Cold pressing

When cold pressing a product a defined amount of material is placed inside a mould. This mould closes with a relatively low pressure (3 to 20 MPa) which makes the material flow trough the cavities of the mold. It is possible to heat the mould to influence the process, however when temperature rises above 100 degrees C we should talk about hot pressing

Examples of cold pressing can be found in the fabrication of boat parts or swimming pools.
