Custom Structural Foam Moldings

Structural foam molding and custom designs.

As structural foam molding gains increased attention, you may be wondering whether it’s time to replace metal or traditional plastic components with lighter and stronger engineered plastics.

Structural Foam and Custom Designs

Far more than the simple application of additives, the key to success in this type of molding is in the ability to incorporate structural foam into a custom design.

When the design is just right, the result is high productivity, cost savings and lighter plastic components that are exceptionally rigid on the exterior and foamed at the core.

Structural foam-molded plastics can replace many types of materials, including wood, concrete and fiberglass.

Institutional Experience

Indeed, the measure of Ferriot’s true capacity is our institutional expertise in resin selection to support innovative solutions.

With a veteran team of engineers, we design and engineer custom structural foam solutions that didn’t exist yesterday (except in the minds of our customers).

Design for Manufacturability

Ferriot - structural foam moldings

Our molding experience covers the knowledge of good Design for Manufacturability, a comprehensive understanding of all thermoplastic resin families and injection-mold design expertise. Typically, we stock more than 150 varieties of resins at any given time in our 200,000-square-foot facility, conveniently located to the major markets of the Midwest and East Coast.

As one of the few “systems houses” in North America, Ferriot can step in at any point in the manufacturing process because our engineering, design, molding and tooling and finishing technologies can be applied to products in concept development or at any other stage of production.

Ferriot’s manufacturing services extend through final production, complete with custom color, cosmetic finishing and assembly.
