SwivelSkim Jr.

This RFQ was sourced on www.MFG.com in USA for Structural Foam

Production of a foam made part. Approximately 18" x 12" x 3". Please check the attached drawing for details. The buyer is currently manufacturing the product by plastic injection mold. Buyer is looking to make a Jr model, one that will not require flotation (buoys) on the center axle as seen on the larger model. To do this Buyer hopes to use a buoyant material that will stay afloat when being pushed out on the surface of a pool with an attached pole. Buyer is seeking to manufacture the frame in a stiff foam material, possibly similar to what a swimmers kick-board is made. Closed Cell Foam, Polyethylene or PVC foam seem to work best in the marine industries. The material used, needs to be impervious to mold and mildew and not affected by UV weather and chlorinated water. Material should also be stiff, hold its form, light weight would be a plus. Please quote for tool/set-up and manufacturing cost with qty price breaks of 1000 and 2500. First order most likely will be 250-500 for marketing samples. A PDF with dimensions is attached with min and max wall thickness, 1/2" will most likely be used depending on material strength and its flotation.

Structural Foam: Structural Foam is a term commonly used to describe thermoplastic injection molding components with a honeycomb, cellular core, in which the outer surface is denser than the inner layers. The combination results in a molded part with a high stiffness ratio compared with non-structural foam (compact) moldings.
