Wimmer Carbon Technology have been providing comprehensive solutions for the design and manufacture of fiberglass and carbon fiber parts for over 15 years. Wimmer’s latest challenge was to build the fastest and safest performance Bob Sleigh in the world. The production of these 150 km/h aerodynamic machines demands a high-tech composite structure, similar to motor racing construction, where energy absorption and stiffness are paramount.
Wimmer produced a set of high performance composite molds, using F1 CAD design technology and aerospace molding techniques. In partnership with Amber Composites, Wimmer used an HX50/EC85 carbon tooling package, allowing a low temperature cure for high accuracy molding of the composite monocoque.
EC85 Epoxy Surface Coat
EC85 has been developed to provide the best interface between Epoxy Tooling blocks and Epoxy Tooling Prepregs. Exclusively sold by Amber Composites specifically for HX42 & HX50 Epoxy Tooling Prepregs and WB0700 Epoxy Tooling Block, EC85 provides a hard high gloss surface to the tooling block allowing molds with the “Ultimate” surface finish to be produced.Download Datasheet (PDF 44.64k) »
