The construction industry is one of Australia’s largest and fastest growing industries. Both commercial and residential construction is growing and there is always a need for more workers, more suppliers and more materials. With recent years there has been delays and difficulties with getting various materials for use in construction. Timber, steel and other various materials have been through stages of being difficult to get and the prices increasing due to demand. However there is an alternative. At All Plastic Moulds we are able to recreate many different items needed for construction. By replacing with the moulded plastic it means that you are able to keep your construction going and not worry about supply demands. But what can you use moulded plastic for in construction?
When it comes to construction, there is always going to be electricals that need to be added. Electricals can pose a very serious risk to those in the area if they are not properly secured and covered. Housing your electricals properly is not only a legal requirement but also a safety requirement.
Due to the nature of the plastics used in moulding, it is a great option for electrical housing. It helps to insulate and protect the wires.
Cooling and heating systems
Plastic injection moulding is an ideal material to be used in both cooling and heating systems. The plastics can help to provide insulation and in turn reduce the running costs, save energy and Co2.
Throughout the construction industry, plastic injection moulding can be used for various elements of both heating and cooling systems. They can be used in air conditioning systems, ventilation systems and refrigeration applications. They can also be used in heating systems such as boilers, heat pumps, under-floor heating set-ups, solar power photovoltaic systems and more.
One of the biggest benefits of using plastic injection moulding in these systems is that the plastic is not only weather tight meaning it can be used outside in harsher weather conditions but it is also resistant to chemical damage.
Large commercial projects
Plastic injection moulding is present in many commercial construction applications, some you may not even have thought of. Some of the applications include:
- Conduits for concrete beams
- Insulation materials
- Specialist flooring panels.
It can also be used in roofing vents, drainage components and railing gaskets.
Because of the versatility of plastic, various elements can be custom made in any shape or size to suit the project it is needed for. Plastic injection moulding is a game changer for the commercial construction industry.
There are also many different used for plastic injection moulding in the residential construction industry.
From decking fasteners, drainpipes and brackets to door handles, drawer knobs and decorative features, along with electrical housing and insulation assistance.
Plastic is ideal in residential construction as it is strong, resilient and difficult to damage. It will not rust, discolour or rot over time.
There are many different machines and tools that are used in construction and at times there may be pieces that break or get damaged. It can be difficult to get replacement parts and this can cause delays with your project.
Plastic injection moulding is an ideal alternative as you can have a custom piece made, specially for you and your machine.
If you need a piece made that is not easily accessible or that will help you to create a project that is different from others we can assist in creating the tool or attachment that you require.
At All Mould Plastics we are able to make your dream a reality when it comes to finishing your construction project.
