Resin Molding Overview

Custom Resin Molding for Demanding Industries

The extruder provides the ability to eliminate metal ions, introduces UV inhibitors, combine fire-retardant additives, modify physical properties or introduce specific color to a custom polymerRMB Products is a long-established leader in custom resin formulations for highly specialized applications. We process our thermoplastics in-house to ensure quality and consistency while eliminating contaminants that can cause needless waste.

Our in-house resin compounding, custom blending and grinding of polymers started out of necessity: The materials we needed did not exist, so we invented them. We continue to produce the materials we use because we have not found a substitute for the quality, purity, and consistency or our raw materials.

Whether you need a flight-ready resin that meets Federal Aviation Regulations or a rotationally moldable inert thermoplastic liner, our custom resin engineers will help you select the appropriate thermoplastic base material for your specific application.

Custom Formulation

Custom resin moldingRMB Products’ custom resin molding formulation and compounding capabilities distinguish us from other plastics companies. We are pioneers in developing rotationally moldable resins, and our accumulated resins expertise continues to benefit our customers. Our in-house capabilities ensure that we manufacture with materials formulated to control for quality, consistency, repeatability and purity.

Meeting Your Precise Specifications
Our custom formulation capabilities provide the flexibility to manufacture to your specifications. Whether you need a certain color or you need to remove the slightest traces of metal ions, we can formulate a resin to meet your specifications.

Ensuring Quality Through Our Lab
Formulating resins in-house means the same quality standards you expect from our manufacturing process have gone into the production and inspection of your basic resin—and we provide a laboratory to prove it. Our extensive polymer characterization laboratory assures we have built the compounds we have designed to yield the predicted attributes.

Processing and Materials Compatibility

Note: Nylon 6, nylon 66 and nylon 610 are available. These resins increase the typical temperature envelope and may have flame retardant added. Mechanical properties are changed with the introduction of additives.
