Overmolding is a process very similar to insert molding except it involves plastic over plastic instead of plastic over metal. Overmolding involves it's own set of issues to obtain the proper shutoff's that plastic (as opposed to metal) presents. Ironwood Plastics has been in the overmolding business for many years and has a great deal of experience in overmolding dissimilar materials. In several cases, thermoplastic rubbers have been overmolded to give "soft touch" or other desired mechanical properties.
