The use of porous aluminum mold materials for thermoform molds allows for improved part quality and reduced mold development time. This paper will provide a technical analysis of material performance and application in the thermoform manufacturing of automotive components. This paper will also provide material comparisons between porous aluminum materials and conventional mold materials being used in today's production environments.
