3 Agenda 1.Introduction to CMT Materials 2.Definitions 3.HYTAC plug assist materials 4.Benefits of plug assist in thermoforming

4 Understanding CMT Materials Who we are: an innovative materials company What we do: design and develop innovative tooling materials for the thermoforming industry

5 What is Syntactic Foam? “A class of material with pre-formed hollow glass spheres held in a polyester or epoxy binder.”

6 What is a Plug Assist? A plug assist is a mechanical device used to aid or assist sheet stretching prior to total contact with the thermoform mold.

7 HYTAC ® Plug Assist Material HYTAC syntactic foam plug assist material is designed and tested for optimal performance in thermoforming applications. There are currently 8 grades of HYTAC, each with specific properties and benefits HYTAC is manufactured in sheets, rods and can be custom cast HYTAC is sold and distributed around the world
