EP145 is an ultra low temperature curing, high performance cost effective epoxy system. Capable of curing at 145°F (63ºC) , EP145 can display a Tg of 430° F (221ºC) when suitably post cured. It is designed for high performance applications that require ultra low cure temperature or co-laminating with temperature sensitive materials and is available as a carbon and glass reinforced product configurations.
EP145 allows high quality tooling laminates to be produced from low temperature master molds. This low temperature process offers the user a wide range of master mold materials. The user has the ability to use a low curing temperature oven or autoclave process for initial cure. The tool laminate then may be removed from the master mold for a free standing post cure. Autoclaved tools require no surface gel coat.
EP385 is a 350°F (177ºC) curing, epoxy system suitable for extremely high temperature performance. Designed for use in aerospace, transportation, propulsion and tooling applications, EP385 is a stable system and has very good tack and out time stability. EP385 displays a glass transition temperature of 393°F (201ºC).
