Quality backup support components, such as structural tubes and angles, are an important part of building checking fixtures, vacuum forming dies or other similar tooling.
All structural shapes are made of 7500 fiberglass or carbon fiber fabric They all contain multiple layers that have been impregnated with epoxy resins and are molded and compressed in a closed die for flatness and squareness.
Both room temperature and high temperature materials are available.
