The Resin Research Epoxy Systems can be used effectively with simple room temperature cure or
as an elevated temperature system providing for very high quality, structurally superior composites. Elevated cure cycles
give this system higher Tg and HDT through higher crosslink density. Superior to room temperature systems they also give the
best toughness to modulus ratios.
These systems are based on very new epoxy/cycloalaphatic
resin/hardener technology which gives better adhesion and interlaminate wetting characteristics within the fabric fiber bundles.
This provides for the manufacture of high strength to weight composites with superior heat resistance, excellent fatigue and
toughness properties and moisture exclusion effectiveness. Through this chemistry and the effective technique of post curing,
the ability of composites to withstand cyclic loading in harsh environments is enhanced.
of the nature of this system, the processing of the Resin Research Epoxy materials matrix allows for broad range of techniques.
The three resins and three hardeners allow for numerous qualities to be obtained through materials selection. This allows
for all processes including wet lay up, contact molding, vacuum bagging, infusion, etc. to be fine tuned to exacting standards.
