Composite Technologies Co. and Alliance Gas Systems Inc. worked together to develop a gas-assisted injection molding technology for compression molding.
A patent is pending.
The gas produces parts with low molded-in stress, reduces sink marks, speeds up cycle times in thick-walled areas and allows for uniform shrinkage.
CTC of Dayton, Ohio, used gas assisted molding to make a pickup truck cargo carrier for Reese Products.
Alliance Gas is located in Chesterfield Township, Mich.
