Transcription: As part of our structural plastics work we do gas assist injection molding. Gas assist is really an injection molding process where we enter the melt and then we chase it with nitrogen gas. This allows us to channel out specific areas, thicker sections, build in strong points into the design of the part and really give a nice robust part.
Transcription: A gas assisted injection molded part is going to have a little more of a look like a high pressure injection molded product. There won’t be a lot of swirls. It’ll be more of a solid look, but still, won’t be a perfect class A surface. Adequate for most applications, it still is a very structural product. It has the gas channels but will look a lot like injection molding.
