Self extinguishing structural Epoxy Foaming System

  • Density 430 kg/m3
  • Post Curing optional
  • Excellent mechanical properties

RESOLTECH 2080 MF40 is a liquid foaming epoxy casting system formulated to produce low density , closed cell, self extinguishing structural cores.

RESOLCOAT 2080 MF40 has a (free) expansion coefficient of 3,6, enabling the epoxy foam production 430 kg/m3 epoxy foam. The slow, controlled foaming reaction makes un-necessary the use of mixing machines like with PU foams – The low pressure of the foaming will enable direct casting in the final parts with no conforming moulds without alteration of the dimensions of the composite.

The 2080 MF40 self extinguishing foam complies to UL94V0

This system is available in black, white or neutral colour (to be pigmented with any colour)

The main advantages of this epoxy foaming system over existing systems are:

  • No fragile stage after the foaming making it un-necessary to cure before releasing from mould or to post cure depending on the mechanical characteristics needed.
  • Perfect compatibility with pre-pregs and epoxy resins even in during their polymerisation
  • Excellent resistance to water
  • Major improvement of thermal and mechanical resistances compared to existing epoxy foams
  • Homogenous structure of the foam
  • No V.O.C emission
