          WHAT'S NEW?
       In addition to our proprietary low and high-pressure injection molding solutions, Rodgard has
       added RIM (reaction injection molded) Urethane and Nylon to further enhance our customer
       offering. We offer these engineered polymer solutions from product design and development
       to full commercialization.



          WHY RIM URETHANE AND RIM NYLON?
       SUPERIOR PRODUCT PERFORMANCE:
       Provides an almost infinite number of formulations to optimize properties for the most
       demanding applications, from very rigid to flexible and tough ( 80 Shore D to 10 Shore A)

       DESIGN FLEXIBILITY:
       Allow thin/thick sections,
       stress free parts

       PROCESSING:
       Large parts, complex shapes,
       low pressure tooling

       VERSATILITY:
       Accommodates additives,
       colorants, fillers & overmolding

       ECONOMICS:
       Very low tooling cost!
       Competitive for short run!



          HOW DOES
          RIM WORK?
       For Polyurethane – two reactants, a polyisocyanate and an activator are metered into a mix
       chamber, then into molds where they undergo a reaction to form polyurethane. The process
       for nylon is similar but involves the addition of nylon prepolymer and activator.
