Structural plastics for cosmetic enclosures and internal parts
Why FM Corporation?
FM is a leader in the structural foam industry - producing low-pressure, low-stress molded parts up to 150 lbs. and 10 feet with in-house finishing and decoration.
Over the last 40 years, FM has grown to be one of the premier structural foam molders in the country. The structural foam process is a form of injection molding that offers an affordable way to gain high strength and rigidity as a structural molded part. Structural parts have a porous foam core sandwiched between two solid outer layers, which make them ideal for enclosures and structural internal parts.
Structural foam plastics offer:
Improved stiffness-to-weight ratio
Longer tool life
Sound dampening characteristics
Great mechanical strength
FM offers several low-pressure, low-stress structural molding processes in a range of resins, from inexpensive polyethylene to specialty engineering grade resins, including gas assist injection molding, gas counter pressure molding, and external gas molding.
FM’s in-house value-add services include:
Continuous paint line system
Conductive spray-on EMI and RFI shielding
Pad printing, screen printing, and hot stamping
Partial and full assembly options
Precision inspection and testing
Materials range from commodity resins such as polyethylene and polypropylene to engineering grades such as glass reinforced polycarbonate and polycarbonate/abs blends. Any injection molding material can be molded as a foam with chemical blowing agents or as a gas assist injection molded part.
