Why Structural Foam Plastic?
Structural foam custom molded plastics are an excellent alternative for wood and/or steel replacement. Structural custom molded plastics offer superior strength to weight ratio, lower cost, lower weight, and the ability to incorporate recyclable materials.
With each project comes new challenges and with DeKALB's streamlined structural foam processes, we are able to achieve goals, solve problems, and create quality, long-lasting products. We produce durable parts such as:
Gas assist molding is a low pressure process where a nitrogen gas is injected into the plastic part in certain areas to hollow out the part. The nitrogen gas does not mix with the resin, but instead forms continuous channel through the hotter less viscous sections of the melt stream. The gas maintains internal pressure through out the cooling cycle.
