This company recently unveiled a new epoxy system to hasten mass production of carbon-fiber composites for lightweight automotive structural components. Curing in as little as two minutes, the low-viscosity EPIKOTE™ resin 05475 and EPIKURE™ curing agent 05500 system can facilitate industrial scale high- or low-pressure RTM, with direct infusion of carbon fibers. 

Features and benefits of the new system include: a very low viscosity at the recommended injection and cure temperature of 115–120°C, and a long injection window of about one minute. The system can provide a solution for the production of structural composite parts in a shorter cycle time.
