Overmolded TPE Ice Scraper

End-Use Case Study
  • Innovative Materials Transform Part Design

Overmolded TPE Ice ScraperProCo Technologies, a division of Rolco, Inc., developed this scraper using multi-shot molding techniques and thermoplastic materials from RTP Company for both shots:

1st Shot
RTP 100 Series polypropylene: chemically coupled with 20% glass fiber. This lightweight compound provides excellent stiffness without a large loading of glass.

2nd Shot
RTP 2800 B Series olefinic thermoplastic elastomer: with a 40 Shore A durometer hardness. TPE provides excellent grip performance, chemical resistance and an ideal balance of performance and price.

Rolco, Inc., a custom injection molder, produces precision dual material components using multi-shot techniques. By combining what would traditionally be two separate parts into a single homogeneous component via multi-shot molding, Rolco can provide its customers with higher quality products at a lower cost.
