There are lots of different processes that companies can use when producing plastic and rubber parts, but two of the best ones available are dip molding and dip coating. From customization to cost-effectiveness, see how dip molding and dip coating can solve some of the problems your company deals with on a daily basis:  

Cost 

One of the biggest problems you’ll face when producing plastic and rubber parts is the cost associated with doing it. Thanks to low tooling costs and short production times, dip molding and dip coating can solve this problem by being much cheaper than other forms of production. 

Customizing 

Sometimes, the standard product just won’t suit your needs. With dip molding/coating, however, you can design a product to your own specifications. Not only can you customize the design, but you can also customize the thickness, allowing for any kind of thickness that you need or want for your product. 

Parting lines 

Another lesser known problem that dip molding specifically can solve is that of parting lines.  Many times, with injection or blow molded parts, the molds are manufactured in a way that leaves a faint parting line on the outside of the molded part. With dip molding, however, a part can be created without any parting lines forming afterwards. 

Aesthetics 

You want your part to be functional, but you also want it to be aesthetically pleasing as well. That’s where dip coating comes in. Dip coating is designed to provide an aesthetically pleasing finish on a metal part while protecting that part from things like corrosion and abrasion. In other words, this process can give you the chance to change the color, gloss level, and even the overall texture of a metal part. This will make the part look better than it would otherwise, and in many cases, it’ll also make it safer to use.
