Aliancys AG (Schaffhausen, Switzerland) has introduced its new Neomould 2017-S-1 resin for manufacturing composite tooling. Aliancys says the thixotropic nature of the resin allows for excellent application on vertical surfaces without sagging. Neomould 2017-S-1 also is said to offer near-zero shrinkage, which enables good dimensional accuracy.
