Runfold Plastics has experience of working with customers on customised projects, successfully designing and manufacturing custom profiles.
Custom dip moulding has the ability to profile custom shapes that could not be achieved by the injection moulding process. This is due to the ability of the PVC moulding material to stretch over the forming core of the required profile. The pictures below show good examples of this process technology.
