An Update on Automation Technology for Latex Dip Molded Products and Coatings
|Date Published||July 21, 2009|
The process called "dip molding" has its roots in the USA and United Kingdom. Dip molding involves the lowering of a form or mandrel into a polymer bath, attracting a thin liquid film deposition onto the form or mandrel after rising from the bath. The film is dried for subsequent removal from the form, after which the form or mandrel returns to the start of the process. The dip molding process can take as few as 4 steps, or as many as over 50 steps to complete a dipping cycle.
