Applications of 1020 for Adhesives and Wet layupApplications of 1020 for Adhesives and Wet layup


Hardeners 1023S to 1029S

Multipurpose Epoxy Laminating System

  • Adjustable pot life from 15mn to 10h44min
  • Good elongation characteristics
  • Wide choice of reactivities (6 miscible hardeners)
  • Little sensitivity to humidity during application
  • Available in thixotropic version (1020T)

RESOLTECH 1020 is a room temperature epoxy laminating system for wood-epoxy, concrete reinforcement and metal constructions that are inherently moving structures.

In boat building, it may be used for: all woods types lamination, coating, scarfing, strip planking, as well as bonding in form of fillet joints applications when filled with wood flour and silica.

Thanks to its low viscosity and a wide range of hardeners (11 min to 9h20min), it allows applications in both traditional wet layup, vacuum bagging or under press. A thixotropic version , the 1020T is available for vertical or overhanging applications prone to dripping.

The mixing ratio for all hardeners of this system is 100:30 by weight. All hardeners are compatible and can be mixed to obtain intermediate reactivities.

The 1020 exceptional wettability makes hand lamination easier to the workers while guaranteeing a safer work place due to the low toxicity of this system, it contains no CMR components and complies to the latest 2015 REACH European regulation.

The 1020 resin system is also widely used in civil engineering applications on glass and carbon laminates where its little sensitivity to humidity during its application and good curing properties at ambient temperature are appreciated.

The 1020 system is often used together with:

  • 1010: Water based epoxy primer for porous supports
  • 2040G: Fillet joint adhesive paste
  • 8050: Epoxy filler
