When it comes to critical device manufacturing, insert-molding and over-molding, Forum provides the most robust performance-oriented practices in polymer manufacturing. Utilizing multiple materials in either polymer or metals, these processes create a mechanical and/or thermal bond based upon the application. Another advantage of insert or over molding is that it eliminates the need for chemical or solvent bonding.

Insert Molding Services Overview

Forum is able to overmold substrates with multiple materials in different locations on your insert. In some cases, plastic on plastic or plastic on metal.
