Custom Compression Molding Service

Compression molding is a method of forming plastic or rubber in a closed cavity by heating and hot pressing. It is a good choice for manufacturing large pieces, and low-to-medium quantities production with competitive tooling price.

Zhongde, a reputable company providing customized compression molding service, include both plastic and rubber. The molding pressure of the compression molding process is higher than other process methods, and it belongs to high-pressure molding. We utilize hydraulic presses that can control the pressure, and high-strength, high-precision, and high-temperature resistant metal molds to guarantees the quality of molded products. Using the compression molding process, we can guarantee high-efficiency production, ensure accurate products, and smooth surface.

Plastic compression molding, rubber compression molding, silicone compression molding are all available. 

Other types: cold compression molding, vacuum compression molding, direct compression molding, composite compression molding…

Custom Compression Moulding Process

Compression molding is a tried-and-true method of manufacturing simple pieces. The process start from giving amount of uncured material placed into a mold cavity, which is then closed and heated. When the parts have cured, they are removed from the mold.

What is compression moulding used for?

Compression moulding is a composite manufacturing process normally used to produce composite components in high production volume, generally used to make larger flat or moderately curved part.


What products are made by compression moulding

Compression molding is a process of molding in which a feeding material is placed into an open, heated mold cavity. Many products can be produced by compression molding, such as rubber gasket, handles, automotive parts and many other large size products.

What Materials are Used in Compression Moulding

In addition to the general materials listed below, Zhongde can also modify the materials according to the special needs of customers. Our professional engineers will adjust the raw material formula to meet the unique conditions of use.

Compression molding plastic material

Thermoset plastics and Thermoplastics are two types of material most often used for compression molding. Thermoset plastic often refers to  polyurethane, unsaturated. Common types of thermoplastics are  UHMWPE, PTFE.

  • UHMWPE | Ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene
  • PTFE | Polytetrafiuoroethylene


Compression molding rubber material

A wide range of rubber material can be process by compression molding ,including Butyl, Natural Rubber, Neoprene, Nitrial, SBR, etc.

  • NR | Natural Rubber
  • NBR | Nitrile Rubber
  • SBR | Styrene-butadiene Rubber
  • HNBR | Hydrogenated Nitrile
  • CR | Neoprene Rubber
  • VMQ | Silicone
  • FVMQ | Fluorosilicone
  • FKM | Fluorocarbon
  • FFKM | Perfluorocarbon Rubber
  • EPDM | Ethylene-Propylene Diene Monomer Rubber
  • IR | Polyisoprene Rubber
  • IIR | Butyl Rubber


TPE Compression Molding

  • TPE
  • TPV
  • TPU
  • TPR

Additives of Custom Compression Molding

Name Description
UV absorbers Absorb UV radiation, slowing down the degradation of the material when used outdoors.
Flame retardants Prevent ignition and inhibits the spread of fire.
Plasticizers Increase flexibility and promotes plasticity, reducing brittleness of the material.
Colorants Used to color plastics.
Carbon fibers Increase strength, toughness, and rigidity of the material at the expense of making the material more brittle.
Glass fibers Increase strength, toughness, and rigidity of the material at the expense of making the material more brittle. It is more flexible than carbon fibers.

FAQs of Compression Molding Services

What is the service life of the mold?

Generally speaking, one set of molds can produce millions of products, and we will provide mold maintenance and repair services. If the upper limit of mold usage is reached, we will reopen a set of molds for free.

Where is the tooling when my injection mold is done?

As a one-stop rubber and plastic injection molding manufacturer, we will make the tooling by ourselves. As long as you continue to run parts in our facility, we will keep the molds for you and make any necessary repairs or refurbishments at our cost for the life of your mold.

What are types of compression molding?

There are two types of compression molding process, i.e., cold compression and hot compression moldings.
