SICOMIN FOAMING EPOXY

Sicomin has developed a renowned range of multiple density foaming systems that, when combined with one of Sicomins large choice of hardeners, creates versatile core material and a high strength bond between two laminate skins made of epoxy, polyester or vinylester resins.

These systems have a very low expansion pressure and are applicable in various fields such as hollow body reinforcements, energy absorption, shock, vibration, dielectric and thermal insulation.

FOAMING EPOXY

  • Closed cell foam production epoxy systems from 170 to 600 kg / m³.

  • The PB 170 / DM 0x, PB 250 / DM 0x, PB 400 / DM 0x & PB 600 / DM 0x systems are two part epoxy formulations which produce closed cell low density foams

  • The densities obtained are respectively about 170, 250, 400 and 600 kg / m³ (open mould expansion)

  • The resulting foam is white but can be coloured with epoxy compatible pigments

  • The hardener modifies the curing time and reachable thickness

  • The mix evolves in two steps: rapid expansion and a slow hardening of the foam

Performance Characteristics

Results in a low density foam

  • No need for fillers such as microballoons

  • Adheres to a wide selection of materials

  • Can be poured onto and co-cured with prepregs or other epoxy laminates

  • Uniform density

  • Excellent resistance to water

  • CFC Free

Applications

  • Production of epoxy foam

  • Core material which can be produced “in-situ”

  • Buoyant and adds density to honeycombs in local areas

  • Thermal insulation

  • Suitable for making foam blocks to be machined, sculpted or modelled
