Manufacturing composite parts involves creation of a mold to form the material. For aerospace manufacturers, tooling materials require high dimensional stability and appropriate durability depending on the number of cycles. Solvay offers epoxy- and BMI-based tooling materials. Both types offer superior handling characteristics and molded surface quality, which are important in assuring accurate manufacture of composite parts.
Solvay approaches composite tooling by focusing on developing material to meet future demands. Through our focused engagement in collaborative research and development programs with government, academia and industry bodies, we are able to push the boundaries in function, cost-effectiveness, durability and robust processing. Our tooling portfolio includes:
