METAPOR®BF100AL

Air-permeable aluminium composite

METAPOR®BF100AL is a composite material made of aluminum granules and epoxy resin. The material is air-permeable over the entire surface due to its micro-porous structure allowing for unique design considerations for prototype and production thermoform tools. In contrast to sintered materials, the pores do not close off after machining allowing excellent definition and surface quality.

Applications

  • Rapid prototyping
  • Thermoforming (e.g. PS, ABS, PVC, PET, PE)
  • Vacuum clamping
  • Air cushion devices

Benefits

  • Consistent porosity over the entire surface
  • No need to drill vacuum or venting holes
  • Reduces mould manufacturing costs
  • Accelerates parts prototyping
