Tooling

AOC’s tooling resins create polyester molds with low shrinkage, easy wetting, lower tooling costs and smoother tooling surfaces. They are suited for open molding, RTM and resin infusion operations.

Modified Vinyl Ester Tooling Resins

Infusable Low Profile Tooling Resin

MoldTru® LPT-68001

MoldTru LPT-68001 is a pre-promoted non-thixotropic vinyl ester next generation low profile tooling resin. The high mechanical properties of the vinyl ester resin provide a better integrity on complex compound laminates with superior surface quality.

Applications

MoldTru LPT-68001 was developed primarily to build molds using the vacuum molding process at room temperature without post cure operations. The low viscosity of this product provides good wet out of the laminate and air removal even at high glass level content.

Benefits

Dramatic build time reduction
Faster infusion and shorter cure time.

No surface distortion
The low shrinkage of the product increases the dimensional stability of the laminate.

Master molds replication
The high HDT provides the correct cure and stability of the laminate. The low shrinkage improves the surface quality.

Low viscosity
The low viscosity helps the infusion flow faster and wets the high glass content laminate complete.

No print through
Low shrinkage and unique low profile system helps prevent glass print.

Vinyl Ester Low Profile Tooling Resin

MoldTru® LPT-68000

MoldTru LPT-68000 is a pre-promoted thixotropic vinyl ester next generation low profile tooling resin. The high performance mechanical properties of the vinyl ester resin provides a laminate of quality and integrity with superior surface quality.

Applications

The MoldTru LPT-68000 was developed primarily to build molds using the conventional open mold process (spray up or hand lay up) at a room temperature. In some cases a vacuum molding process can be used to obtain high glass content using technical fabrics. The low viscosity of this product provides good wet out of the laminate and air removal.

Benefits

Dramatic build time reduction
Faster infusion and shorter cure time.

No surface distortion
The low shrinkage of the product increases the dimensional stability of the laminate.

Master molds replication
The high HDT provides the correct cure and stability of the laminate. The low shrinkage improves the surface quality.

Viscosity
The low viscosity helps the infusion flow faster and wets the high glass content laminate complete.
