Product Description

Carbon Makers' Uni-Mould system is a universal composite mould making system ideally suited to medium to large sized composite moulds. Moulds made using Uni-Mould are fully compatible with all widely used resin systems (including epoxy, polyester and vinylester). Important Note, MEKP is not automatically included with this kit because of shipping restrictions - if ordering for mainland UK shipping and you require MEKP, please select it from the drop-down list, otherwise it will not be included.

For further information see our Uni-Mould Advantages and Laminating Guide.

In this complete kit we include a the full Uni-Mould system include Tooling Gelcoat, Coupling Coat and Tooling Resin, along with the right amount of 100g chopped strand mat for the coupling coat and 450g chopped strand mat for the main reinforcement. Also included in the kit are the correct amount of MEKP catalyst (see Transport Info tab for important information), a plastic finned laminating roller, a pack of nitrile gloves and laminating brushes.

International Shipping

Due to its highly corrosive and oxidising nature, MEKP is not automatically included in this kit as it is NOT available for shipping to destinations other than mainland UK. MEKP is however a standard chemical and should be available from any local fibreglass supplier.

What Else You Might Need

Our Uni-Mould Starter Kit does not include any release agent so when purchasing the kit, if you don't have any release agent already you might want to consider purchasing Mould Release Wax, PVA or Chemical Release Agent depending on your requirements.

When taking moulds off original parts you will generally need a sheet material to extend the part or make 'barriers' around the edge of the part; for this we would recommend either Polypropylene Sheet or Fluted Sign Board.

Taping over holes and features on an original part is best done using Flash/Release Tape and smoothing tight corners to create softer radiuses is best done using Filleting Wax.

International Shipping

Due to its highly corrosive and oxidising nature, The MEKP Included in this kit is NOT available for shipping to any destination other than mainland UK. MEKP is however a standard chemical and should be available from any local fibreglass supplier.

None-mainland UK customers MEKP CATALYST WILL NOT BE INCLUDED WITH THE KIT.

Use with Prepregs

Although it is possible to use Uni-Mould moulds with out-of-autoclave (oven cure) prepregs (such as XPREG® XC110) we no longer recommend Uni-Mould moulds for this purpose.

Instead – for prepreg use – better results will be achieved using high temperature epoxy moulds made using our EG160 / EMP160 tooling system or XPREG® XT135 Tooling Prepreg. These high temperature epoxy tooling systems allow the prepreg to be cured at the optimum 120°C which reduces the cure time and improves the mechanical properties of the component. Additionally, epoxy tools have been found to result in a better surface finish with prepregs such as XPREG® XC110.
