Title: The effect of aluminium granulometry on the behaviour of filled epoxy resins for rapid tooling
Issue Date: 2002
Abstract: Aluminium filled epoxies moulds have beenused in indirect rapid tooling. These moulds, whichhave a low cost processing, are very competitive,when applied in the manufacturing of low volumeseries.The geometry and the size distribution of thealuminium particles affect significantly the powderpacking density, the resin ratio, the thermalconductivity, the curing time, the homogeneity andthe mechanical characteristics of the tool.Using three high temperature epoxy resins itwas possible to understand the resin behaviour inthe presence of the aluminium filler and formulatefilled resins with the best compromise ofmechanical, thermal and processing performance.
