For hundreds of years, gypsum cements have been instrumental in the manufacture of industrial tooling. Georgia-Pacific constantly develops innovative ways to expand the use of gypsum – and its effectiveness – for essential tooling applications. Our high-quality industrial tooling plasters have been widely used in the aircraft and automotive industries. It is vital to the ceramic and foundry industries as well. Likewise, these products play an important role in the manufacture of plastics and other related industries.For more information, contact us today at 1-800-695-6367, or find a sales contact in your area.
Uniform texture and densities ensure that our tooling plasters adhere to the exacting specifications demanded by leading manufacturers. Industrial tooling plaster products attain and hold close tolerances, with expansion controlled to 0.0003 in./in. Stability is also critical. Our products will not warp or shrink under normal temperature and humidity ranges. Their excellent adaptability makes tooling plasters ideal for the most intricate and complex designs. In addition, our product provides a surprising cost effectiveness. Gypsum cements require just one-third to one-half the time of standard tooling techniques.
Produced from some of the world's purest gypsum, Georgia-Pacific industrial gypsum is manufactured from exceptional raw materials, up to 99%+ pure, in carefully controlled conditions. Chances are one of our industrial plaster products features the exact formulation that meets your requirements. If not, we will gladly customize a special formulation based on your specifications.
Three main techniques are commonly employed when gypsum cements are used in industrial tooling: pouring, screeding and splash casting. The adaptability of Densite® and Denscal® gypsum cements make them well suited to these methods, which are explained below:
