Over-molding

Pilot runs, low-volume production, bridge tooling

Overmolding is a process where a

single part is created using two or more different materials in combination.

Advantages of Overmolding

Strength

Rubber-like TPEs/TPVs on the exterior of plastic parts can help the piece resist water or absorb sound. The TPE/TPV layer can also serve as electrical insulation.

Durability

Overmolding can help keep dust and water out of plastic components, making them last longer.

Efficiency

Overmolding can help add a second layer that can make grips more comfortable on any parts that people hold or grasp.
