Tool-Free Engineered Composite Thermoforming Technology

Tooless Engineered Composite (TEC) is a patent-pending process that incorporates the benefits of a thermoformed plastic composite product and the strength of fiberglass reinforcement. This tool-free process utilizes the thermoformed shell as the tool surface in a closed mold process. The result is an extremely durable product with superior finish quality. The product has low to no emissions and uses soy and corn resin. The TEC process utilizes a multi-layer thermoformed shell producing products with a class “A” finish. Utilizing a multi-layer thermoformed shell eliminates painting, which reduces cost and produces low or no emissions. This multi-layer shell has a layer of acrylic that may be sanded and buffed if needed. The thermoformed shell allows for the use of various materials, finishes, colors, textures, and decorative patterns that may be utilized in different applications.
