The R058 series packs a double punch, combining the performance of epoxy resins with the processing speed of unsaturated polyester resins. Designed for vacuum infusion and resin transfer molding (RTM), R058 has excellent mechanical properties and chemical resistance. Other benefits of the epoxy vinyl ester resins include:
Room temperature cure for laminates as thin as two millimeters.
Low viscosity for shorter mold fill times and complete fiber wet-out.
Low laminate exotherm for improved surface aesthetics.
Superb strength, toughness and chemical resistance over a broad range of temperatures.
“The R058 series is an excellent choice for applications requiring lightweight and high-performance laminate,” says Mike Dettre, AOC’s Business Manager. “They don’t require post-curing or autoclaving, which makes them faster to process than most pure epoxy resins. And that’s critical for high-volume applications.”
