Plastic board material

Plastic board material

The hardened, semi-finished board made from polyurethane or epoxy resin is not a natural product and therefore exhibits consistent chemical and mechanical qualities. It can be processed manually or machined.

RAKU® TOOL board material

RAMPF has been producing “plastic board materials” for over 30 years. As the market leader, we have developed the world’s largest production of styling, modeling, and working board materials. Our portfolio of plastic board materials comprises a high-performance standard range that we can quickly adapt to meet technical requirements on the market.
