epoxy resin / laminating / translucent / low-viscosity
CLEAR EPOXY LAMINATING SYSTEM¬ Excellent clarity¬ Good ultra-violet resistance¬ Rapid fibre wet-outINTRODUCTIONSP 115 is a low viscosity, ultra-clear epoxy laminating system. It has been designed for the manufacture of laminatessuch as those used in sail and surfboards which are to remain unpainted, and where a very clear finish is required.In this way colourful embedded graphics and attractive fabric weave styles can be kept visible. The material alsocontains UV filters which give the product its characteristic transparent pale violet/blue colour. These filters bothenhance the sharpness of graphics, and, when overcoated with a suitable UV-screening PU varnish, will reduce thetendency of clear laminates to yellow after prolonged exposure to sunlight. The product is particularly suitable foruse with glass fibre reinforcements which use fibre sizings optimised for wet-out and laminate clarity, such asRE210D.SP 115 also exhibits a high degree of toughness and water resistance, enhancing the strength and damage toleranceof the thin laminates typically used in sail and surfboard manufacture. Being completely solvent and styrene-free,polystyrene foam blanks can be safely used to produce boards of the lightest possible weight.
