aluminum filled epoxy is used to backfill mold for injection molding. 1/4" or 3/8" copper tubing is first laid in to remove heat with cooling water, then the expoxy is pored in. the mold are good for 250-500 shots, or if lucky, a thousand shots. this info is from a lecture by Paul Jacobs last spring.
