Composite materials offer a cost effective way for anyone to make even large production runs of identical plastic parts in molds they can produce themselves. This brochure will describe the steps necessary to create accurate high-quality low-distortion molds for producing
Composite materials (composites) are made when two or more materials with different properties are combined to produce a new material. The physical and chemical properties of each of the constituent materials remain distinct in the new material. These constituent materials work synergistically to produce a composite material that has improved properties when compared with the individual
A composite material is any material made by combining two or more materials in a structure whereby materials remain separate. This is done to produce materials with desirable properties such as high compressive strength tensile strength flexibility and hardness.
Composite materials offer a cost effective way for anyone to make even large production runs of identical parts in molds they can produce themselves. Of all the advantages offered by composite materials their ability to be molded to complex shapes is perhaps the most popular.

The right composites also stand up well to heat and corrosion. This makes them ideal for use in products that are exposed to extreme environments such as boats chemical-handling equipment and spacecraft. In general composite materials are very durable. Another advantage of composite materials is that they provide design flexibility.
Composite fabrication processes typically involve some form of molding to shape the resin and reinforcement. A mold tool is required to give the unformed resin/fiber combination its shape prior to and during cure. Click on “Tooling” for an overview of mold types as well as materials and methods used to make mold tools.
A composite material is a structural material that is formed by combining two or more different substances like metals alloys glass ceramics and polymers. Usually the new composite materials formed have properties that are superior to those of the original components.
