Notes

1. “Molding or moulding (see spelling differences) is the process of manufacturing by shaping pliable raw material using a rigid frame or model called a pattern.

A mold or mould is a hollowed-out block that is filled with a liquid like plastic, glass, metal, or ceramic raw materials. The liquid hardens or sets inside the mold, adopting its shape. A mold is the counterpart to a cast. The manufacturer who makes the molds is called the moldmaker. A release agent is typically used to make removal of the hardened/set substance from the mold easier. Typical uses for molded plastics include molded furniture, molded household goods, molded cases, and structural materials.

Types of molding include:

Blow molding

Compaction plus sintering

Compression molding

Expandable bead molding

Extrusion molding

Foam molding

Injection molding

Laminating

Reaction injection molding

Matched mold

Matrix molding

Plastic moulding

Pressure plug assist molding

Rotational molding (or Rotomolding)
