BÜFA Conductive tooling systems
BÜFA has pushed the limits of its composite tooling system even further and has started a real revolution with a conductive gelcoat
Large tools with Class A surfaces can be taken care of in one day instead of three days. A tooling resin with hardening chemistry designed for easy processability, increased economic efficiency and high process safety, in spite of low VOC substances, significantly reduces ripples in the 1st layer of resin, and all of that can now be done at competitive prices: Those are just a few of the features with which the new composite tooling system from BÜFA Composite Systems GmbH & Co. KG, located in Rastede, wants to impress its users in the future. The real revolution in BÜFA’s new tooling package, however, is the new conductive tooling gelcoat, which can efficiently eliminate electrostatic charges, thanks to intelligently designed Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNT). That not only means easier and, above all, faster removal and less hassle when the molds are cleaned. At the same time, it also means lower scrap rates and increased component quality, due to minimized dust and dirt buildup. And occupational safety also benefits; massively.
