurethane is also a good choice for plastic over molding. It has strong bonding/electrical/economical properties.
EPDM rubber is superior rubber with a high level of heat-resistant and chemical-resistant.
Plastic over molding can apply to numerous car parts like Fascias/Power Steering/Tyre Pressure/Sensors.
It is a process that molding plastic on the metal part. It will greatly decrease the cost of assembling.

Plastic Overmolding FAQs
1. What Is Plastic Over molding?
Plastic over-molding belongs to one type of injection molding. It uses the combination of two or more two kinds of thermoplastics to produce a single part or product. There are two main parts: the basis layer and the additional layer. The basic layer should be molded first and then the additional layer would mold on the surface of the basic layer.
After processing, these combined plastics will never depart from each other. It means that we do not need any primer or binder to achieve the eternal combination.

2. What Are the Differences between Plastic Overmolding and Insert Molding?
Both over-molded and insert molding are two types of injection molding. There are big differences between them.
- Their processings. Overmold is a process that combines many kinds of plastics to create a single product. We will use the softer plastic layer on the basis plastic layer. Meanwhile, insert molding needs an insert to be placed in the mold in advance, which can make the flow of the injection molding melt materials.
- Their benifts. The benefits of over-molding are cost-effective solutions; the finished products are durable; it can increase safety. The benefits of insert molding are: that it can greatly decrease the cost of assembling and labor cost; reduce the assembling time and weight of the plastic parts. This is a brief introduction to the differences between overmolded and Insert Molding. At Ruitai, we have certified engineers and an energetic team to serve you any needs on plastic over-molding.
