When a specific design requires combining multiple plastic materials into one finished part, the cost-effective process known as overmolding may be the solution you need.

Overmolding is a good choice if you want to mold a rubber piece onto a piece of hard plastic. Examples of this process would include:

  • Soft-grip pens
  • Disposable razor handles
  • Ergonomic kitchen utensils

Overmolding: Combine Hard Plastic with Soft Rubber

Overmolding combines plastics with materials like rubber to form a completed part.

  • A two step process, the overmolding process uses a pre-formed plastic part placed into a mold
  • The second material is then injected into the mold, covering all or part of the first part
