General Plastics to Showcase New High-Temperature Tooling Board at SAMPE

may 21 2012

General Plastics Manufacturing Company will highlight its aerospace-specific products at SAMPE “This show is a great opportunity to introduce our enhanced LAST-A-FOAM FR-4700 HT Tooling Board Series, which supports high-temperature curing pre-pregs used in composite tooling,” said General Plastics President Bruce Lind. “This tooling board is ideal for models; master plugs and molds, as well as for limited tooling runs where metal dies are cost-prohibitive.”

Beyond making molds for short-run composite tools highly affordable, the FR-4700 Series products offer superb stability and versatility. Their higher glass transition temperature and low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) make them suitable for use in vacuum-forming applications where other urethane products may soften or deform.

General Plastics’ LAST-A-FOAM FR-3700 and FR-6700 Aerospace-Grade Board Series will be featured at SAMPE as well. Both of these CFC-free, flame-retardant product lines are ideal for models and design prototypes; composite core; vacuum-form dies and mold patterns; and honeycomb edge closeout for aircraft interior sandwich panels (overhead stow bins, passenger cabin class dividers, galleys and lavatories.
