Base Materials launches new tooling material

Base Materials strengthens its long-standing commitment to investing in research and development to meet the needs of its customers with the launch of Ares 770, a new cost-competitive novel tooling material.

The new proprietary resign system, which is made from syntactic materials, is designed for the manufacture of master models and patterns used in the production of carbon fibre parts, and for vacuum forming and thermoforming applications.

Suitable for use across a range of industries including automotive and aerospace, the new Ares 770 novel tooling material is suitable for use at temperatures up to +130ËšC and boasts a fine surface structure, low coefficient of thermal expansion, excellent dimensional stability, and an inert surface for wide-ranging compatibility.  

John Miller, managing director of Base Materials, said: “The launch of Ares 770 represents a substantial investment in, and commitment to, leveraging our industry-leading research and development capabilities to enhance innovation and support our customers, particularly those in the UK, in these challenging times.

“From automotive to aerospace and beyond, Ares 770 is a cost-competitive novel material that can help our customers to protect their margins without compromising performance.”

Base Materials’ Ares 770 novel material, which is manufactured in-house, is available in a selection of board thicknesses up to 200mm. Base Materials also produces ancillary products including adhesives, sealers, and release agents.

Thermoplastic coatings and composites

Generally, composites, such as glass fibre and carbon fibre, are popular materials among manufacturers because of their light weight and mechanical properties compared to traditional materials, such as steel and aluminium. Composites can also be designed to take advantage of special coatings that help aid their integration into a product while improving functionality. Patrick Loock, segment business owner for products and applications at composite tubes and profiles manufacturer Exel Composites, discusses how composites manufactured with thermoplastic functional coatings can allow more control of properties such as friction, adhesion, and finish.
