Structural Epoxy Foaming system

  • Density 170 kg/m3
  • Post Curing optional
  • Excellent mechanical properties

RESOLTECH 2080 M17 is a liquid foaming epoxy casting system formulated to produce low density , closed cell, strutural cores.

RESOLCOAT 2080 M17 has a (free) expansion coefficient of 6.5, enabling the epoxy foam production 170 kg/m3 epoxy foam. The slow, controled 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.

This system is available in black, white or neutral colour (to be pigmented with any colour) The main avantages of theis epoxy foaming system over existing systems are:

  • No fragile stage after the foaming making it un-necessary to cure beofre releasing from mould or to postcure depending on the mechanical characteristics needed.
  • Perfect compatibility with pre-pregs and epoxy resins even in during their polimerizationation
  • 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
