1050T is the thixotropic version of 1050, for wet lay-up application in vertical or overhanging surfaces prone to resin dripping

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

This latest generation system, without CMR substances 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 1050T resin + 1053S system is particularly recommended for infusion thanks to its low mixed viscosity (205mPa.s).

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.

Laminates produced with the 1050T 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 system as a prime choice epoxy system for large structural laminates submitted to dynamic working efforts.
