At TS Industries we use a wide variety of silicone and urethane rubber materials for both mold and part making. In the mold making process we can pour the liquid rubber around an existing part. Once the rubber has cured we can remove the original part and we are left with a mold cavity. The next step is to pour the desired material into the mold and let it set up.

Here at TS Industries we only accept the best when it comes to molds and plastic materials. We understand that when it comes to thermoplastics, quality and efficiency is everything. With the right training and the best mold and plastic suppliers, our all American plastic products are consistently top of the line. Your product and brand reputation is our main focus.
What is thermoplastic injection molding?
Simply put, thermoplastics are plastic materials that can continuously be melted down and re-shaped. With an injection molding machine, plastic grains can be melted down and then injected into a mold at extremely high pressures. In the mold the plastic can be cooled in a matter of seconds. When the plastic is cooled enough to hold its shape, the mold then opens and the plastic is released, and ready for assembly or packaging. The high pressures from the machine is what allows a mold to be filled tight regardless of odd shapes.
What are some of the advantages to injection molding?
There are a lot of advantages to having products injection molded. The most common advantage is the high production possibilities. Machines can be programmed to create the same part repeatedly, making flawless parts 27/7. At high volumes injection molding is a popular choice due to production speeds and low production costs.

What is urethane foam casting?
Urethane foam casting is a process that starts as a two-part liquid that is mixed and poured into a metal or silicone mold. As the liquid chemicals react to each other they produce heat and begin to expand. Using this process we can make a wide variety of parts that do not actually look like foam. From hard and rigid to soft and flexible, there are a variety of different foams to choose from. Let us help you select the right one for your project.
Using a high density rigid foam we can create finished parts that are strong with a smooth, hard surface. While lower density foams have much more expansion to give you a lighter weight part. If desired, we can mold other parts inside the foam and control the finished weight of a part. Controlling the weight allows us to make floats that can be used as liquid level sensors. The hard urethane skin allows the part to hold up in a wide variety of harsh environments.
Flexible foams are softer and usually have a rubber skin. Like rigid foam, it can be cast at a variety of different densities.
What are the benefits of working with cast foam?
First of all, cast foam is not Styrofoam. Even though cast foam is lightweight, it can be very strong with a hard surface finish that can hold up to a variety of applications. Cast foam has a wide range of applications. Contact us to find out if cast foam is right for your project.
