Compression molding is a high-volume, high-pressure process that molds complex, high-strength fiberglass reinforcements. A huge advantage of compression molding is its ability to mold large, fairly intricate parts, such as for your car. Auto components, appliance housings, furniture, electrical components, business machine housings, aircraft, consumer electronics and even satellites can all use compression molding in their assembly.
