Graphene nanotubes for conductive tooling gelcoats: efficient and safe demolding

image

TUBALL graphene nanotubes are applied via easy-to-use TUBALL MATRIX, which is a line of anti-static masterbatches based on polymer carriers and pre-dispersed TUBALL graphene nanotubes.

For polyester and vinyal-ester resins, TUBALL MATRIX 204 should be used.

Target system

Polyester, vinyl-ester, melamine, acrylic systems

Additive carrier

Plasticizer + stabilizing agent

Triethylene glycol dimethacrylate + ammonium salt of polyolefins based derivatives

Product

Increased efficiency and safety of fiberglass molds with conductive tooling gelcoats

Fiberglass molds with conductive tooling gelcoats, in contrast to molds with traditional non-conductive tooling gelcoats, improve efficiency of composite production:

  • Improved product surface quality: less dust accumulation with less wastage and retained gloss
  • Production cycles are shorter: faster de-molding process with less force required
  • Improved work safety: decreased risk of “static shocks” during demolding, decreased risk of explosion and fire

Conductive tooling gelcoats with TUBALL MATRIX

TUBALL MATRIX 204 add conductive properties to tooling gelcoats, increasing the efficiency and safety of fiberglass molds

Other benefits provided by TUBALL nanotubes for conductive tooling gelcoats:

  • Limited impact on viscosity
  • Wide range of colors
  • Low dosage gives greater flexibility in the final formulation
