Huntsman Epoxy Resin Systems Receive Lloyd’s Register Type Approval

26 March 2013

A range of the latest epoxy resin systems from Huntsman Advanced Materials have received certification from the Lloyd’s Register Type Approval.

The five certified systems target different processes and applications including composites tooling, repairs and structural parts production:

  • Araldite LY 1564 / Aradur 3486 and Araldite LY 1564 / Aradur 3487 are robust systems which Huntsman claims to have a strong track record of successful applications in large composite parts via infusion processing.
  • Araldite LY 1564 / Aradur 3486 presents viscosity and pot life making it suitable for several other production processes such as wet lay-up, R, filament winding or pultrusion.
  • Araldite LY 1568 / Aradur 3489 which Huntsman say has a low exothermic behaviour and therefore a long pot life can be used for producing thick structures up to 50mm using infusion processing. This system is also suitable for R, wet lay-up or filament winding production processes.
  • Araldite LY 3505 / XB 3403 are used in the wet-lay-up process.
  • RenLam CY 219 / Ren HY 5160 have been designed to satisfy requirements of repair applications with room temperature curing capabilities.

Designed to ensure products meet recognised standards or specifications, the impartial verification and certification service provided by the Lloyd’s Register Type Approval is widely referred to by designers and engineers across the marine industry during the product selection process.

Increasing demands for high performance materials and advanced rapid production techniques in marine applications represent a key factor in Huntsman’s development of new products. The company is committed to offering products that are designed to meet specific marine composites construction challenges.
