PRO-SET® Laminating epoxies are a versatile system of liquid resins and hardeners designed to meet a wide range of wet lay-up laminating applications.
PRO-SET Laminating epoxies are used to produce lightweight, high-performance composite structures that will withstand long-term cyclic loading in the harshest environments.
These epoxies develop excellent physical properties at room temperature and may be post-cured for enhanced performance. Other features include:
- Ability to bond to many different types of core materials
- including wood, metal and all reinforcing fabrics
- Excellent moisture resistance
- Superior resistance to heat
- Superior resistance to fatigue
