Material selection guide can help determine if Precision Board HDU is right for a project.

Coastal Enterprises (Orange, CA, US) rolled out on April 18 the Material Selection Guide as a guideline for choosing the best density for a job. Examples of how the guide can help are scenarios such as picking the right density of Precision Board high-density urethane for an application or determining if a low-temp (continuous to 200°F) or high-temp (continuous to 300°F) is needed.  

The information in the chart represents PBLT and PBHT densities ranging from 4 pcf to 75 pcf used in a variety of applications, including signage, sculpture, theme parks, tooling, prototypes, and autoclave tools.

The tool can be viewed here. 




  • Tooling

    Composite parts are formed in molds, also known as tools. Tools can be made from virtually any material. The material type, shape and complexity depend upon the part and length of production run. Here's a short summary of the issues involved in electing and making tools.

  • Quasi-isotropic, symmetrical fabric for tooling

    Well-known in structural applications, this symmetric, balanced and quasi-isotropic fabric offers savings and opens opportunities in composites tooling.

  • Aircraft composites repair moves toward maturity

    New technologies seek to address the challenges MROs will increasingly face in the age of commercial airliners with composite airframes.
