Because of its high degree of stability and its excellent edge strength, the M600 board is a considerably more durable and robust model making material than rigid foam made of either PS or PUR. Its high density and the uniform smooth surface make it a good choice for producing data control models and master models as well as basic deep drawing moulds. In addition, it can also be used to make precisely shaped small parts that can be primed and painted without the need of any filling work.
Processing: When being machined, the M600 throws off much less dust than many of the products with the same density with which it is in competition. Its dense surface takes very well to being glued with cyanacrylate adhesives (superglue). Note: a bond will hold much better if the board is lightly moistened beforehand.
