Surface Coat Epoxies

EpoxAcoat®

Thixotropic epoxy gel coats which are widely used for hand laminating/tooling applications. They are tough and strong surface coat resins which cure at room temperature and offer exceptional abrasion resistance. EpoxAcoat® RED and EpoxAcoat® GREY are easy to use, wet out well over a variety of surfaces and will coat vertical surfaces without sagging.

Composites Tooling

Fiberglass cloth is laminated behind the EpoxAcoat® surface coat using EpoxAmite® Laminating Epoxy to produce strong, lightweight tools that have excellent dimensional stability and surface finish. Free Form AIR® Epoxy Putty can also be used in conjunction with EpoxAcoat® and EpoxAmite® to produce tooling to be used in hand lay up or vacuum bagging composite parts.
