SikaBlock and Biresin Our Product Groups

Block materials and Model pastes The suitable system for any application. n Model and Tooling boards n Suitable Adhesive and Filler systems n Model and mould making pastes A wide range of application-oriented system solutions consisting of special SikaBlock board materials and the associated Biresin Adhesives and Fillers can be used for many applications in the construction of master-, design, styling and cubing models as well as for diverse moulds, foundry patterns and other manufacturing tools. Biresin Model pastes are tailor-made products for making joint-free design, styling and cubing models and diverse moulds in high quality.

Vacuum Casting resins and RIM-systems Complicated mouldings quickly made. n Vacuum Casting systems n Low pressure RIM-systems For classic rapid prototyping our Biresin Vacuum Casting systems based on polyurethane are suitable. They are simulating the majority of characteristics of the thermoplastic series materials. The same applies for the product group of the Biresin Low pressure RIMsystems, which are processed with the help of 2-component-mixing and metering machines. Because of very short demoulding times the LP-RIM-casting is suitable above all for serial production.

Composite and laminating systems Together they are strong. n High Performance Composite systems n Gelcoats n Laminating and Multipurpose resins Biresin Composite resins are specially designed for the production of high performance composites also giving good wetting of difficult carbon fibres, variable viscosity for different production processes and application temperature ranges from 80 to 170C. Excellent processing and good resistance to external influences are the deciding features of Biresin gelcoats. The Biresin Laminating systems can be used in different stages of manufacture in the construction of models, negatives, moulds and tools.

SikaBlock Model and Tooling boards


Whether design or data control model, whether gauge or core box SikaBlock board materials are the optimum products for all applications. There are 13 different board types with densities of 0.08 to 1.2 kg/dm2. They are available in different dimensions and thicknesses of up to 2000 x 1000 x 600 mm. In accordance with requirements, the materials also differ in respect of their structure, as well as their mechanical and thermal characteristics. Numerous quality checks help to monitor compliance with these standards. For us, certification to DIN EN ISO 9001 is a natural expression of our attitude towards quality.

When it comes to development and product updates, we place special value on the following characteristics: n Physiological harmlessness n Easy to work material with little wear on tools n Low levels of dust and smell n Very small tension levels and therefore low deformation n Low coefficient of thermal expansion and therefore dimensionally stable n Homogeneous structure and dense surface quality n Sufficient strength and heat resistance

Biresin Model and mould making pastes


The manufacture of high-quality, completely joint-free design, styling and cubing models as well as moulds is the domain of Biresin Model pastes. They are mainly processed on 2-component mixing and metering machines. The cured resin systems are easy to finish to their correct dimensions by mechanical means. The results are joint-free, smooth surfaces with a high level of precision which can then be covered with layers of paint.

Biresin Gelcoats and Laminating systems


n Gelcoats Biresin Gelcoats are very easy to apply and specially formulated. In accordance with their particular application, they have the necessary resistance to external influences such as mechanical, thermal or chemical stress. In other cases, the fact that they are easy to work and colour plays an important role. The gelcoats are used in the construction of models, moulds and tools as well as in composite applications.

n Laminating and Multipurpose resins Biresin Laminating and Multipurpose resins offer very good wetting behaviour of reinforcing fibres and fillers. The results are high-grade laminates with excellent strength. Their low viscosity allows bonding of large amounts of grainy filling materials for backfill stamping. They are also used for coupling layers. Biresin Laminating pastes enable time-saving manufacture of reinforcing layers. Here, layers several centimetres thick can be built up in a single stage of work.

Biresin Fastcast resins


n Biresin Fastcast resins Biresin Fastcast resins offer high flowability, a quick curing and this result in quick demoulding. They are easily workable. The wide range of products is characterised by filled and unfilled systems.

n Filled Biresin Fastcast resins Filled Biresin Fastcast resins are especially suitable for making e.g. master and core models and negatives with large dimensions and are characterized by low shrinkage.

n Unfilled Biresin Fastcast resins The unfilled Biresin Fastcast resins are usually used for making detailed models and mouldings with thin walls due to their excellent flowability. They can, however, be casted for thicker layers by adding filling materials to them.

Biresin EP- and PUR-Casting systems


The large range of Biresin Casting resins based on epoxy and polyurethane can be used in many different ways. The resin systems are highly resistant to mechanical or thermal influences. The system selected depends on the casting procedure in question, e.g. mass casting, backfill or facecasting.

n EP-Casting resins In accordance with their particular application, the Biresin EP-Casting resins have a good resistance to chemical stress and / or abrasion. Therefore they are suitable for the quick and inexpensive manufacture of production equipment such as foam-, RIM- and vacuumforming moulds as well as foundry patterns and metal sheet forming tools.

n Heat-resistant Casting resins The heat-resistant Biresin Casting resins belong to an independent product group. According to the product and application the necessary heat resistance is obtained by post treatment or by thermal running. Possible applications are vacuumforming moulds, injection moulds or other production equipment for higher temperatures.

n PUR- and Backfill-Casting systems Biresin PUR- and Backfill-Casting Systems are suitable above all for inexpensive solutions for production equipment by mass casting or backfill casting. For very light backfilling EP foam Biresin VP680 can be applied.
