Mouldlife was established in 1997, as the UK distributor for Polytek® silicones and polyurethanes. Supplying materials to giftware manufacturers, sculptors, rapid tooling companies and TV & film studios. Throughout that time we firmly established ourselves as an efficient and knowledgeable supply company.
As a result of our close customer relationships we have been able to expand into different market sectors. Our product range has now evolved to include model and tooling boards, epoxy and acrylic tooling resins, release agents, adhesives and many other ancillary products.
With this growth we now supply to Vacuum Formers, Pattern Makers, Model Makers, GRP companies and PU foam product companies. As we are not tied to one supplier we have the freedom to source products from around the world.
We have purposely chosen to work with companies that continue to develop their product ranges and are prepared to push the boundaries of polymer chemistry. We have proudly only sold products we have tested ourselves and consider to be the best in each particular field.
Mouldlife's sales team has many years of industry knowledge, and are able to advise on all aspects of the applications and usage of our materials. We aim to offer next day delivery on all stock items either by our own delivery vehicles or nationwide carriers.
The supply of silicones and polyurethanes was the foundation of the company and the ability to source new and innovative products soon threw the company into new markets.
In 2001 Mouldlife found itself moving into the supply of more tooling based products and had epoxies formulated for use with vac forming tools. It was at this stage it was decided to expand the tooling division and we started to supply acrylics for RTM tools and our search for the unique model and tooling boards came to an end.
By 2005 we were still rather small in our market share for tooling boards. Our reputation for offering great service and technical support had gathered momentum and Huntsman approached us to be their distributor in the UK.
From the start of 2006 we were now distributing the advanced materials for Huntsman. This includes the Renpims, Vac casting range of resin, epoxies laminating resins, Polyurethane boards and Epoxy boards.
Together with new distribution of the structural adhesive for the Automotive Industry and the launch of new (SMP) paste technology we will be doing what we have always done by introducing new materials.
