Metrology
PLASTIFORM®
PLASTIFORM® compounds are used to create high precision impressions.
Specially developed for industrial applications, they offer alternative and innovative solutions for metrololgy controls, quality controls and a whole host of other applications.

PRECISE : No dimensional shrinkage, micron accuracy
SIMPLE : With our mixing system Gun + Cartridge
FAST : Results in minutes
ECONOMICAL : Avoid expensive processes (destructive controls, dismantling, purchase of complex instruments...).

Dimensional Control
Take an impression of your parts to control any kind of form

PLASTIFORM® products are now a benchmark in the most demanding fields : AERONAUTIC, AEROSPACE, DEFENSE, AUTOMOTIVE, FORMULA 1, WATCH INDUSTRY, COSMETIC, ENERGY, PRECISION ENGINEERING, MEDICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRIES...

With some of the PLASTIFORM® products, it is now possible to easily inspect and measure internal complex features (thread, thread root, groove, radius…), by creating an internal complete impression.
It is recommended to choose a PLASTIFORM® combining the following characteristics :
  - A Fluid initial consistency : These self-placing compounds will completely fill the internal form of the part, even the finest details.
  - A Flexible or Semi-Flexible final hardness : The impression can be misshaped to be easily removed from the mould.
PLASTIFORM® has developed less liquid products, more suitable for taking a sectorial replica cast  of external complex forms (T-slots, grooves, notches...).
It is recommended to choose a PLASTIFORM® combining the following characteristics :
 - A Pasty or Putty initial consistency : They do not flow, and can be applied easily on vertical or overhead surfaces.
 - A Flexible or Semi-flexible final hardness : The replica can be misshaped to be easily removed from the mould.




Thanks to the PLASTIFORM® Twin Blade Cutter, it is possible to create a cross section of  the impression to control the features.
Some rigid products in the PLASTIFORM® range can be used for Indirect Roughness Control Ra.
When the surface Ra is ≥ 0,4 µm, the roughness can be measured directly on the cast using a surface meter, and the result is faithful to the original.
For a lower roughness, other inspection methods can be used, including laser metrology and interferometry.



Impossible to reach features are no longer a problem, thanks to PLASTIFORM® impressions.
Surface preparation
DN1 SURFACE CLEANER

The DN1 is a powerful surface cleaner and degreaser of the KRISTAL brand. It must be used before every impression to eliminate oils and greases on the surface.
It evaporates quickly, leaving a clean and residue-free surface.
The 3S Release Agent is a siliconebased lubricant by KRISTAL.
It must be applied on a clean and dry surface before making an impression with a Resin product of the PLASTIFORM® range.
Resin impressions are very rigid, they need the 3S to be removed easily from their moulds.
