Only from Composites One, Solvay's DForm® technology is a labor and cost-saving tooling prepreg that combines the conformability of a short fiber molding compound with the directional characteristics of a high performance, long fiber composite. This webinar presented by Composites One and Solvay will expand on the benefits of Solvay DForm® as well as discuss Solvay’s complete tooling solution – including tooling and process materials like bagging film. Composites One is the exclusive authorized distributor for Solvay Tooling materials.

Primary Topics:

  • DForm® advantages over standard long fiber woven fabric prepreg, and random short fiber and infusion tooling systems.
  • Solvay's Epoxy and BMI based tooling materials, including their handling characteristics and molded surface quality, both being superior.
  • Overview of Solvay's  innovative process materials, including vacuum bagging consumables, infusion materials, customized kitting, and reusable vacuum systems.
