Guess the "Plastic mold"

7 posts in this topic

Today I received via e-mail some interesting photos with a method of plastic mold lurebuilding , in fact it ain't a mold it is some kind of japanese ( I guess ) bicomponent thing looking like an epoxy mix , but thinner, since I never saw this kind of mixture I wonder if some TU members can recognize it :

My first thoughts are filler such as alumilites featherlite & 2 part urethane resin, pretty standard stuff...or are you talking about the mold? :huh:

Since I don't know what is Alumilite ( I'll google it ):o the next question : Is it an expensive method (I'll have to stick to wood if it is) ? What was interesting for me is that with this method you don't need a pressure pot...what do you know about the hardness of this material? Kind of noob in this domain :teef:

oh, and I forgot the most important fact ... density comparative to balsa? ;)

It's not too expensive, you can get little kits on their site for cheap.

No pressure pot, just mix and pour, Husky is the one with the most experience with this, I think, with Coley being way up there as well.

Not sure of the hardness, there are different additives that can be added to this stuff, to make it do different things :)
