ST-130 Sacrificial Tooling
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
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.
