RESOLTECH 1020

Hardeners 1023S to 1029S

Multipurpose Epoxy Laminating System

  • Adjustable pot life from 11mn to 9h20min
  • Good elongation to break characteristics
  • Little sensitivity to humidity during application
  • Available in thixotropic version (1020T)

The new version (2015) of RESOLTECH 1020 is a room temperature epoxy laminating system for woodepoxy, 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 atambient temperature are appreciated.

The 1020 system is often used together with:

  • RESOLCOAT 1010: Water based epoxy primer for porous supports
  • RESOLTECH 2040G: Fillet joint adhesive paste
  • RESOLTECH 8020: Epoxy filler
