Why Use Over moulding?

One of the key reasons for using over moulding is to improve the visual design and functionality of a product. The process also allows for crucial details to be added to a product for consumer use. A good example of over moulding is a toothbrush. These usually have a soft touch TPE moulded over the top of a more rigid plastic. The TPE will give the user extra grip so the toothbrush doesn’t slip out of the hand when being used, as well as being more comfortable to use.


Other reasons for using over moulding include:

  • Adds flexibility to a rigid part.
  • Cuts out extra assembly time to glue the parts together.
  • Provides a soft touch surface to a rigid product.

Over moulding Applications

  • Automotive
  • Medical
  • Electronic Devices

Plastic over moulding is an injection moulding process where one plastic is moulded over the top of another.

This is usually a softer material such as TPE that is moulded over the top of a harder plastic. If the correct materials are selected, a strong bond should be formed with no need for any extra adhesives.
