Inflatable molds

One of the activities of Buitink Technology is manufacturing inflatable molds(re-usable) molds. These molds can then be equipped with a skin or finishing of polyester, ice, concrete or some other material.

At the end of the production process, the mold can be removed and possibly re-used. This production method is also called the "blowing structuring method". This method makes it possible in a relatively simple way create complex forms, for instance, blob-forms, in polyester, concrete or ice.

The development of inflatable molds is conducted by Buitink Technology in cooperation with the Technical University of Eindhoven.
