Detailed Product Description:
System 2000 Epoxy Resin is a low viscosity, light amber laminating resin that
is designed for fabricating parts and for other demanding structural applications.
Use this system to maximize the physical properties of carbon fiber, Kevlar®,
and S-Glass laminates. Test results have proven superiority of this formulation over
other room temperature cure epoxies. Its low viscosity and great handling
characteristics make it a favorite in the home workshop also.
Three high performance hardener systems are available for the System 2000 resin—the
20 minute, 60 minute and 120 minute pot life versions are all options. This added
variety allows the fabricator to select the system best suited to the size, complexity,
or time-frame of the project. Simple parts which need to be de-molded quickly should
use the 20 minute hardener. Larger and more complex parts can use either of the other
Vacuum Bagging applications would typically warrant the longest 2 hour working time.
As with any epoxy system, adhere to the proper mix ratios and maintain an adequate
curing temperature of at least 70˚F. The cure time will be cut in half for every 10˚F that
the temperature is raised above 70˚F. Purchase a single cure, or buy resin in bulk and
order a variety of hardeners to keep on hand for any project.
Chopped strand mat contains a binder which prevents proper bonding with epoxy resins.
Use our polyester or vinyl ester resins with chopped strand mat.
