Cytec’s Flame-Retarded Epoxy and Phenolic Prepregs Added to Lloyd’s Register

16 April 2013

Cytec recently extended its Lloyd’s Register Type Approval by adding its flame-retarded VTM264FRB epoxy and MTM82S phenolic structural resin systems to the list.

Cytec say that the VTM264FRB is a low temperature moulding epoxy prepreg resin which can be used in conjunction with a combination of e-glass and carbon fibre reinforcements, whereas the MTM82S is a medium temperature moulding phenolic prepreg resin which can be used in conjunction with lightweight and heavyweight e-glass fibre reinforcements.

Cytec state that in a proportion of the marine market there is a requirement to meet fire regulations, and this is where both the VTM264FRB and MTM82 resin systems can be utilised to meet current standards.
