A polyfunctional, heat-resistant epoxy resin, EP34CA, is suited for use in high-performance composite structures and in potting and casting applications. When used in conjunction with select hardeners, EP34CA produces a low-viscosity system particularly suited for filament windings of glass, graphite, and Kevlar fibers, and boron composites, as well as pultruded structures. Cured composite structures feature a high glass-transition temperature (Tg), elevated temperature properties, chemical resistance, and radiation resistance. EP34CA can be used up to 260°C (500°F) service temperatures. Systems based on EP34CA exhibit long working life at room temperature when formulated with aromatic amine or anhydride hardeners.
