The recent discovery of use of counterfeit polyamide resin in a key component molded in China for Aston Martin sports cars may be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to such practices but it's not the case that all processors in China can't be trusted. There are honest molders out there going to extraordinary lengths to ensure their operations are completely above-board.
One such company is Chang'an Casting. Freeman Feng, general manager of marketing, recounted his experiences to PlasticsToday recently. "In the past, we occasionally sourced plastic material from the local market only to discover later that it was fake when we trialled the tool."
