RESOLTECH 1450 ALU

Hardener 1452

Aluminium filled epoxy system

  • High TG ~ 150°C
  • Excellent thermal conductivity
  • Low viscosity, good air release properties
  • No decantation or sedimentation of the aluminium

RESOLCOAT 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. RESOLCOAT 1450 ALU combines ease of use, high thermal and mechanical properties as well as virtually no shrinkage.

RESOLCOAT 1450 ALU 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 It’s 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 150°C enables the realisation of high quality and performance parts as well as tooling for prepreg parts.
