EPOXY MATERIALS & TOOLING BOARDS

World-renowned manufacturer of epoxy pattern and tooling blocks, including high temperature epoxy.

Epoxy Tooling Boards Suppliers

Base Materials provides a wide range of epoxy pattern and tooling materials designed for manufacturing high quality prepreg tools, master models and moulds.

Epoxy Features & Benefits

  • Superior dimensional stability
  • Smooth surface finish, free from porosity
  • High temperature epoxy provides a consistent level of performance up to a maximum of 205°c
  • Strong, resilient product. Easy to work with, producing accurate results
  • Extremely low co-efficient of thermal expansion
  • Available in a range of board thicknesses up to 200mm

Epoxy Materials Application

  • Patterns for all forms of carbon fibre mould production
  • Short run direct mould applications for carbon fibre prepreg
  • Vacuum forming and thermoforming
  • Jigs and fixtures with heat requirement

Epoxy Adhesives

To support our epoxy pattern and tooling materials Base produce a full range of specially formulated ancillary products that include adhesives, sealers, release agents and repair pastes.

Base Materials has many years' of experience in the development of mould and pattern tools and can assist with advice and training on using epoxy tooling board materials to achieve your project goals.
