Utilizing similar machines as for Rubber Moulding, our Thermoset Moulding is a key part of our business. Dough Moulding Compound (DMC) is widely used in switchgear manufacture due to its electrical resistance/insulation properties, and high heat capability. Synapco is the largest New Zealand based DMC component supplier to this industry segment.
DMC has the following material properties:
- creep resistance
- thermal stability
- dimensional stability
- compressive strength.
Synapco has experience moulding most types of thermoplastic and thermoset resins. We are happy to give clients an unbiased assessment of the material and process best suited to their product needs.
