Epoxy-based tooling prepregs are designed to cure at very low temperatures and enable good dimensional accuracy even with model materials that have high thermal expansion coefficients. With over 20 years of use in the aerospace and automotive industries, CYFORM® is capable of over 200 cure cycles making it ideal for low rate product parts. It is also a perfect solution for prototype and one-off development tool designs.
CYFORM®, one of Solvay's epoxy tooling prepregs offers superior handling characteristics and exceptional molded surface quality. These materials are ideal for use as intermediates for BMI-based tooling systems.
Provides low temperature cures and inexpensive master models
Supports manufacture of large complex-geometric parts
Allows for reduction in cure cycle time
