Tooling & Prototyping Materials

For more than 50 years ELANTAS Europe develops and produces boards for model, mould and prototype making. As specialist in formulating epoxy & polyurethane resins in liquid and solid form our customers benefit from our know-how and long-term experience.

Our processes include:

Manual with gelcoat, casting and laminating of liquid resins - We offer a wide range of epoxy and polyurethanes for mold making including different viscosities, reactivities, harnesses and abrasion resistances. Final application areas are prototypes, master models, jigs, foundry patterns, tools for composite parts and thermoforming molds in combination with suitable gel-coats or release agents.

CNC modelling paste - CNC modelling pastes are machine applied extrudable pastes available in different densities, used for medium and large model making (car style, boats, wind mill blades).

Tooling boards and blocks : Polyurethane and epoxy based machinable blocks used for styling and master models, foundry patterns, core boxes, pilot moulds, master models as well as tools for molding pre-pregs composites.

Depending on your individual requirements we offer different search and selection functions to help you find the appropriate material. The listed products are an extract from our actual product portfolio. More products are available on request.

Do you need further information about our tooling materials? Please get in touch with us. We are looking forward to your email to engineeringmaterials.elantas.europe@remove-this.altana.remove-this-also.com.
