LOCTITE - Casting Resins Based on Epoxy and Polyurethane Technology
Casting Resins Based on Epoxy and Polyurethane Technology
Possessing versatile characteristics, casting resins based on epoxy and polyurethane technology have been steadily gaining ground over the past decades.
They can be chemically engineered to be very hard and impact resistant or soft and elastic.
A casting resin usually consists of two basic components which are mixed and react with each other to form a cross-linked product.
Systems of this kind generally display high strength, are easy to apply, and have very good gap filling properties.
Polyurethane casting resins are compatible with a broad range of materials and withstand temperatures of up to 120°C (with brief peaks up to 150°C).
If higher temperatures are required (up to 180°C), epoxy casting resins are used.
