Resin Casting

Resin Casting is a quick and economical means of producing tons of plastic parts – with practically end-material properties – for testing, sales and marketing samples, and low-volume production.  Available urethanes, silicones and epoxies provide a wide range of rigid and elastomeric properties.  

Vaupell has the breadth of capability and experience to offer the best mold method – including cast silicon, fully machined, and everything in between.  We provide the full range of processing techniques necessary to get the best results for any specific job.  

Representative features/applications of resin casting include:

  • Durable, rapid and inexpensive test parts
