Park Electrochemical has introduced its new E-710 Easycure low temperature cure, toughened epoxy prepreg family of products for automotive, industrial, wind energy and aerospace composite components.
E-710 Easycure prepreg products are designed to cure at temperatures between 160degF and 200degF with cure times ranging from 13 hours at 160degF to 2 hours at 200degF in an out-of-autoclave process. Park say that E-710 Easycure has an out-life of up to 60 days at temperatures below 75degF, and they are also offering E-710FR Easycure - an enhanced flame-retardancy version of the product which meets the requirements of US D.O.T. FMVSS 302 for automotive applications.
