Moulding Processes

Astar does not carry out moulding activities but gives complete assistance to its customers during all stages, including complete support on moulding of our materials.

Compression moulding is carried out in a hot mould (temperature between 130 – 160ºC) and under pressure (typically 30 – 120 bar), in vertical presses specially designed for this process. SMC and CSMC are usually compression moulded. BMC can also be used in this type of moulding process.

Injection moulding is carried out in a hot mould (temperature between 130 – 170ºC) and under pressure (typically 110 – 160 bar), in injection machines specially designed for this process. BMC is mainly used in this type of moulding process.
