The demand for sports equipment is being further boosted on a global scale by rising awareness of the advantages of living a healthy lifestyle and the value of participating in sports and fitness activities.
However, Sports equipment makers know that durability with ergonomically designed is a vital attribute for successful sports products along with features such as rigidity or flexibility, physical appearance, and functionality. they need ongoing innovations and quick technological progress to keep up with shifting consumer tastes. That’s where plastic injection molding or over molding comes in, which can enhance the performance in the end-use application and marketability of such sporting goods.

The use of a wide variety of thermoplastic elastomer materials as an over-molding material onto engineering plastics as rigid substrates material to make molded products. It can be used to enhance many features of product design. Because over-molding is the injection molding process where one material is molded onto a second material (typically a rigid plastic). It can provide a soft feel and non-slip grip surface for improved product features or performance. It can also be used as an insulator of heat, vibration, or electricity. Overmolding eliminates the need for adhesives and primers to bond thermoplastic elastomers to rigid substrates.

While, with the market trends in combination with the innovative molding techniques available have placed a high demand on thermoplastic elastomer suppliers to produce compounds capable of bonding to the different engineering plastics available.

    SILIKE developing a variety of Si-TPV elastomers to serve sporting &leisure equipment, personal care, power &hand tools, lawn and garden tools, toys, eyewear, cosmetic packaging, healthcare devices, smart wearable devices, portable electronics, hand-held electronics, household, other appliances markets, with a low compression set and long-lasting silky feel, and stain resistance, these grades meet application-specific needs for aesthetics, safety, antimicrobial and grippy technologies, chemical resistance, and more.

  • Sustainable-and-Innovative-21

    In addition, the product offers processing properties similar to those of traditional TPE materials, as well as excellent engineering physical properties and acceptable compression set at room and elevated temperatures. Si-TPV elastomers typically require no secondary processing, resulting in shorter cycle times and lower production costs. This elastomeric material provides a better silicone rubber texture to overmolded finished products.

Application

Si-TPV soft over-molded material provides sustainable choices for an abundance of Sports & Leisure equipment parts fitness goods and protective gear. that is possible for application on such devices including, cross-trainers, switches and push buttons on gym equipment, tennis rackets, badminton rackets, handlebar grips on bicycles, bicycles odometers, Jump rope handles, handle grips in golf clubs, handles of fishing rods, sports wearable wristbands for smartwatches and swim watches, swim goggles, swim fins, outdoor hiking trekking poles and other handle grips, etc...

Bond Requirements

SILIKE Si-TPVs Overmolding can adhere to other materials through injection molding. suitable for insert molding and or multiple material molding. Multiple material molding is otherwise known as Multi-shot injection molding, Two-Shot Molding, or 2K molding.

Si-TPVs have excellent adhesion to a variety of thermoplastics, from polypropylene and polyethylene to all kinds of engineering plastics.

When selecting an Si-TPV for an over-molding application, the substrate type should be considered. Not all Si-TPVs will bond to all types of  substrates.
