Industry Focus: Aerospace

As an aerospace manufacturing professional who specs or procures advanced materials, you work to stay current on the latest innovations and proven performers. For more than 50 years, we have supplied aerospace and defense manufacturers with built-to-print flexible polyurethane products, tooling boards, and aerospace-grade rigid foam core materials for aircraft flight decks and interior cabins.

  • General Plastics’ open-cell flexible polyurethane foams deliver efficiency while absorbing energy at a consistent, controlled rate. They are available as sheets, blocks and in a molded parts program.
  • Our tough, grain-free LAST-A-FOAM® composite core foams machine beautifully and cut crisply, and retain their strength, dimensional stability and chemical properties for years to come. 
  • Ideal for models, master plugs and molds, our high-performance FR-4700 HT Tooling Board Series handles prepreg composite layup tooling for high-temperature applications up to 400º F. 

At General Plastics, you’ll also find exceptional quality, technical expertise and genuinely helpful service to meet your most exacting requirements. Give us a call if you need assistance with product selection, a specific application, or even a custom sample.

FR-4700 High-Temperature Tooling Board Series

If you're looking for better alternatives to your current tooling material, take a hard look at high-density polyurethane LAST-A-FOAM® FR-4700. Our wide range of high-density foam formulations satisfies diverse manufacturing needs – from low-temperature layup to high-temperature autoclave (400°F) applications.

Uniform, grain-free and highly machinable, LAST-A-FOAM tooling boards are ideal for master models, check fixtures, rapid prototypes, mold and foundry patterns, master-plugs, and composite tooling.

Enjoy working with exceptionally consistent rigid tooling material that bonds securely and easily using a variety of adhesive systems. Our boards allow you to create monolithic tools and molds for large-scale projects, while also reducing your metallic tooling costs.

Our team has the expertise and capabilities to fulfill your tooling and mold applications. We can supply you with specified tooling foam material, or create prototypes and CNC-machined molds from your designs and specifications.
