Injection Molding

Porous products are essential in the injection molding process, utilized specifically to vent gases during manufacturing, thus protecting products from defects. In the realm of injection molding, Mott porous products have been a key component in mold vent applications, serving a diverse range of industries including plastic, rubber, and metal molders for over six decades. By efficiently venting molds in the injection molding process, manufacturers can effectively avoid the adverse effects of entrapped or evolved gases, which are typically caused by heated air in the mold, steam generation from water in binders, and combustion from binders and coatings.
