ST-130 Sacrificial Tooling

Tooling Material

ST-130™ is a model material for sacrificial tooling that simplifies the production of hollow composite parts

Complex tools can be 3D printed and easily dissolved after curing, eliminating secondary processes like mold making and accelerating the development and production of composite structures. Engineered and tested specifically for sacrificial tooling, ST-130 withstands the heat and pressure of autoclave curing. And it 3D prints with a permeable triangle fill pattern designed to optimize build speed, conserve material and dissolve quickly.

ST-130 Sacrificial Tooling Material Properties

Behaviour and use

COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

14.5 MPa (on edge)
27.8 MPa (upright)

GLASS TRANSITION TEMP

132 °C

HDT

108 °C

CTE

107 μm/(m·°C)

Main Uses

Create hollow composites faster and easier with temporary lay-up tools made from ST-130 material. ST-130 withstands autoclave operations and simplifies hollow composite construction by dissolving after cure, leaving only the finished part.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology

Advantages of 3D printing ST-130 Sacrificial Tooling with a Stratasys FDM Machine

Tough long-lasting parts

FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology. ST-130 Sacrificial Tooling parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

FDM systems are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce. Advanced FDM 3D Printers boast the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, delivering longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing systems, delivering high throughput, duty cycles and utilization rates.

Gain new possibilities

FDM 3D Printers streamline processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way. Industries can cut lead times and costs, products turn out better and get to market faster.
