Deflashing: Rubber, Plastic and Metal Residue Removal

Preparing Injection Molded Parts for Customer Use

Injection molding allows for fast, precision manufacturing of any variety of parts in a number of materials. One of the tradeoffs of this speed production is the deposition of small bits of residual material called “flashing” on each part. The parts can’t be used in this condition – that’s where deflashing comes into play.

Deflashing is the process of removing the residual rubber, metal (such as titanium, stainless steel) or plastic material. ISO Finishing uses centrifugal barrel finishing machines as a fast and cost effective way to deflash multiple parts. Utilizing a custom recipe, parts are combined with media, water and soap and processed to a set time and speed.

Once the “flashing” is removed, the parts are rinsed and sent through a secondary wash, rinse and dry cycle to remove any residual media particles. The parts are then ready for use by the customer.
