ECO PERFORMANCE RESINS

Super Sap 1000
An all purpose, high strength epoxy similar to ABS for prototype castings. Super Sap™ formulations contain bio-renewable materials sourced as co-products or from waste streams of other industrial processes, such as wood pulp and bio-fuels production. These natural components have excellent elongation properties.

SUPER SAP™ CLR System is a UV stabilized, fiber-reinforced composite epoxy system, suitable for use where low color and clarity are desired. These natural components have excellent elongation properties.

REPLACING PETROCHEMICALS WITH A SHARED BIO-MASS STREAM
Forecast 3D has partnered with Entropy Resins whose goal is to create high performance resins that optimize the sustainability of our customers' end products while improving performance. They have replaced petroleum based chemicals with bio-based renewable feedstocks. This has enabled them to lower the resins environmental impact from processing by employing bio-derived materials such as pine oils sourced as co-products from wood pulp processing and vegetable oil components sourced from the waste stream of bio-fuel processing.

COMPOSITE CAST MATERIALS

Composite Cast 04-CF (Composite Casting Material)
In 2008 we added a specially formulated phenolic resin to our ProCast RTV lineup that allows us to create parts that can used in high temperature and other demanding applications. These high performance resins have milled glass fibers added and allows product testing in extreme environments along with substantial weight savings and rapid turnaround times. This has allowed for many traditional applications that have used cast metal parts to be converted to this process with significant cost and time savings. The most common application thus far has been the conversion of automotive intake manifolds but include Industrial, Aerospace and Defense industries as well. Contact us to discuss how we can make this work for your application.

UABS AF (Advanced Formula glass filled urethane.)
With the addition of milled glass fibers into our very popular UABS 85 material, we create a composite urethane with high performance characteristics not normally found in thermoset plastics. In situations where greater part stiffness is required, by the addition of these reinforcing fibers, UABS-AF can produce castings that have improved stiffness and excellent impact resistance along with a very high Flexural Modulus.
