Compression Molding Technology

  • Raymond W. Meyer


It now is well understood that a satisfactory molded fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) part results only after the part has been adequately designed, a proper mold has been procured, and a suitable molding material is employed. Insufficient attention to any one of these three factors can result in a disaster for the molder. In the early days of compound development the primary emphasis was placed on the materials, since they were new and novel. Attempts to resolve problems generally took the form of materials changes. Some of the headaches incurred by molders were the result of their using poorly designed molds or trying to mold improperly designed parts.
