Abstract : Utilizing an epoxy metal filled resin, investigations were conducted in the form of physical tests and actual industrial applications in order to evaluate the use of this material as plastic tooling. Physical tests were performed to study the mixing and pouring procedure and also to examine the dimensional stability of this resin. Two plastic tools were fabricated utilizing the casting method. The tooling was then employed to process two industrial components. These components were evaluated for dimensional accuracy. (Author-PL).
