PB 170, PB 250, PB 400 & PB 600 / DM 0.

Closed cell foam production epoxy systems from 170 to 600 kg / m3.

The PB 170 / DM 0x, PB 250 / DM 0x, PB 400 / DM 0x & PB 600 / DM 0x systems are two part epoxy formulations which produce closed cell low density foams.
The densities obtained are respectively about 170, 250, 400 and 600 kg / m3 (open mould expansion)
The resulting foam is white but can be coloured with epoxy compatible pigments.
The hardener modifies the curing time and reachable thickness.
The mix evolves in two steps:
A rapid expansion.
A slow hardening of the foam.

Performances :
Results in a low density foam.
No use of fillers such as microballoons.
Two part system.
Adheres to numerous materials.
Can be poured onto and co-cured with prepregs or other epoxy laminates.
Uniform density.
Excellent resistance to water.
Does not contain CFC’s.

Applications:
Production of epoxy foam.
Core material which can be produced “in-situ”.
Buoyancy.
Adding density to honeycombs in local areas.
Thermal insulation.
Making foam blocks to be machined or sculpted (models).
Shims.

PB 250 / SD 560.

Resilient ambiant curing epoxy foam
Display/Hide product details

The PB 250 / SD 560x system is a two part epoxy formulation which produces closed cell low density foam.
The density obtained is approximately 275 kg / m3 (open mold expansion)
The resulting foam is white but can be colored with compatible epoxy pigments.
The hardener modifies the curing time and attainable thickness.
The mix evolves in two steps:
A rapid expansion.
A slow hardening of the foam.
Simple 1 to 1 volume ratio.
This system allows to obtain resilient foams with better flexural elongation without requiring any post curing cycles.

Performances :
Results in a low density foam.
No use of fillers such as microballoons.
Two part system.
Can bond numerous materials including wet surfaces.
Uniform density.
Excellent resistance to water.
Does not contain CFC’s.

Applications:
Production of epoxy foam.
Core material which can be produced “in-situ”.
Buoyancy.
Adding density to honeycombs in local areas.
Thermal insulation.
Making foam blocks to be machined or sculpted (models).
Shims.
