  • Reduced material allows it to be a Sustainable method
  • Wide range to match any other application 
  • High-Quality products
  • Confidence in course of action

If you need the best ways to have your product be protective in certain environmental effects, or if the correct endurance for certain mechanical distress will be put upon, urethane casting has a wide range of options to match requirements.

In general, the urethane casting method is used to produce parts from metal alloys that cannot withstand the heat required by conventional methods. It uses a vacuum chamber to draw molten metal into a mold cavity where it cools and hardens. This technique is commonly used to cast aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and zinc alloys.

Application of Urethane Casting for the Automotive Parts

  • Higher quality surface finish 
  • Lower manufacturing cost

The process of urethane casting helps to simulate the majority of characteristics of thermoplastic materials without limits in complex geometrical shapes. Therefore, allowing us to make your idea a reality, making sure your design stays as you designed it.

The vacuum casting technique has become popular because it offers many advantages over conventional methods, for example:

Headlining 
A-Pillar 
B-Pillar 
C-Pillar
Hood
Trunk
Instrument Panel 
Meter Combi
Box glove 
Center console
Door Trim
Windscreen
Audio panel
AC Panel 

Also, the types of materials to use are diverse and capable of optimizing each creation. There are several types of materials used, these include metal alloys, polymers, ceramics, and composites. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages.

The type of materials better suited for a specific manufactured part with a urethane casting compound would be determined by the product’s needs and the customer’s requirements.

There are also different types of finishes and colors ARRK Asia provides as options to choose from Colored or tinted to a wide range of color options matching PMS – Pantone, RAL, or even provided color samples.

There are three main types of finishes: matte, semi-gloss, and gloss. ARRK Asia creates accurate and high-quality cast copies with an immaculate finish from start to finish. Our Low Volume Production solutions can provide your automotive parts with the look and best functional outcome for their intended use. Contact us or fill out our form to Get a Quote.
