Epoxy & Polyurethane Liquid Systems

Best results guaranteed.

Gelcoats

With their excellent mechanical and chemical properties, RAKU® TOOL gelcoats ensure a whole host of premium surface qualities.

A wide range of surface properties (rigid to flexible and abrasion resistant to polishable) can be obtained by applying just a thin layer.

The two-component epoxy systems and the polyurea system are available with both long and short pot lives and also with different degrees of temperature resistance.

RAKU® TOOL gelcoats are easy to apply and process.

Coupling coat

The RAKU® TOOL coupling coat is a prefabricated two-component epoxy system. It ensures a good adhesion of the gelcoat to the backing and is applied with a brush in a thin, uniform layer.

Depending on the operating conditions, the backing can be made from casting resin, tamping, fiber laminate or laminating paste.

Coupling coats are used to make tools, molds, parts, and auxiliaries.

The prefabricated RAKU® TOOL coupling coat makes work easier and is sure to impress with its excellent heat resistance, outstanding interlayer adhesion, and uniform consistency (e.g. thixotropic properties).

Casting resins

The RAKU® TOOL range of casting resins for both full and face casting includes epoxy, polyurethane, and polyurea systems.

These systems are available with varying degrees of temperature resistance and different pot lives. The latter can be adapted in some cases based on the hardener selected.

The resins have a number of impressive features, including good processing and venting properties, excellent resistance to chemicals, high resistance to abrasion, and a hard surface.

RAKU® TOOL casting resins are used for modeling in general and to make items such as foundry patterns and copy models, jigs and fixtures, and working models for the ceramics industry.

Full casting - the benefits: quick and easy work process, with no need for a gelcoat. It is suitable for smaller as well as larger castings.

Face casting – the benefits: a smaller amount of casting material is required, superior dimensional stability of the casting due to lower shrinkage, and special surface properties can be achieved (from flexible to hard). Face casting is suitable for large castings.
