2K mould, sometimes known as 2 material 2 shot mould or Double Injection, is an innovative manufacturing process used to produce complicated mould parts from two different materials. Through a highly specialized and automated process we carefully control the injection of multiple materials, including two different kinds of resin, into a single, multi-chambered mould.
2K mould in performed on one machine that is programmed to perform two injections in one cycle. In the first cycle, a nozzle injects plastic into a mould. The mould is then automatically rotated and a different type of plastic is injected into the mould from a second nozzle.2K mould optimizes co-polymerization of hard and soft materials to create powerful molecular bond. The result is a single part with production and feature advantages. It can be used for a variety of product designs across all industries. It also allows for molud using clear plastics, colored graphics and stylish finishes which improves your product functionality and marketplace value.
Enhanced tactile and cosmetic product features
Application of 2k mould:
1. Product function requirements: power switch, mobile phone keys.
2. Feel requirements: some hand-held products, such as power tools, toothbrush handles, vacuum flasks.
3. Aesthetic requirements, such as logo, require beauty without being worn away.
4. Product local area needs electroplating.
