EPOXY GEL COATS

Cristex offers two different products, MG 536/W 503 with a heat resistance upto 150ᵒC and another which is MG 536/K 58 which offers a heat resistance upto 180ᵒC

MG 536/W 503 150ᵒC

This Gelcoat is suitable for application in small and medium moulds with epoxy pre-pregs. This Gelcoat is a two component epoxy system thixotropic with a high thermal and chemical resistance. This system is RoHS compliant. The process is to apply a thick layer and then allow to cure at room temperature however the curing process can be accelerated by the use of moderate temperature (35-40ᵒC).

 

MG 536/K 58/180ᵒC

This Gelcoat is suitable for applications in large size tools and heat resistant moulds upto 180ᵒC. This Gelcoat is a two component epoxy system thixotropic with a high thermal and chemical resistance. The process is to apply a thick layer and then allow to cure at room temperature however the curing process can be accelerated by the use of moderate temperature (35-40ᵒC).
