Material Expertise

MICRO MATERIAL SELECTION AND
RESIN BEHAVIORAL KNOWLEDGE MATTERS

The team at Isometric Micro Molding offers unprecedented experience with processing many types of exotic materials, with a variety of fillers and load percentages, bioresorbable, API, fluoropolymers, and general to high engineering grade thermoplastics.  No matter what your requirements, our plastics engineering team transparently provides decades of experience and in-depth knowledge of materials for applications such as:

  • Microfluidics
  • Long Term Implantable
  • Drug Delivery
  • Thin Wall Molding
  • Micro features of small parts (up to 6″)
  • Micro sized parts (smaller than a pellet of resin)

We also partner with our customers by providing suggestions from the point of DfM, where selecting the right material for the application is critical.

We account for such factors as:

  • Runner design and gate type, size, and location best for each resin
  • Rheological and shear strength properties
  • Environmental conditions for micron tolerances (humidity, temperature susceptibility)
  • Mitigate burning based on part geometry and mold design of air and gas traps

Our vast library of empirical resin data supports our dedication to precision with application knowledge and experience. In addition, the team at Isometric has experience with applications that require multiple materials such as intricate over-molded components, tiny medical implants–and more. Our micro precision capabilities make it possible to process many types of exotic materials and general-to-high engineering grade thermoplastics, for greater project success.
