The partnership has resulted in Base becoming technical experts in Marbocote’s products and can give clear and reliable advice on which product to use and application technique, saving time and money.

Base Materials, a manufacturer of styling, modelling, pattern and tooling materials, has been working with Marbocote, who manufacture and distribute a wide range of high technology semi-permanent mould release agents, to bring innovative new products to the F1, motorsport, automotive and aerospace sectors, among others, in the UK and overseas.

Marbocote’s newest product, MTS12, is the latest innovation in the composites market. With a fast cure time, the non-contaminating, high gloss product is quick and easy to apply, ideal for use in the aerospace industry. With superior adhesion to the mould/tool surface and inherent release properties, the MTS12 is believed to be unique in the market.

Base and Marbocote have worked together since 2001 in order to offer the highest level of service to their clients.

According to a new market report published by Lucintel in 2019, the UK composites market is expected to reach $1.2 billion by 2024, with the key sectors of growth including the aerospace, automotive and energy industries.

Growth of sales and innovation is not limited to the UK, with Base rapidly expanding to new markets across Europe, including in Germany and Italy. The European composites market size was worth US$16.6 billion in 2018, and an increasing demand of lightweight materials suggests continuous growth in this sector. 

Mr Lambert continued: “Our sales team have had in-depth technical training from Marbocote and now we are all specialists of the Marbocote product range. Discussing the Marbocote products with our clients allows us to make tailored solutions that meets their needs and ensures a superior finish and better result for the end user.”
