Two-Part Epoxy Infusion Resin produces composite molds.

Press Release Summary:




Toolfusion® 3 is low-viscosity resin formulated to produce pre-preg quality composite molds, with void contents of less than 1% achievable. Initial cure temperature is 120°F and resin can be post cured to achieve glass transition temperature of 425°F. It will work in various RTM and VARTM processes including single and double bag arrangements to produce autoclave quality laminates, which have vacuum integrity for vacuum bag processing of parts in oven and autoclave.

Huntington Beach, CA - Toolfusion® 3 is a two part low viscosity epoxy infusion resin formulated to produce pre-preg quality, composite molds. Toolfusion® 3 has a low initial cure temperature of 120°F (49°C) and can be post cured to achieve a high glass transition temperature of 425°F (218°C). Void contents of less than 1% are achievable. Toolfusion® 3 will work in various RTM and VARTM processes including single and double bag arrangements to produce autoclave quality laminates.

Benefits include:

o Resin infusion process delivers very high quality laminates with low manufacturing costs, no refrigeration costs, no autoclave running costs.

o Low initial cure temperature for low thermal expansion effect during curing and ability to use low cost master model materials.

o Nano technology delivers outstanding toughness & high Tg. (218ºC) for long tool life and reduced life cycle cost.

o Low viscosity allows infusion of thicker and more complex laminates with fewer resin feed lines.

o In comparison to metallic tools, Toolfusion® composite tools are lighter weight for easier manual handing.

o In comparison to metallic tooling, Toolfusion® composite tools have faster heat up and cool down rates for reduced production costs.

o Toolfusion® 3 composite tooling laminates have vacuum integrity for vacuum bag processing of parts in oven and autoclave.
