n (offset molding) A modification of injection molding designed for molding thermosets. An elongated nozzle or “jet” is attached to the front of the molding cylinder and is provided with a high-watt-density heating element and means for rapid cooling. It is also necessary to control cylinder temperatures carefully to prevent premature hardening of the resin. (Strong AB (2000) Plastics materials and processing. Prentice Hall, Columbus, OH).
