Glass-filled options can support the deployment of force as needed in medical devices.

A plastic component’s surface quality plays a vital role in the functionality and aesthetics of medical devices and equipment. Glass-filled Makrolon® can also achieve high gloss surface with rapid heat cycle molding (RHCM).

What is RHCM?

FIGURE 1: Part surface quality using non RHCM (left) and RHCM (right).
Covestro has developed a multi-texture demonstration tool to highlight the benefits of RHCM as shown in Figure 1. This illustrates how the RHCM technology enhances surface replication to eliminate cosmetic defects such as weld lines, gate blush and rib read-through, as well as achieve high and low gloss on the same part.

In the RHCM process, the mold surface is superheated before the plastic is injected into the mold. Once the cavity is filled, the mold is cooled rapidly during the packing and cooling phases before the part is ejected.
