Together with the Fachhochschule Münster – University of Applied Sciences we are working on ALWA PERM (patent No. 2583995). This is a metal-filled casting resin for producing a porous, resin-bound mould. These materials are applicable in the areas of thermoforming, the ceramic industry, intake moulds and devices, pneumatic cushioning, the filter industry, etc.
ALWA PERM allows a castable production of porous metallic materials with a binder for the first time. The system offers a highly accurate mould surface reproduction. The profile characteristics goes far beyond the current state of the art.
