Composed of epoxy resin and amine hardener, for impregnating glass fiber laminates and obtaining good mechanical and chemical resistance. The system has a low viscosity.
The epoxy resin should catalyze to 20% by weight, that is, 5 parts of epoxy resin and 1 part of catalyst. Potlife 120 g to about 25 ° C 60-80 minutes.
Epoxy resins are used in the construction of molds as masterpieces, rolling parts, extrusions and other aids to industrial production. The results are cheaper, stronger and faster to produce than those made of wood, metal, etc. The fibers and epoxy compounds, but are more expensive than polyester resins or vinyl ester, produce more resistant parts.
