Bayer’s Polyurethanes Division has continued to improve the processing characteristics of its Bayflex 180 reinforced reaction injection molding (RRIM) technology. The modifications translate to advantages for processors, including better material flow, lower cycle times and higher productivity.

Bayflex 180 technology exhibits improved release properties, which increases the number of parts that can be removed from the tool without spraying an external mold release onto the surface. “We’ve developed innovative new technology that allows us to improve cycle time by allowing us to get higher release multiples. This translates into lower cycle times and higher productivity,” says Tom Petriko of Bayer.
