Molds for Compression Molding Simpler than injection molds No sprue and runner system in a compression mold Process itself generally limited to simpler part geometries due to lower flow capabilities of TS materials Mold must be heated, usually by electric resistance, steam, or hot oil circulation Typical compression-molded products: Electric plugs, sockets, and housings; pot handles, and dinnerware plates

Transfer Molding TS charge is loaded into a chamber immediately ahead of mold cavity, where it is heated; pressure is then applied to force soft polymer to flow into heated mold where it cures Two variants: Pot transfer molding - charge is injected from a "pot" through a vertical sprue channel into cavity Plunger transfer molding – plunger injects charge from a heated well through channels into cavity
