Molded thermoset plastic products offer numerous advantages over other plastic molding processes, including outstanding structural rigidity and strength and lower tooling costs.
Have you ever wondered what the difference between thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic is?
Custom plastic molding and die-cast molding have been compared for decades. When it comes down to a side-by-side comparison, companies that convert from metal to plastic experience many benefits from the transition.
Osborne Industries breaks down the differences between these two types of well-known polymers. Read more via the link above.
Plastic design guidelines are crucial for polydicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) molding because they allow for easier part moldability, reduce overall production time, and help to ensure the quality of a final product. Learn some fundamental guidelines you’ll want to consider when preparing pDCPD parts for reaction injection molding.
Abrasion-resistant plastics with a low coefficient of friction are highly sought after materials for use in a wide variety of industrial applications. Plastic components that require contact with mating surfaces must offer outstanding resistance to wear. Plastics that are abrasion resistant are designed to retain their appearance, and also reduce costs associated with maintenance, wear a...
Custom thermoset molding services range across a variety of industries, each with a unique set of materials and part specifications. Both the resin transfer molding (RTM) process and reaction injection molding (RIM) process offer specific capabilities that can be applied to virtually any project depending on the manufacturing needs, and they are often customized based on industry.
Osborne has been a long-time supplier of fiberglass-reinforced composite aerial lift-platforms and other components for Altec’s utility vehicles. Osborne’s long history with closed-molding via Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) technology has allowed them to remain one of Altec’s top-producing suppliers since the two firms first collaborated in the mid-1980s.

Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) with Osborne includes custom-formulating liquid thermosetting composites and in-mold fiberglass reinforcements to mold components that meet your specifications. Take full advantage of RTM quality and design flexibility such as nonporous surface finish, in-mold cores, in-mold gel coating, and more with turnkey guidance from Osborne.
At many RTM (Resin Transfer Molding) and RIM (Reaction Injection Molding) molding shops the physical properties of your parts are limited to the resins and catalysts available from their distributors. Osborne Industries have plastics engineers and chemists who can formulate resins and reinforcing materials to meet your specific applications.
High tooling costs and fast chemical reaction times typically rule out many plastic molding processes when manufacturing very large plastic parts. Osborne Industries has overcome this obstacle in two ways:
First, Osborne Industries can manufacture high quality, composite molds, that can last for many years, making thousands of parts for a fraction of what tradional metal molds cost.
Large Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) Parts
Large fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) parts are typically made by hand layup, because it typically has lower tooling costs, compared to closed mold process, like Resin Transfer Molding (RTM). With hand layup, it is difficult to control quality, and the part only has one "finished" side. Osborne Industries addresses these issues with RTM
Osborne Industries is an OEM supplier of thermoset plastic parts utilizing Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) and Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) processes. Normally, RIM and RTM molding cannot compete economically with other low-volume processes because molds are typically made of aluminum, steel or nickel. Osborne Industries has overcome this by successfully developing low-cost composite mo...
Osborne Delivers A New Dimension to RIM Molding
They have successfully developed low-cost composite tooling and production methods that enable Osborne RIM to be highly competitive - even at very low production volumes.
Shown is concrete mixer truck fender, made of durable polyurethane resin, that can withstand the rigors of a construction site.
OEM manufacturers frequently substitute plastic parts for metal parts where weight and chemical corrosion resistance are important. Plastic components are not typically thought of as viable alternatives for metal in rough, abrasive environments. The engineers and chemists at Osborne Industries have over 35 years experience with reinforced thermoset resins for challenging applications
In addition to Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) and Reaction Injection Molding (RIM), Osborne also does Structural RIM (SRIM) and Reinforced RIM (RRIM) molding. We use the most efficient methods to mold polyester, polyurethane, polyurea, pDCPD Telene®, and our own patented Rutene® polymers. We also have the capability and know-how to mold epoxies and polyimides.
