EPOXY LAMINATING SYSTEM
- Optimum mechanical performance
- High Tg's from elevated temperature cures
Ampreg 26 is Gurit’s premium epoxy laminating system, and is particularly suitable for the manufacture of large, high performance composite structures. The product’s high laminate mechanical properties and high Tg’s achievable from modest postcures, make it well suited for heavily loaded applications, particularly those where a little extra thermal performance is required. Ampreg 26 is optimised for use in hand-lay up and vacuum bagging processes, but can also be used in other processes such as RTM, vacuum infusion, pultrusion and filament winding.
Ampreg 26 is recognised worldwide as the premium laminating system for the manufacture of racing sailboats, and high performance, one-off cruising boats. It has been selected by the RNLI in the UK for the wet lay-up components of their high-speed coastal rescue vessels, and it is in use on the VSV rapid troop insertion craft, in service with the UK’s SBS and US Marine Corps.
Ampreg 26 may also be used with the separate Ampreg Ultra Slow hardener to provide flow times under vacuum of up to 9 hours at 20°C.
