We won’t be beaten on price!

If you believe you’re buying an equivalent product cheaper elsewhere, contact us to discuss your requirements.

This high temperature sheet wax is ideally suited for a wide range of tooling and mould making applications where a material thickness difference is needed between a pattern and a mould (for example if you wanted to make a snug fitting cover for a part) or a mould and another mould (if you were creating a 'matched mould').

The wax sheet has a very precise thickness, manufactured to precise tolerances and will maintain its thickness well as it is shaped around the contours of your pattern or mould.

As a high temperature sheetwax the wax itself will not melt under typical temperatures created by the exothermic reaction of casting or laminating resins, although it will melt at temperatures in excess of 126°C allowing it to be melted away after the mould surface has cured. Where melting away is not possible, the sheetwax can be removed by scraping it from a mould or pattern's surface using a plastic scraper.

The sheet wax itself is coated with a pressure sensitive adhesive on one side which makes it easy to stick to the mould or pattern as it is laid down. To Buy Sheet Wax choose the thickness from the drop down menu above.

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?Ask our technical team a question.

A video tutorial would indeed be a good idea. I'll suggest this and we'll see if it's something we can do in the future.

Vacuum won't compress the sheet wax so there is no problem with using sheet wax in conjunction with a vacuum bagging process.
We don't have any images or videos which show the product being used in this way but it would be possible. The reason why it wouldn't be the normal choice to make a mould out of sheet wax is because component would tend to stick slightly to the sheet wax, once cured, meaning the sheet wax would be destroyed when the component it removed and so it would only be possible to use the mould once.

....Would a Stanley or craft knife be ok and is it easy to carve detail into it?



Very easy. Yes, you could certainly use a Stanley knife if craft knife. Also, carving detail into the wax using simple tools would also be very easy.

No, we would not recommend spraying or applying either Pattern-Coat Primer or Hi-Gloss to the sheet wax. The nature of sheetwax is that it is very difficult for resins to stick to meaning that when you try to sand the pattern, the resin is likely to break off and spoil the finish.

Yes, certainly it is possible to layer the sheet wax to build up the necessary thickness. The adhesive on the sheetwax means it will stick well to itself.

The adhesive can leave a slight residue on the part or pattern, It is usually very easily cleaned off with a light solvent such as our Easy-Lease Mould Cleaner.

As stated on the 'Specification' tab, the sheets are 601mm x 305mm.
