Design Considerations for Multi-Material Molding of Thermoplastic Elastomers

Global market-leading original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) are facing tremendous market pressure to create innovative designs in record time for the least possible cost. In addition to maintaining the highest possible quality throughout the product’s expected lifecycle, consumers are demanding that products do more for less. Multi-Material molding (MMM), a process whereby at least one melt processible material is bonded with at least one other material to produce a single, molded component, allows designers to optimize material properties and costs, eliminate assembly processes, and even invent ground-breaking products that could not be manufactured otherwise. This paper will present an overview of multi-material molding – a technology that is helping manufacturers meet their current market challenges - and discuss some of the design considerations involved in this approach to manufacturing.
