ES160 EPOXY MATRIX GENERAL FEATURES ES160 is an advanced epoxy matrix system designed for composite tooling construction. MAIN CHARACTERISTICS ES160 is supplied in the form of both glass and carbon prepreg to offer the following advantages: low temperature cure: 10 hours at 45 C excellent surface finish work life of 3 4 days at room temperature (23 C) and 12 months when stored at -18 C low shrinkage during the curing and post-curing process service temperature up to 200 C after post-cure solvent free formulation OPERATIONAL INSTRUCTIONS This epoxy matrix system can be processed at low temperature, starting from 23 C. Temperature C ( F) Time Tg C ( F) DSC 40 (104) 14h 47 (116.6) 45 (113) 10h 51 (123.8) 50 (122) 6h 53 (127.4) CURE PROCESS RECOMMENDATIONS The curing cycle recommended is C, ramp 0,5 C/min: Dwell at RT for 60 minutes under full vacuum Apply a pressure of 6 bar Heat the laminate at a rate of 0.5 C/min to 45 C Hold the laminate at 45 C for 10 hours Cool the laminate to RT under pressure at 2 C/min The Tg of the laminate made using this cure cycle is 58 C (by DMA onset). Cure Temperature C ( F) Time Tg C ( F) E DMA 45 (113) 10h 58 (136.4) POST-CURE A free standing postcure can be used to reach the desired service temperature of the carbon tool. All the cycles below are performed with a 0,2 C/min heating ramp: Cure Postcure Tg C ( F) E DMA Tg C ( F) tan δ DMA % cure by DSC C 150 C 179 (354.2) 215 (419) 95% C 160 C 180 (356) 214 (417.2) 98% C 180 C 190 (374) 228 (442.4) 100 C 200 C 199 (390.2) 230 (446) 100 C 220 C 200 (392) 231 (447.8) 100 RESIN MATRIX GENERAL PROPERTIES Property Unit Value Standard Storage -18 C (0 F) months 12 Out 23 C (73 F) days 3 4 Prepreg volatiles %wt 0 ASTM D R03 Cured resin density g/cm ASTM D Tg E (DMA)* C ( F) 199 (390.2) ASTM E Tg Peak Tan δ (DMA)* C ( F) 230 (446) ASTM E Tack High *Laminate Fully cured C plus post cure C THERMO-MECHANICAL DMA ANALYSIS DMA trace of ES160 laminate cured for 45 C + post cure C DMA Analysis 1Hz VISCOSITY PROFILE GEL TIME Resin complex viscosity is measured under 3 C/min heating rate, 1Hz oscillating frequency. Temperature C ( F) Gel Time (min) 40 (104) (113) (122) (131) (158) 40 SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS Please consult the Material Safety Data Sheet. This product contains epoxy resin, and may cause allergic reaction. The use of latex gloves for handling is recommended. Waste material should be discarded following national law.
