Injection Molding Materials

Injection molding materials paired with advanced technologies provide solutions for any application.
PTJ TECH provides hundreds of injection molding materials solutions, with a few proprietary materials engineered right within their facilities. Many material offerings are tied in with a specific technology due to the nature of the manufacturing processes. Below, the materials (which are often indicated by the technology they are married to) have been categorized into model/ prototype parts and functioning durable parts capable of meeting production requirements. It is best to consult with our Project Engineers if your material requires regimented standards and for further specifications.
