HyVarC Hybrid Invar/Composite Layup Molds
For development and prototype applications
Ascent’s latest advance combines the advantageous characteristics of Invar® and composite tools into a patent-pending hybrid tool – HyVarC®. HyVarC specialty tooling combines a thin Invar backup structure and facesheet with a bonded, high-temperature composite working surface. The resulting tool is 50% lighter than a traditional Invar tool and boasts a 20% shorter lead-time than a traditional composite tooling solution.
