End Cap for Lighting Industry

Custom Injection Molding of Phenolic Plastic End Cap for the Lighting IndustryInterested in a molding material that provides excellent insulation and electrical performance; a Lighting customer contacted us about our thermoset molding services for an end cap used within a fluorescent lighting insulator application.

Using Durez 32962 – a phenolic thermoset material – this end cap was injection-compression molded from a 42-Cavity tool within a 250-ton thermoset molding machine. The final part weighs only 1.6 grams and is visually inspected by an automated vision inspection system before being shipped to a customer plant in Texas.
