Tough. Durable. High strength. Low density. Low coefficient of thermal expansion. These are just a few of the impressive material properties of composite syntactics, making them the ideal choice for demanding applications.

Leveraging 30+ years of experience in materials science, Engineered Syntactic Systems (ESS) has developed a new line of epoxy toolboard for the composites industry.  These tough and machinable materials are an excellent choice for composite fabrication in pre-preg and autoclave cure, wet lay-up, vacuum infusion and other composite processes.   They may also be used for constructing forming tools, master models, fixturing and other heat resistant applications.

Extensive testing and many market requests revealed a need for a more durable toolboard that will maintain dimensional stability at higher temperatures. The new ESSTool™ products are designed for mold makers serving the aerospace, energy, automotive and related sectors.

ESS is dedicated to providing a unique customer experience. We offer a wide range of standard sizes plus custom bonding and custom-cutting services so you can reduce scrap rates and machining time.
