Why Choose The "Exact-A-Form" Pad

Extensive tests were made in the development of the TOOL-A-THANE "Exact-A-Form" Pad. Many various formulations of urethane were tested along with various shapes.

The special contour shape of the forming area in the pad was developed specifically to give long pad life, minimum strain in the die components as well as the TOOL-A-THANE urethane itself. These properties coupled with the natural qualities of grades UT-15, UT-25, or UT-35 TOOL-A-THANE now provide the excellent wear characteristics required for long pad life, reduced maintenance and downtime, along with economical costing factors.
