Case Study: Cryogenic Deflashing for Silicone Distal Handles

Nitrofreeze® cryogenic deflashing provides part molders and OEMs with a fast, consistent way to remove flash from silicone distal handles. Cryogenic deflashing uses gaseous nitrogen to freeze the parts, and plastic media to break-off the surface imperfections and excess material. This safe, clean process is also cost-effective because it supports batch processing. The report below […]

Five Reasons for Flash on Plastic and Rubber Parts

What Is Residual Mold Flash? Flash is excess plastic or rubber material that forms on the surface of molded parts. Flash, or flashing, affects the part’s surface finish and may also interfere with sealing. Flash is usually a cosmetic defect, but molders want to avoid the appearance of thin, unwanted lines that can suggest poor […]
