Dip Molded Parts Specifications
- A wide selection of shapes, sizes and wall thicknesses.
- A specialty line of latex and non-latex compounds to choose from, including natural rubber latex, neoprene and synthetic polyisoprene.
- Small to medium-run batches, helping you meet tough deadlines.
- Low-cost prototype development.
- Part dimensions can range from 1″ (25.4mm) to 20″ (508mm) in length and .25″ (6.35mm) to 12″ (304mm) in diameter.
- There will be a uniform wall thickness throughout the entire part.
- Parts can be no larger than five times the diameter of the open end. This allows us to strip the part from the dipping form without unnecessary stretching or damage.
- Forms should have rounded contours. This enables material to flow during the dipping process.
- Please avoid sharp angles and/or flat surfaces that run parallel to the material’s surface.
- You can provide forms or we can create forms for you that meet your specifications. If you want us to create your forms, please provide detailed dimensional drawings. It helps ensure that we tool the forms accurately.
