Injection moulding involves pouring heated granules of thermoplastic (in a full liquid form) into a pre-made mould. The mould will made into the desired product shape. In addition, will contain all the correct bends and cavities for the liquid plastic to be poured into. Once the mould is full of the melted plastic, it is then left to cool until it solidifies.
