Crystic® Polyester Resin 702PAX
Crystic 702PAX is a pre-accelerated, orthophthalic polyester resin, primarily developed for use as a vacuum injection resin, though it can be used in other applications. It has low viscosity and excellent controlled exotherm characteristics, making it particularly suitable for the manufacture of larger structures.
This resin has excellent mechanical properties and impact resistance, and it is compatible with most reinforcement types, including polyaramids such as Kevlar. It is therefore a popular resin for industrial use, in sectors including marine, wind energy, building/construction, and transportation, and is Lloyds approved.
Both the resin, mould and workshop should be at or above 15°C before curing begins, requiring only the addition of a catalyst for the process to be started. Other additives may have adverse effects on the resin and a Scott Bader specialist should be consulted before any additions are made. For Crystic 702PAX to reach its optimum properties, laminates should be post-cured.
