Our Products

Aquapour

AquaPour is a fluid slurry that is castable; hence, it is capable of forming complex shapes. It comes as a dry powder and water is added to activate it. It is most commonly utilized in applications where a mold is filled with the material in the liquid state, and upon setting in the green state.

Clavecore

ClaveCore is a patented self-pressurizing tooling material. It is rigid at room temperature, but becomes an expanding semi-liquid at high temperature. It is designed for out of autoclave applications that are OML driven. Its pressurization behavior can be engineered via composition to control the pressure onset temperature and magnitude of pressure.

Aquafill

Aquafill™ has been formulated to patch the water-soluble mandrel materials Aquapour™, Aquacore™, and Aquacore™ Premium. Aquafill™ is premixed and ready to use. Once the mandrel has been formed and dried in a convection oven, it can be applied easily with a rubber squeegee such as those used in auto body applications.
