Hi @andrew31! I’m glad you’re thinking of ways to benefit communities near you! We’re seeing that even just helping clean up trash and showing people the potential of recycled plastic is a great start 🙂

It’s hard to estimate the time it takes to make a product, since it depends on many factors, like:
* Type of plastic you’re using and it’s state (clean, dirty, etc)
* Amount of plastic you need
* Do you have a mold already?
* Have you done any before?

Like anything, the first times will take some experimentation, but you’ll then optimize your process and get better at it.

So the best way to know is to try it!

Check out our topic on Injection Molding for more details on our own experiments.

Also, feel free to post your email or write to us at [email protected] if you’d like more info and costs and our machines.

Cheers!

We also now have the injection machine ready! We’ve been having a blast making our own recycled plastic products! Check it this post for some examples 🙂

Feel free to email me at [email protected] or post your email here if you’d like more details on either machine! We’re currently able to ship anywhere in México and the United States.

Cheers and let the recycling begin!

@xxxolivierxxx Thanks for the cross-post

@dzspain Thanks! I’m glad our work is helping others. Huge shoutout to my brother @nachonaranjas who’s been hard at work to get our machines going!

@n-w-b I’m having issues creating an account in the wiki, but I’ll definitely post an article about our molding techniques once that’s sorted out. I’ve emailed [email protected] for help…

In the mean time, see the info in our topic and feel free to ask questions there! We’ll post some more details and photos there soon.

Injection Molding Tests

@xxxolivierxxx Thanks for the suggestion. We’re also experimenting with concrete and grout, and have found that even combining materials (e.g., concrete for the outer structure of the mold and plaster for the part touching the model) yield to better results! We’re documenting some of that process and will post more details soon 🙂

@davehakkens Thanks! Glad you liked it and found it inspiring!

Yeah, working with clay is awesome; the kids are loving it!

Regarding durability, we’re seeing it varies quite a bit, anywhere from 1 to 5 uses. Seems the main issue is you need the mold to resist the pressure form the plastic being pushed into all its grooves. Thus, how easily it cracks seems to be due to several factors, such as:
* The shape of the model: a sphere is going to last longer than the crocodile above
* The temperature of the plastic: higher temp means softer plastic means less pressure
* How long you let the mold dry: this may be obvious, but when you’re excited to try it, it’s easy to use it as soon as it feels dry!

We’re experimenting with different materials to see if we find a better molding technique, so we’ll report back when we have something!

@ismaelgonzalez it’s just regular plaster, but you might as well experiment with different materials to compare results!

And here’s our first attempt at making something functional 😛

The overall molding process we’re doing here is:
1. Create model with clay (or use existing product)
2. Fill container halfway with plaster
3. Place lubricated model in plaster
4. When plaster somewhat sets, create alignment groves with a coin
5. Once it’s fully dried, lubricate plaster
6. Place drill bit for injection hole
7. Fill rest of container with plaster
8. Remove model once mold fully dries
9. Clamp model halves and place mold firmly against injection machine (This can get tricky; we used a car jack to press the mold upwards)
10. Inject, wait a bit, and admire your new creation!

Let us know how this works for you!
