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 ºF (49 ºC) and can be post cured to achieve a high glass transition temperature of 425 ºF (218 ºC). 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.
> Resin infusion process delivers very high quality laminates with low manufacturing costs, no refrigeration costs, no autoclave running costs.
> Low initial cure temperature for low thermal expansion effect during curing and ability to use low cost master model materials.
> Nano technology delivers outstanding toughness & high Tg. (425 ºF or 218 ºC) for long tool life and reduced life cycle cost.
> Low viscosity allows infusion of thicker and more complex laminates with fewer resin feed lines.
> In comparison to metallic tools, Toolfusion® 3 composite tools are lighter weight for easier manual handing.
> In comparison to metallic tooling, Toolfusion® 3 composite tools have faster heat up and cool down rates for reduced production costs.
> Toolfusion® 3 composite tooling laminates have vacuum integrity for vacuum bag processing of parts in oven and autoclave.
