Materials – Resin

A number of composite properties are determined by the resin. Resin, though not carrying the load of the part, transfers load between fibers. Resin provides the sensitive fiber, protection from damage.

Resin Selection

Optimum composite design starts by selecting resin, best suited for the application environment. As the load sharing and fiber protection services of the resin degrade from environmental attack, so will the composite properties.

Improved Strength Under Variable Conditions

Under specific environmental conditions different formulations offer the ability to optimize Tensile, Compressive and shear moduli as well as Impact resistance. Some resins offer better temperature performance at cryogenic, others  up to 500F.

Resin Possibilities

There is an unlimited pool of components to tailor specific performance for our composite parts depending on the conditions of life cycle demands.

Environmental Resistance

Each resin shows specific strength performance characteristics under influence of the following variables:

  • Temperature
  • UV
  • Water
  • Chemicals such as Acid, alkali, salt, solvents, oils and fuels

Resin Dominated Properties

Resins display specific physical characteristics strongly influencing composite performances (more so in the transverse direction) such as:

  • Thermal expansion
  • Electrical Conductivity
  • Dielectric strength
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Water absorption
