New Industrial Design Clay at Fibre Glast

Y2-KlayFibre Glast has brought in a new industrial design clay. It is a hard, sulfer-free styling clay that can be used for prototypes, patterns, and even as a plug! Chavant Y2-Klay Industrial Design Clay is workable at 135°F and is hard at or below room temperature. The sulfur-free, low odor formula of Y2-Klay makes for a better working environment, and is 30%-40% lighter than other industrial styling clay; making the models easier to move and handle. Resistant to shrinking and cracking, Y2-Klay holds excellent surface detail and can be milled or shaped with tools.

The slideshow below contains actual projects made using Y2-Klay Industrial Design Clay.

Billet (cylinder) Size: 1.75 lb billet
Approximate Billet dimensions: 2-1/2″ Diameter x 10″ Long
Net Case Weight: 35 lbs (20 x 1.75 lb billets)

Final clay forms made with Y2-Klay can be used as a plug, impression mold, or as a male or female mold. In order to use Y2-Klay as a mold-making material, the clay surface needs to be primed or top coated. To prepare the clay surface, spray 3 mist coats of PVA directly onto the clay. After the PVA has dried into a film, #1041 Duratec Gray Surfacing Primer or Tooling Gel Coat can be sprayed over the PVA to obtain a proper mold surface.
*Note: If Y2-Klay is used as a mold-making material, the original clay form will likely be destroyed.
