Applications of 1450 ALU for Casting, Injection Moulding / RTM and Wet layupApplications of 1450 ALU for Casting, Injection Moulding / RTM and Wet layup


Hardener 1453

Aluminium filled epoxy system

  • Max TG 130°C
  • Excellent thermal conductivity
  • Tooling applications
  • No sedimentation over time
  • Excellent air release properties

1450 ALU is an aluminium filled epoxy casting system formulated to produce parts or moulds from a few millimetres to several centimetres thick. It is mainly used to produce moulds and tooling plugs.

Resoltech 1450 ALU system combines ease of use, high thermal and mechanical properties as well as virtually no shrinkage. It offers a good chemical resistance and its high TG makes it an ideal product for phenolic resins parts production, thermoforming or any other high TG application were the mould will be subject to thermal shocks.

It usually used for casting, but may also be used for laminating glass reinforcements and powdered mats. Its good thermal conductivity makes the 1450 ALU a choice system for heated moulds & parts.

Once cured at ambient temperature, the parts should be post-cured according to the thermal cycle indicated in this datasheet in order to obtain the maximum mechanical properties of this resin system.

It’s TG of 130°C enables the realisation of high quality and performance parts as well as tooling for prepreg parts.
