YOUR PARTNER IN MOULD ENGINEERING
All pressed products from B&P Products can be fabricated from a wide range of thermosetting materials: bakelite, epoxy, polyester SMC, polyester BMC, polyester granules (UP), silicone, melamine, urea, DAP, etc.
Pressed thermoset products offer the advantages of strength and shape retention, caused by the creation of covalent bonds between the atoms of the thermosets during the heating process.
The pressing of thermosets is cost-effective from very small batches to very large batches. The choice between pressing or injection moulding depends on the application. We can guide you to make the right choice between pressed products or injection moulding products.
Injection Moulding Products
Injection moulding is one of the most popular shaping techniques for plastic products. B&P uses thermosets, offering a range of materials including bakelite, epoxy, polyester SMC, polyester BMC, polyester granules (UP), silicone, melamine, urea, DAP, etc.
The complex shapes created by pressing, can also be produced by injection moulding. Granules or powder is heated up to become a viscous mass and injected into a mould under pressure. When the required pressure is attained, the mould is kept under this pressure for a period of time. This causes the material to spread out evenly across the entire mould with an equal pressure.
For larger scale production this application is a better proposition than using pressings. You are able to produce more per hour with injection moulding. We would be pleased to offer you advice on which option to choose when considering pressing versus injection moulding. Please get in touch for more information.
Several presses of 60 to 400 tons.
Injection moulding of 35 to 275 tons.
Products on demand
Production is not the only service B&P provides for its customers. B&P can also provide drawings, make the moulds and assist you throughout the complete production process. Custom products can be made on demand in collaboration with the customer. Our biggest assets are flexibility and experience. Due to the large variety of materials and specialist production methods, we can offer you a wide range of possibilities with the best possible quality. And we can all do this within a very short period of time. One example is melamine dishes which have a photo or image of your choice on them. The dishes are not only very strong and scratch resistant but the pictures retain a high resolution image.
