MANUFACTURING PROCESSES

THERMOSET INJECTION MOLDING

Ashton Plastic Products utilizes Thermoset plastic resins with an injection process enabling us to successfully convert many high heat and electrical Thermoplastic applications to the Thermoset Process. We have also been successful converting compression and transfer method to the injection process. The injection process give us the capacity to lower costs for our customers through increased productivity. Our Thermoset injection presses range from 75 Ton to 550 Ton, including rotary and shuttle presses. We also specialize in insert molding.
