Project Description

HIGH TEMPERATURE MOULDS PROJECT

An important aspect of advanced composites manufacturing is the ability to produce moulds and patterns that are capable of withstanding high temperatures and pressures.

Osprotech has the ability and facilities to produce high end moulds from relatively complicated patterns and components.

These particular moulds for the motorsport industry were manufactured using a high temperature gelcoat and glass system which cures using an exothermic reaction.

Before any moulding could be done the existing components were painted to a high gloss finish (in house) using a high gloss and high temperature resistant paint specifically designed for pattern making. Once happy with the high gloss finish the patterns were then flanged ready for making the moulds.
