POLYPLEX GP WHITE LSE RESINS are manufactured using a medium reactivity, rigid orthophthalic polyester with excellent application properties. These resins are thixotropic, pre-promoted and are designed for hand lay-up and spray-up application with minimal drainage on inclined surfaces. They show excellent glass fibre wet out and show positive curing properties while maintaining a relatively wide green time window, and low exotherm in thick laminate sections.

Features & Benefits

Features

POLYPLEX GP WHITE LSE RESINS contain ingredients which reduce styrene emission during application and give the cured laminate a tack-free surface. Low styrene emission resins alone will not enable the user to comply with the recommended atmospheric styrene levels, but with appropriate ventilation, these resins may assist in reducing the level of styrene in the workshop to which workers are exposed.

Tests carried to TP 261.2 (Inter-laminar adhesion) show no loss in adhesion after a delay of 24 hours between layers. When a laminate is built up in stages with intermediate curing and the delay between subsequent layers is more than 24 hours then the surface must be abraded before applying further laminates to ensure good adhesion between the layers.

Storage and Handling

To ensure maximum stability and maintain optimum resin handling properties, polyester resins should be stored in closed containers, away from heat sources and sunlight. The resin should be stored away from all sources of ignition. Stored resin quantities should be kept to a reasonable minimum and used on a first in/first out stock rotation basis. Prolonged storage, or unfavourable storing conditions, may cause separation and in these situations agitation of the resin before use is recommended.
