These resins are designed for long adjustable gel times and low peak exotherm (less than 150 degrees F.) They also provide excellent glass wetting with high flow and mold-fill rates, advancing the speed for the vacuum infusion molding process.Composite fabricators using available resin infusion molding processes will find Hydrex 100-HF is engineered to fit the process.
Large complex composite structures and molds can be created with Hydrex 100-HF resins by employing a number of infusion techniques where liquid resin is drawn under vacuum pressure into a closed-mold cavity sealed by plastic film membrane.
In recommended applications, Hydrex 100-HF resins can be used to mold moderate (5 sq. ft.) to large (500 sq. ft. or larger) composite moldings of watercraft, automobiles, recreational vehicles, trucks, windmills and a variety of similar components.
Hydrex 100-HF is based on Reichhold's "Performance Proven - Time Tested" Hydrex vinyl ester resin technology, making it ideal for fabrication of marine structures.
