Plastic injection moulding solutions for construction products and outdoors
Plastic injected products moulded for the outdoors need to be tough, UV stable, and innovative to continually better the experience and durability for the end user.
Committed to supporting our customers
- Analysis of environmental impact and required material characteristics
- Assessment of product key characteristics for DFM process
- Review supply chain needs to optimise resources
- Stock profile and provision, designed for product availability and logistics
This is why Tex Plastics design to innovate and provide value to our partners, and for the end customer. From the selection of highly technical polymer’s to withstand the UV and extremes of climate conditions, to the inherent functional requirements needed.
Whether your product needs to be durable to withstand an explosion, the rigours of high use or simply be a cosmetic façade, you can be sure Tex Plastics have the experience and technical know-how to engineer you the right solution. Our target customers and partners are the next generation of innovators. Those that have an idea for a new product, a better product, and need a partner to make their sketch a reality.
Cost reduction for finishing product line converted to polypropylene
As wood was replaced by uPVC in exterior construction, now Precision Plastic Moulded PVC begins to replace uPVC. It gives all the aesthetic benefits of uPVC but at a reduced cost and with some key environmental benefits.
With advances in technical polymers, the development of UV stable product has brought about significant changes in the options available to anyone thinking about using plastic as an external construction material. The new polymers can bring several benefits, from fire safety to shortened lead-times.
Unique water collection products
The manufacturer had developed a range of plastic products used for drainage and water collection. Their challenge to Tex Plastics was 'how can we improve our product range, whilst reducing costs and inventory?'
Allowing the technical team to access the wider product range enabled them to rethink how the whole range was manufactured. The innovative ‘re-thought’ product range optimised the key functional aspects and significantly reduced unit costs for the manufactured parts.
Utilising the core component as one design and designing inserts for options rather than individual moulds. It resulted in a greater production run of the core component, reducing unit costs and an innovative approach to the toolmaking process also reduced the number of different tools.
Technical plastic casing for swimming pool pump
When a UK based leading swimming pool manufacturer took the decision to manufacture a product in the UK rather than buy in from the USA, it needed a technical plastic moulder. Manufacturing in the UK meant full control over product quality and price caused by currency volatility.
The casings needed to be moulded in Glassfilled Polypropylene. This is a mixture of glass fibre filler plus Polypropylene to give improved strength and rigidity. Other components required a PPO material which gives affordable high heat resistance, good electrical properties, excellent hydrolytic properties, with excellent dimensional stability, good processibility and low specific gravity.
Perfect for swimming pool pumps which run for sustained periods!
