Eberhard Faber offers a highly refined styling clay (short: clay) which is adjusted to the needs of the designers in car-styling as well as in industrial design. We offer four qualities: soft, medium, hard and recently light (= 42 % reduced weight). Faber clay holds finest details, can be modelled by hand or with a milling machine, doesn't age, has practically no odour and can be finished by painting. Almost all European car manufacturers and many others worldwide were convinced by the excellent quality of our products and are today loyal and satisfied customers.
Industrial plasticine or modelling clay, generally just referred to as clay, has been used for designing cars ever since around 1910. Although clay is primarily used by the car industry for designing purposes, more and more designers are beginning to use clay in other fields as well. 

 

 

Schools
 
FABER clay is becoming increasingly popular in schools and institutes of higher education:   
  At univerisities, polytechnics and technical colleges models of vacuum cleaners, cars or computer monitors are modelled using our clay.
  A whole variety of design assignements can be solved using clay. It is an ideal medium in the conceptual design phase.Some of the institutes we supply are:  

FH Pforzheim, FH Hildesheim, FH Braunschweig, FH Wiesbaden, FH Coburg, TU Dresden, RWTH Aachen, FH Aachen, BBZ for Ceramics Selb, University of Coventry, Royal College of Art, University of Huddersfield, College of Creative Studies, Detroit, Uni Linz , FH Graz,  FH Aargau-CH-Aarau etc.

Artists
 
More and more artists from a variety of genres are beginning to use our clay for their projects.  
  The clay is ideal for reflecting the finest of details and, because it is permanently malleable, can be worked with over a long period of time.  The surface does not dry out at room temperature. Once objects are finished, casts can be made of them using plaster or silicon. 
  One of our customers is a stonemason who uses our clay for making prototypes of figures before sculpting them in stone. The clay is also an ideal material for making gravestone models with, designed in accordance with customer wishes.  

Industrial design
 
In addition to being used by designers in the car industry, Faber clay is also very suitable for a variety of other applications, particularly for open space design. The clay is a permamently malleable modelling material which neither dries out nor ages, meaning that it can be used time and time again. It bonds to wooden and rigid foam surfaces.
  At room temperature (up to 25°C) models retain their contours and edges. 
  Modifications to a finished clay model are easy to make at any time by either adding or removing clay. Warmed-up clay is simply applied to the surface and, after cooling down, can be re-shaped. 
  No joins are visible. The surface of the clay model can be polished and lacquered.

Users
 
The clay is primarily used by modellers in car industry design studios - though it is becoming increasingly popular with new users from a variety of fields, e.g. industrial designers and artists. 

There are many good reasons for using EBERHARD FABER clay.

 A designer designs the form and shape of e.g. a new car and then, together with a modeller, constructs a three dimensional model of his design. 
 It is not until a 1:1 clay model has been made that the full effect of the planned design becomes truly apparent. Therefore, the clay must possess certain characteristics in order to meet the high demands of the modellers and designers.  EBERHARD FABER supplies its customers with a consistent, high quality. The clay is a permanently malleable modelling material and it is used by many design studios all around the world. We work together with almost all car manufacturers. It does not harden and can therefore be used time and time again.
 
  The clay does not dry up, does not crack and does not form a skin. By heating to approx. 60°C, the clay becomes soft and pliable. At room temperature (15 °- 25°C) clay models retain their contours and edges. The clay bonds to common surfaces such as wood and rigid foams. Modifications to the clay model are easy to make and dust-free. At room temperature, the clay can be shaped by hand or using milling machines. The surface of the clay can be covered with foil or lacquer. Invisible repairs can be made to the model by simply adding clay. The model can be 'face-lifted' - even years later - by simply applying a new layer of clay.
Casts of clay models can be made using plaster or silicon. Within a narrow tolerance range, Faber clay remains consistent regarding colour and consistency. EBERHARD FABER clay is neutral-smelling.
In addition to the standard products - soft, medium and hard - we also offer a lighter-weight clay.

 

Introducing Profil clay
 

Profile clay is used for extruding profiles, e.g. rubber strips. It does not have to be warmed up before use which means that it can be used in the extrusion press without delay. It is particularly elastic and can be bent in a tight radius without the outer edge cracking.
