Stuttgart International Mold Technology Exhibition 2019: New plates made from interior fittings and composites

Innovative materials for interior parts and composites: The RAMPF tool solution will showcase its flame-retardant polyurethane sheet RAKU TOOL FP-0590 and its epoxy board RAKU at the 2019 Mold Expo in Stuttgart, Germany from May 21st to 25th. TOOL WB-0890 – Hall 5, Booth No. 5C30.

RAKU TOOL FP-0590 – Flame Retardant Polyurethane Board

The flame retardant properties of RAKU TOOL FP-0590 make it particularly suitable for the manufacture of interior decorative parts, panels, ceiling elements, decorative elements, furniture and exhibition furniture. Flame retardancy is a property that limits, slows or prevents the spread of fire and is particularly important in public transportation. This makes the new polyurethane sheet suitable for use in the shipbuilding, aerospace and railway sectors, especially for the European fire rating C-s2, d0, EN 13501-1 and so on.

Other advantages of RAKU TOOL FP-0590:

Low density (comparable to maple and larch wood)
Whether it is manual or milling, it can be easily machined and can be drilled directly
Good edge strength
High dimensional stability (due to its low coefficient of thermal expansion)
Fine, uniform surface structure (no fiber structure)
Easy to paint (use all standard paint systems)
Impervious and moisture
RAKU TOOL WB-0890 – Epoxy board for composite manufacturing

RAMPF Tooling Solutions has further expanded its portfolio of composites products with its new epoxy board RAKU TOOL WB-0890. The board has an extremely fine surface structure which significantly reduces the amount of finishing and the amount of sealant that must be used.

In addition, the surface finish can be transferred from the main mold to the prepreg mold, so there is no need to re-grind the mold and the life of the prepreg mold is significantly increased.

RAKU TOOL WB-0890 is easy to process and is compatible with all industry standard coatings, release agents and epoxy prepregs. The glass transition temperature Tg was 110 °C.
