    Structural reaction injection moulding

    Structural Reaction Injection Moulding (SRIM) is a process that produces components with high fibre density and is a more durable and cost-effective alternative to traditional GRP moulding.

    Structural reaction injection mouldingWhat is SRIM?

    Typically SRIM parts are used in a wide range of markets:

    • Vehicle (buses, automotive and truck)
    • Medical
    • Aerospace

    With SRIM, Glass Fibre reinforcement material is laid into a mould with a cavity in the shape of the product. The mould is closed and polyurethane (PU) is injected into the cavity by pressure. This process produces components with high fibre density and is a more durable and cost-effective alternative to traditional GRP moulding.

    The SRIM process often uses a UEV (Vinyl Skin) or a thin gauge vacuum forming laid into the mould initially. The glass fibre and PU then becomes a reinforcement media on the reverse of the UEV or forming, and with the close mould process produces a rigid component that can be designed with additional stiffening ribs and a variety of inserts for component fixing.

    Typical components are dashboards and interior vehicle trim.
