Technical Details & Test Data+
The versatility of GMS Composites BP-190 means a range of cure cycles, pressures and ramp up rates can be adopted all of which will depend greatly on the part being produced. Below shows the effect temperature and time has on the properties of the materia
|Temperature (°C)||Time||Tg (°C) - DSC7|
- Heat ramp up rate – 2°C / min
- Pressure – 1 bar
|150||60 - 100|
|200||3 - 5|
|250||< 1 min|
Values are indicative of small samples of neat resin formulation. Gel times may vary significantly in composites depending on fibre content and laminate thickness.
