Tooling resins for strong tools and great shapes
Throughout the composites industry production molds made from glass fiber reinforced composites are widely used for Vacuum Infusion, Hand lay-up, Spray-up, Cold Press, RTM and Cold Casting applications. When compared to equivalent metal tooling, the advantages of composite molds include:
- relatively low cost;
- ease of repair or modification;
- ease of manufacturing process (even in big sizes up to 80+ m).
At the same time, composite tools have a shorter production life and have strength limitations in pressurized molding applications.
The right tooling resin
AOC is selling a wide range of Neomould tooling resins for creating composite molds. Through their zero-shrinkage feature these resins ensure the mold has a smooth surface, while the texture and part dimensions perfectly match the original plug model. At the same time, the tooling resins of AOC allow the creation of strong and durable molds, and ensure consistent part dimensions and a long production life.
