Clear plastic parts are utilized in many prototyping applications to achieve optical functions, view the inside of products, or enhance aesthetics. Createproto provides a range of solutions for custom clear parts and optical components, including CNC machining, cnc milling service, injection molding, and vacuum casting. We have top-notch expertise and polishing techniques to achieve optical clarity on plastic parts, and we fully support optical prototype development projects for all business types.

Clear Cast Urethane Performance Specifications

Witness high-quality clear prototypes manufactured using the latest technology and a variety of prototyping techniques. It is available in a vast range of materials, including acrylic, polycarbonate, and urethane.

Master pattern:  Clear casting needs high transparency that is required to be acquired by the use of acrylic material by CNC machining. Standing seamless with 1500# sanding paper, the polishing paste is used to remove the sanding mark.

Silicone rubber mold: The silicone mold material is to be compatible with clear casting resin. Also, finding the right release agent and applying it effectively is essential.

Mold life: For clear casting 12-15 copies efficiently, up to 20 copies per mold.

Accuracy of cast parts: It offers a standard tolerance of +/-0.15 mm/ 100mm, the highest precision can be +/-0.05 mm.

Minimum wall thickness: It is essential to have a minimum wall thickness of about 0.75 mm. According to the recommendation, 105mm would suit the best.

Maximum part dimensions: The entire size of the mold is limited to a size of 1200*600*600mm for clear casting and the maximum volume is assumed to be 4 liters.

Finishing cast parts: Polishing the finishing parts comes at the epitome. The parts require the removal of parting lines and sprues that give the finest touch to the finished products.

Typical lead time: Up to 20 parts in 15 days is assumed to be the perfect graph according to volume and specifications.

Urethane Casting: The Perfect Solution for Small-Batch Clear Prototyping

Urethane vacuum casting is the ideal solution for creating small quantities of optically clear plastic prototypes quickly and affordably. Createproto has extensive experience in this field and can produce parts with impeccable surface finish and the highest optical pattern details.

  • Our CNC machining services use highly polished acrylic master to achieve an impeccable surface finish.
  • We use precision machined masters to ensure the best optical pattern details.
  • We also apply the correct casting process and use appropriate silicone and polyurethane materials.
  • Our team firmly chooses the right release agent and applies it effectively to avoid tackiness and surface defects.
  • We use the latest and unique overmolding process to achieve a single urethane part with a two-color or two-component design

High-Quality Clear Parts Injection Molded in Low Quantities

Rapid injection molding for clear plastic is a revolutionary process that allows you to test low-volume production runs using the same materials and technology that will be used for final production. Createproto is a leading provider of rapid injection molding services for clear plastic parts. Our team of experienced technicians can help you with all aspects of the rapid injection molding process, from design to production. We also offer a wide range of post-processing services, such as polishing and electroplating, to give your clear plastic parts the perfect finish.

Clear optical prototypes are used to simulate the performance and appearance of final production cnc milling parts in a variety of applications, including automotive lighting, aerospace, medical, consumer electronics, and a lot more.

Polycarbonate and Acrylic are the two prime and popular choices for clear optical prototypes for their exceptional clarity, durability, and versatility.

CNC machining is definitely better than injection molding for prototypes as it is faster and more flexible. Depending on the complexity you can have a prototype in a matter of days or even hours.

Prototypes help the automotive industry and their engineers to test and refine their designs before they are mass-produced. This helps to ensure that the vehicles are safe, reliable, and efficient.

It can. Depending on the materials used in the clear prototyping process, the prototypes produced by Createproto can withstand harsh conditions too.
