Rompa offers the full range of thermoplastics. “Each type of material behaves in its own unique manner,” project manager Fred Bijsterveld emphasises. “The degree of shrinkage, how fast the material can be taken out of the mould, its flow properties and the rate of crystallisation are just a few of the variables in play. During the DFM process, we evaluate the manufacturability of the product. We also select and (if needed) advise about the most suitable type of plastic to use.” In some cases, Rompa tests various materials together with the client.
