RESOLTECH 1050 ECO

Hardeners 1053S to 1059S

Biobased Structural Laminating Epoxy System

  • 34% biobased on resin part*
  • Adjustable pot life from 13mn to 13h13mn
  • Room temperature cure & mould release
  • Excellent wetting properties on all reinforcements
  • For small to XXL size parts productions

The 1050 ECO epoxy laminating system is formulated to manufacture high performance lightweight structures with glass, carbon, aramid, basalt and natural reinforcements with or without post-curing.

This latest generation system, without CMR substances (including salicylic acid) according to GHS criteria is optimized with a low exotherm, low viscosity and excellent air release properties. This epoxy system is also suitable for the manufacture of small to very large structures and composite parts by wet lay-up, infusion, injection moulding or filament winding while guaranteeing low toxicity working conditions to the users.

All hardeners mix with a 100/35 ratio and can be pre-blended together to precisely adjust the desired pot life.

The 1050 ECO resin is available in a thixotropic version 1050T ECO for wet lay-up application in vertical or overhanging surfaces prone to resin dripping.

It is possible to release the parts from the mould without post-curing. To speed up demoulding a 40ºC cure is possible and optimum thermo-mechanical properties of the laminate will be obtained after a 60ºC post-curing cycle.

With 34% of biobased carbon atoms in the resin part, the use of 1050 ECO will reduce the carbon footprint of composites structures making no concessions on thermo-mechanical performances.

Laminates produced with the 1050 ECO system will offer very good mechanical properties combined with excellent fatigue resistance thanks to its exceptional wetting properties, improving the composite interlaminar properties even on aramid reinforcements. Its elongation at break in flexion up to 5% makes the 1050 ECO system as a prime choice epoxy system for large structural laminates submitted to dynamic working efforts.
