Room temperature mould release
Final TG up to 114º C
The 1080T is the thixotropic version of the 1080S, for wet lay-up application in vertical or overhanging surfaces prone to resin dripping.
RESOLTECH 1080T is the highest modulus epoxy system formulated by RESOLTECH to manufacture high performance, rigid, lightweight structures with glass, carbon, aramid and basalt fibres with or without post-curing.
Using this novolac based epoxy resin will enable to reduce the amount of reinforcement fibre used, resulting in lighter, more rigid but also cheaper parts in spite of its higher price compared to more common Bisphenol A & F based resins.
This new generation system, optimized with a low reactivity, low viscosity and excellent air release properties, is suitable for the manufacture any size structures and composite parts by hand layup while guaranteeing low toxicity working conditions to the user and ease of use thanks to its high wetting properties.
It features an adjustable working time from 20min to 8h45min with its range of hardeners.
It is possible to release the parts from the mould without post-curing. The maximum thermo mechanical properties of the laminate will be obtained after a post-curing cycle to obtain a final TG of 114ºC. Nevertheless, a post cure is not mandatory depending on the final use of the parts.
The resulting structures will result in very rigid with high mechanical and the best interlaminar properties.
