CompositesWorld, publisher of High-Performance Composites and Composites Technology magazines, as well as the CompositesWorld Weekly e-newsletter, is working with General Plastics (Tacoma, Wash., USA) to present a new webinar titled, “High-Temperature, High-Density Epoxy-Urethane Foam: an Economical Alternative for Soft Tools and Molds.”

The webinar will be offered on April 10, 2014, 2:00 to 3:00 pm EDT. The presenter will be Mitch Johnson, Ph.D., senior technical director at General Plastics Manufacturing Co.

High­temperature, high­density epoxy­urethane foam is an economical and time­saving solution for soft small, monolithic or large­mass tools, as well as low­rate or rapid prototyping. It can be more rapidly machined, it is easily bonded and it is more economical than wood,
alloy or epoxy­based alternatives. Common applications include prototype machining, prepreg composite layup tooling, vacuum form tooling, tool proofing, pattern making and master modelmaking.

Topics covered during the webinar include soft tool properties, tool preparation, density selection and tool curing.
