    Achievable radii

    What is the smallest achievable radius possible for
    ariex c70 60kg/m3 ?

    What temperature is needed to do this?

    What sort of radius is possible when the material is still at room temperature?

    BR

    Smallest radius....well it is simply a matter of cutting the material to thin slices and then relaminating it. The smallest radius is entirely up to you doing this. It is normal practice to laminate thin sheets to form even compound curves.
