With over 15 years of injection mold experience, we have processed different types of materials in many different industries. Our approach to process development allows us to create the optimal process for your material and application.

Our experience with a large range of materials allows us to mitigate any potential risks that might be unique to your application. 

Materials We Use

Check out (some of) the materials we use for customers across many different markets! Have a project that requires a material not listed? Let us know!

ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene)

High-strength general-purpose engineering plastic, used for many commercial products.

HDPE (high-density polyethylene)

Excellent strength-to-weight ratio and chemical resistance.

LDPE (low-density polyethylene)

A flexible and tough material with lower density versus HDPE. LDPE does not react to acids, bases, or alcohols.

PA 6 (polyamide 6, nylon 6)

Offers increased mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat, and/or chemical resistance.

PA 6/6 (polyamide 6/6, nylon 6/6)

Offers increased mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat, and/or chemical resistance.

PC (polycarbonate)

A clear or colored, lightweight, glass-like plastic that is heavily used across multiple industries. PC is impact resistant and holds great feature detail.

PET (polyethylene terephthalate, Rynite)
Also called PETE. A clear, strong, and lightweight PE resin heavily used in food packaging, jars, and more. The material is food-safe and recyclable.

PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoates)

A natural group of biodegradable polyesters that are synthesized by microorganisms, including through bacterial fermentation of sugars or lipids, and classified as a bioplastic.

PLA (polylactic acid)

A biodegradable and renewable plastic. PLA has a relatively low glass transition temperature and is common in short-use applications.

POM (acetal polyoxymethylene, Delrin)

Good moisture resistance, high wear-resistance, and low friction.

PS (polystyrene)

A clear, hard, and more brittle material widely used for food packaging, clamshell containers, and even disposable cutlery.

PP (polypropylene)

Polypropylene has excellent electrical properties and little or no moisture absorption. It carries light loads for a long period in varying temperatures. It can be molded into parts requiring chemical or corrosion resistance.

TPE (thermoplastic elastomer)

A broad class of elastomers that behave like a thermoset with high flex and elasticity but process like a thermoplastic through molding.

TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin)

A flexible plastic with good chemical resistance but lower temperature resistance compared to PP.

TPV (thermoplastics elastomer, vulcanized rubber (Santoprene))

An excellent elastomer with high versatility due to temperature resistance, compression, and elasticity.

Colorants & Additives

MCM partners with multiple US-based color concentrate manufacturers to provide you with the exact color you need for your project. We can use PMS Pantones or color-match existing products to make sure you get exactly what you need.

Our experts can also help guide you in the right direction for all special additives including UV stabilization, impact modifiers, flame retardants, and many more.

Sustainable Options

MCM and its employees are dedicated to exploring and growing sustainable industry opportunities. With the addition of our sister company Green World Products, we can design and develop your sustainable idea from start to a finished product.
