Thermal polymer
This might be a little off when it comes to surface coatings, but the equipment seems to be related.

Has anyone used the TCSS MX-98
Thermal Polymer Preform Process
?

http://www.thermalpolymer.com/mx98.html

Or a similar system? Rate of deposit? Thickness of layers? Strength of spray formed object?

I'm curious if I could use such a system to replace the polyester resin that I currently use. The objects that I make do not require a lot of strength. More like prop/display type of structures.

Thanks.

Sorry, no experience with this particular system. It may be suitable for your purpose, I would contact manufacturer/supplier and discuss your application, they may be able to provide samples and or demonstration of equipment.

Hi Max

Never seen anything like that before but looking at their web site it certainly looks pretty good. I might forward that onto our composite guys.

Worth a look I'd say Smile

RE: Thermal polymer
Gordon,

Do you know of a different system similar to the TCSS MX-98 machine, that can produce a free standing object from thermoplastic?

After much googleing I can only find polymer coating systems.

Thanks.
