Two-Shot Molds (also three and four-shot) are a cost-effective method to produce plastic parts with two or more colors molded at the same time, such as radio control buttons or dashboard faceplates.
Two-Shot molding is a relatively new, rapidly growing technology. It is replacing older, two-step systems, eliminating a secondary process to add logos, graphics or text. New computer technology and advanced materials have promoted the growth of the two-shot process.
The two-shot process first injects one color material into the mold, then injects the second color around or over the first. There are also multi-shot processes for parts with more than two colors (tail-lights can have up to four colors, for example).
The two shot process allows you to:
Some of the benefits of producing plastic parts using a multi-shot molding process include:
Designers and engineers are constantly coming up with new uses for plastic parts produced with the two, three or four step molding process. Just a few of the many types of these products include:
