ADTECH’s core competency over the past 20 years has been manufacturing products for use in industrial tooling applications. Our proven history and hands-on experience in the tooling market has allowed ADTECH to become one of the industry’s leading suppliers of epoxy tooling systems. Our product line consists of over 150 products developed solely for rigorous tooling applications such as resin transfer molding (RTM), reaction injection molding (RIM), compression molding, vacuum forming, and prototype injection molding, to name a few. From room temperature and high temperature epoxy surface coats, laminating systems, and casting systems to lowex reproduction urethanes, ADTECH’s diversity ensures that whatever your application requires, we have a product that is suitable for you.
About ADTECH Epoxy Tooling Systems
The use of ADTECH epoxy continues to gain momentum for good reasons. Epoxy is often superior in terms of durability, build speed, tool strength, dimensional stability and precision.
In most tooling applications with sound construction techniques, an epoxy tool can be infinitely more durable and dimensionally stable than other tool building materials. You can reasonably expect to build the tool 50-60% faster. Epoxy has a much higher strength to weight ratio and consequently results in a laminate that is lighter, stiffer and faster to build.
ADTECH's careful comparison of the coefficient of thermal expansion in epoxy vs. polyester has shown significantly increased stability when building with epoxy. Additionally, when comparing the linear shrinkage, this very versatile material comes much closer to duplicating the exact dimensions of the original pattern. The relative dramatically shrinkage is eliminated, thereby increasing precision when creating a master model.
