Laminating Systems for High Temperature Service
Epoxy laminating resin systems consist of both unfilled and filled products that are intended for use with reinforcing fabrics to construct high performance composite tooling prototype and/or production parts. The pertinent handling and cured properties of these systems are listed below to aid in selecting the right material for your application. The products listed in this section are designed for use in applications where the cured tooling is exposed to elevated temperatures in service.

Medium viscosity, unfilled, light amber laminating resin that is designed for the construction of tooling and components that will operate in the intermediate high temperature range. Cured structures are durable and have good heat resistance .
Gray filled intermediate high temperature laminating resin for tools and fixtures. Filled to allow lower shrinkage and laminating on vertical and severely contoured surfaces without runoff. Three hardeners for a variety of laminate sizes.
Amber unfilled high temperature epoxy laminating resin designed specifically for demanding high performance composite tooling. Good handling and fabric penetration, and very high physical properties.
Black, lightly filled high temperature epoxy laminating resin designed specifically for demanding high performance composite tooling. Good handling and fabric penetration, and very high physical properties.
An unfilled amber epoxy laminating system designed for the highest service temperature applications. The extended working time of PT2876 A/B allows enough time for vacuum-bagging, yet will set well enough at room temperature to allow the laminate to be demolded from the pattern for post curing. Long tool life is obtainable for autoclave service temperatures up to 450°F., if proper fabrication techniques are use during construction. This system will easily wet-out carbon and fiberglass tooling fabrics. It can also be used for making high-temperature service composite parts.
