Deflashing can be defined as a process for the removal of excess moulding compound or flash or resin from the material moulded. The irregularity in shape may be due to the impurities in the mould or the physical conditions such as temperature, pressure etc. There are changes in the chemistry of the polymers when they get transformed or moulded in shapes can affect the surface finish of the materials, therefore deflashing has become an integral part of the moulding of plastics, rubber and other such material components. Chemical deflasher can be used across a wide range of applications including plastic moulding (both thermoset and thermoplastic), rubbers and for the manufacture of a number of precision parts such as gaskets, seals, washer, fittings, and also in the medical devices. A number of high precision parts are made and fabricated with the use of chemical deflashers that removes the excess flash and improves the surface finish of the material moulded. Cryogenic deflashing which uses liquid nitrogen is gaining popularity in the global chemical deflasher market.
Global Chemical Deflasher Market Dynamics
Chemical deflashers are regarded as better alternative as compared to conventional methods such as mechanical deflashing such as blasting or the use of abrasives for the removal of flash from plastic or rubber components. A number of speciality chemicals are being manufactured for the chemical deflashing of materials. The use of abrasives or thermal spray method usually affects the finish of the base material. Therefore, chemical methods are increasingly being preferred for high precision components or parts.
Additionally, the use of chemical deflashing, has reduced the overall operational cost for the system and has also reduced the time and also preserves the surface finish of the material, therefore is anticipated to expand significantly over the forecast period.
One of the major restraint affecting the growth of the global chemical deflasher market is the use of alternative methods such as ultrasonic vibration deflashing. The ultrasonic deflashing method is increasingly being used for plastic bodies. This method is preferred as it doesn’t affect the surface finish of the material and is also a cost effective alternative.
One of the recent trend observed in the global chemical deflasher market is the increasing popularity of the cryogenic method for deflashing of rubber and plastics both. The method uses liquid nitrogen as freezing medium in which the excess rubber or plastic etc. becomes brittle and can be easily removed. The major advantage of using this method of deflashing is that it can be used both for rubber and plastic material.
Global Chemical Deflasher Market Regional Outlook
The global chemical deflasher market is anticipated to be dominated by Asia Pacific region. This is attributed to the large base for the moulding of plastics and other metallic bodies for use across major sectors such as automotive etc. North America and Europe are also anticipated to hold significant share in the global chemical deflasher market and are anticipated to expand at a moderate CAGR over the forecast period. Regions such as Middle East and Africa (MEA) and Latin America are regarded as low volume high growth regions, therefore are projected to grow at relatively higher CAGR. Japan is anticipated to show relatively sluggish growth over the forecast period.
