About Epoxy Casting and Epoxy Laminating Resins

two bottles of Epoxy Casting and Epoxy Laminating ResinA broad range of products are available in both epoxy casting and epoxy laminating resins. By proper selection, the requirements of an application can be closely matched for consistent high quality results. These tooling materials are designed for ease-of-use, and their cured properties will usually exceed the requirements of the application. Our product offerings have minimum hazard potential and provide consistent high performance results in the most demanding applications.The PTM&W Epoxy Tooling line is an extensive group of materials designed to provide tough, durable molds, patterns and tools for both room temperature and high temperature service. Included in these products are surface coat systems, laminating materials and casting compounds that are tailored for specific areas of application.

Formulations vary by manufacturer, brand, and grade. Ask your Curbell Plastics representative for more specific information about an individual option or brand.

Epoxy surface coats (room temp, high temp)– are paste-viscosity resins designed to be applied by brush or squeegee to a model or pattern to function as the surface of the cured tool. They generally possess handling properties that facilitate easy mixing and application, and their cured properties provide a tough, durable surface that can be sanded or scribed with ease.

Epoxy laminating resin systems (room temp, high temp)– consist of both unfilled and filled products that are intended for use with reinforcing fabrics to construct high performance composite tooling prototypes and/or production parts.

Epoxy casting resins (room temp, high temp)– are versatile products that can provide an excellent solution to a variety of industrial applications. They generally contain a filler of some type that is provided to produce specific handling or cured properties. These fillers can be of a metallic or non-metallic nature. Certain fillers can provide lower shrinkage, higher compressive strengths, better metal forming properties, or other characteristics suited to a particular use. A variety of systems, for both room temperature as well as high temperature service are available with different hardeners to more closely match the material to the application.

Vacuum-assist resin-transfer method (VARTM)– is the procedure of infusing a resin matrix into plies of dry fabric, under vacuum, to make composite laminates. In this process, dry plies of fabric are laminated onto a hard mold surface along with release plies, flow media, vacuum lines, and resin distribution lines, with the entire laminate placed under a vacuum bag. Infusion resin/hardeners are batch-mixed and sucked into the laminate, by vacuum, through resin distribution lines. VARTM-type resin systems are identified by very low mixed viscosities and longer working times. Resin infusion for tooling has a number of advantages over using prepreg tooling materials: much lower material costs, easier ply positioning, less chance of delamination, no autoclave required, room-temperature demold, free-standing post cure, no refrigerated storage, and long shelf life. Resin infusion for production parts offers the same advantages as for tooling. This process is usually reserved for large structures such as boats or composite car bodies.
