Epoxy resins are an essential material for lightweight construction in high-tech areas such as racing, boat building, the automotive industry, rail vehicle construction and wind power. ebalta epoxy resins are two-component systems cover a very wide range of applications: for mould and tool making.
Due to their high strength and high heat resistance, ebalta’s general-purpose and laminating resins are suitable for the production of composite parts, laminate moulds, backfilling or as binding resins for fillers. Due to the varied choice of hardeners, pot life can be optimally adjusted.
Epoxy Laminating Resins
ebalta all-purpose resins and laminating resins are ideally suited for extensive tools and parts with high accuracy. They are very comfortable to work with and are characterised by very low shrinkage. The wide range of epoxy hardeners makes it possible to adjust the pot life and thus optimise the working process.
The temperature-resistant all-purpose laminating resin systems are used for moulds in vehicle, aircraft and boat construction, both for manual lamination and for the vacuum infusion process. With vacuum infusion, a higher fibre or lower resin content is achieved for the same component weight.
Epoxy Casting Resins
The epoxy casting resins from ebalta have compressive strength and high heat resistance. This makes them suitable for vacuum forming moulds, PU and RIM foam moulds but also as foundry patterns requiring high dimensional accuracy and low sand adhesion. The resins are characterised by very low shrinkage. At the same time, ebalta epoxy casting resins are very abrasion-resistant, chemical-resistant, easy to polish and have a dense surface.
Which epoxy casting resin is suitable to produce cast models and moulds depends on model size and number of pieces. Large volumes can be produced reliably whether in solid casting, front layer casting or using the build-up processes.
