Solvay LTM® 10 Epoxy Resin
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Epoxy

Material Notes: LTM10 series tooling prepregs are low temperature curing epoxy resins systems that can be post cured to produce tools with a service temperature of 200°C (392°F). These series of prepregs are suitable for the manufacture of small to large tools.

Features & Benefits:

  • 2 to 6 days out life at 21°C (70°F)
  • Minimum of 6 months storage at -18°C (0°F)
  • Autoclave cure
  • Mold tools directly from low temperature master
  • Prepregs have excellent tack and drape
  • Initial cure temperatures down to 20°C (68°F)
  • Able to produce tools with low residual stress
  • Unsupported (free standing) post-cure
  • Low tool shrinkage matched to Cytec’s tooling block expansion during cure
  • Low tooling coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) matched with Cytec-supplied backing structures
  • Good retention of mechanical properties up to 180°C (356°F) when fully post cured
  • Long term service up to 200°C (392°F) in air
Product Variants:
LTM10: Suitable for rapid, very low temperature initial cure of smaller tools
LTM12: Suitable for low temperature initial cure of small-medium tools
LTM16: Suitable for low to medium temperature initial cure of large tools due to longer out life
