If you mean the overall size limitation of the keltool process, then I think
this is due to size limits of the equipment used in keltool production.
I've seen larger keltools made from multiple inserts.

Dear all,

                Please can anybody help, I am looking for two things

                        1. what are the mechanical properties of the resin
used in the direct aim process
                        2. Why has ketool got a size limitation, is due to
the different shrink rates during the process
regards nik

many thanks in advance
