Henkel’s aerospace group has announced the launch of Epsilon 99100, a benzoxazine RTM/VARTM resin system that has been optimized for aerospace applications. This technology is described as an innovative and effective alternative to epoxy chemistry. Epsilon 99100 significantly enhances mechanical performance and durability while lowering the costs associated with composite structure during manufacture and service. This product represents the first of a family of aerospace composite resin systems that will be introduced in 2008.

The Epsilon 99100 resin system is stable at ambient temperatures for over a year as a one-part resin. This reduces the cost of processing, storage and shipment. Additional features include: a broad processing window; viscosity stability; low heat release during cure; improved UV resistance; and more.
