Custom Molds for Face Mask Production

The Challenge

Maker Mask was looking to make masks more widely available through volume production. They needed a way to validate end-use materials and final design prior to launching full scale injection molding production. Traditional tooling methods were out of scope for design verification, being too costly and time intensive.

The Solution

Using LOCTITE IND147 HDT230 Tough Natural, Fortify’s engineering team was able to produce a complex mold that had high heat deflection and a superior surface finish, two factors critical to the injection molding process.  

Benefit

  • Reduced lead time by 6-8 weeks
  • Significant cost savings (compared to traditional tooling)
  • Design verification
