Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation has launched its high temperature, low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) tooling material, as part of an agreement with CFP Composites to make TD1200 tooling available in Europe. Trelleborg is a leader in engineered polymer solutions that seal, damp, and protect critical applications in various environments.

The new material has an operating temperature of up to +180 OC, providing customers across Europe with a wider material choice from Trelleborg. Trelleborg’s TD1200 tooling material offers direct to part manufacturing as an alternative to aluminium, prepreg, and steel for high volume part production. Boards can be built into blocks and machined to a specified shape using traditional cutting tools. Trelleborg TD1200 has an operating temperature of +180 oC and is easily processed to achieve either a matt or high gloss finish, with minimal sealing required, according to a media statement by the company.

“We are very pleased to launch TD1200, this high temperature tooling material fits perfectly alongside our existing range of tooling solutions, giving customers an alternative to aluminium, prepreg, and steel for direct to multiple-part manufacturing. Our wide range of solutions ensures we can meet individual application requirements,” Kerry Lyons, business development manager for Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation in Rochdale, England said.

“CFP are immensely proud to announce its strategic partnership with Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation. We look forward to working closely with the team to provide TD1200 on short lead times, making it the perfect choice for thermally stable high-volume part production in the aerospace, automotive, and other industries,” Simon Price, managing director of CFP Composites said.
