The resin characteristics enable to make molds that completely mirror the surface and dimensions of the plug. The thixotropic nature of the resin allows for application on vertical surfaces without sagging. For that reason the resin is highly suitable for making thick parts in one go.

For cost-effective manufacturing of composite components in small to medium sized production series (up to 500-1000 parts per year), composite molds are broadly used across the industry. While they bring the designer the ability to create unique shapes, composite tools also enable the manufacturing of large components like wind turbine blades, boats, and façade panels for buildings.

Compared to tools manufactured in steel, the production of composite tools is fast and versatile. For these reasons composite molds have built a track record of performance already over many years.

Tool manufacturing made easier
Aliancys is now introducing the unique Neomould 2017-S-1 resin, setting new standards in composites tool manufacturing and bringing multiple benefits to the professional toolmaker. The zero-shrinkage feature of Neomould 2017-S-1 resin enables to make parts that perfectly mirror plug surface and dimensions.

At the same time the processing of the resin is fairly easy and robust. Because of the thixotropic nature of Neomould 2017-S-1 resin and high viscosity at low shear rates, the application on vertical surfaces can be done without sagging. The low viscosity at high shear rates, makes the resin easy to apply in Hand lay-up and Spray-up processes. The combination of an enhanced thixotropic profile and optimized curing characteristics, make the resin suitable for producing thick parts (up to 12 layers of glass in one go).
