CTB-44 Toolboard

High temperature, long life and easily machined for smooth surface finishes

CTB-44 is manufactured by CMT Materials for a wide variety of vacuum forming applications. It is suitable for use up to 250F (121C). CTB-44 utilizes a copolymer base material and smaller cell structure than most boards, providing improved mechanical properties and a smoother surface finish.

  • Excellent machinability
  • Superior edge definition
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Outstanding surface finish
