Epoxy Binder Systems for Automotive Preforms

EPIKOTE™ Resin preform binder systems offer numerous advantages for the mass production of composite parts:

  • Designed for RTM and LCM processes
  • Compatible with fast-curing epoxy resin matrices
  • Re-formable at lower temperatures
  • Fabric permeability is preserved
  • Variable stiffnesses / strengths available
  • Cross-linkable solutions can be used for high pressure injection
