Product List


 RAKU® TOOL working boards combine the ultimate in quality with outstanding mechanical properties. The semi-finished products – prefabricated, rectangular boards – made of epoxy or polyurethane can be bonded in various shapes and sizes. RAKU® TOOL adhesives matched in hardness and color to the boards are available for bonding.

 

RAKU® TOOL working boards are produced in densities ranging from 0.69 to 1.7 g/cm3, boast excellent dimensional stability, and enable quick and easy machining. The portfolio includes two epoxy board materials, which are mainly used as lay-up tools for composites and have become an established benchmark solution in the automotive and aerospace industries.  Our experienced development engineers can quickly customize our high-performance standard products. Applications include metal forming, hammer forms, foundry patterns, molds, checking fixtures, jigs, and lay-up tools.
