Longer lasting than epoxy materials, and lighter and more cost effective than Invar tooling, 360 is the ultimate composite tooling solution.

360 combines the precision benefits of an exceptionally low CTE (5.4) and a temperature resistance of 300˚C in a single directly millable tooling material.

Materials are available with thicknesses from 5-20mm and in sizes up to 1.0 x 1.4 m. 360 is lightweight, easy to machine, bond and block-up to produce large net surface areas.

Suitable for high precision direct-to-part tooling, assembly fixtures, jigs or backing structures. The materials can be used either in or out of autoclave.

Available in large volumes on very short (7 day) lead-times.
