ebalta Paste materials fall into three main categories including the range of extrudable seamless modelling pastes widely used for automotive models and additionally for plugs or tools in marine and wind energy markets.
In addition, ebalta offer a range of traditional paste materials that are used during the construction of foundry patterns, negatives and vacuum forming tools. These include coupling coats for adhesion between gel coat and backing structure and paste laminating systems which are an increasingly popular way of providing a strong reliable backing structure.
Especially for large design models and extensive laminating moulds, the machine-processable epoxy mould making pastes from ebalta are a guarantee for seamless and dense surfaces.
The mould making pastes are very dimensionally accurate and stable. They are very easy to apply and allow layer thicknesses of 15-35 mm in one process. The paste is available for rough cut machining in under 24 hours. The low exotherm and the easy milling processes give a perfect result for jointless models and moulds in automotive, boat building, aircraft construction or wind energy.
The glass fibre-containing epoxy two-component reinforcing pastes from ebalta offer a smooth surface and temperature-resistant properties. Typically, ebalta EP reinforcing pastes are used as reinforcement for foundry patterns and in core boxes.
ebalta laminating pastes are suitable for the lightweight construction of extensive reinforcements. The laminate paste systems contain glass fibres and other reinforcing materials, and is particularly easy to mix with the coloured hardener. The mixture is easy to apply and cures at room temperature without significant shrinkage. After curing, it has very good strength
The ebalta range of coupling pastes work as an essential bond between gel coats and backing materials. They are essential in the production of negatives, master models, jigs or foundry patterns.
They are used in the build-up process of extensive models made of gelcoat, following coupling paste and a corresponding resin rear frame. The versatile products can be used universally and are very easy to spread.
