HexFlow® RTM 6 - 1

HexFIow® RTM 6 180°C mono-component epoxy system for Resin Transfer Moulding and Infusion technologies Product Data Description HexFIow® RTM 6 is a degassed, monocomponent resin specifically designed for resin transfer moulding (RTM) processes and to fulfil the requirements of the aerospace industry. Nature HexFlow® RTM 6 is a premixed epoxy system for service temperatures from -60°C up to 120°C (-75°F up to 248°F). At room temperature, it is a brown translucent paste but its viscosity decreases quickly by increasing the resin temperature. Advantages ■ Monocomponent system ■ Already degassed. Ready for use ■ High glass transition temperature ■ Excellent hot/wet properties ■ Easy to process (low injection pressure) ■ Long injection window >150 min at recommended injection temp. ■ Low moisture absorption ■ Short, simple cure cycles Transport classification Product classification: ■ HexFlow® RTM 6 Mono-Component: UN 3233 division 4.1 (type C) Availability HexFlow® RTM 6 resin is available with a wide range of Injectex®, HexForce® and multiaxial fabrics (carbon, glass, aramid, hybrid). Storage ■ Shelf Life @ 23°C 15 days minimum ■ Guaranteed Shelf Life @ -18°C 9 months Typical Resin Properties
