The Tool & Gage House | Gaging Products Facsimile Compound

MAKES ACCURATE HARD PLASTIC REPRODUCTION IN 6 TO 8 MINUTES

Facsimile® is a special plastic compound kit which is used for duplicating surface flats, roughness and for dimensional transfer of inaccessible locations. Many other applications are listed below.

  • Make duplicates for measuring, such as gages, etc.
  • Mask, fill in and seal.
  • Test surface geometry, flatness, microfinish, etc.
  • Fretting depth of blade dovetails in jet engines.
  • Make permanent records of surface geometry, etc.
  • Make potting, bonding and repairing easy.
  • Make custom holding and nesting fixtures.
  • Make quick jigs.
  • Make instant molds and patterns.
  • Make excellent stylus patterns.
  • Closer inspection can be performed by allowing the casting to cure in a pressure vessel (15 p.s.i.).
  • When casting in a “CONFINED” area, it is better to cast 1 /2 of the internal shape.
  • Facsimile® will not affect the surface of ferrous or non-ferrous materials to which it is applied.
  • Remember—when casting without releasing agent, an ACETONE soak removes Facsimile®.
  • Cast small run parts and prototypes.

AVAILABLE IN LARGER “ECONOMY” KITS
