Solvay MTM® 348FR Epoxy Resin
Categories: Polymer; Adhesive; Thermoset; Epoxy; Epoxy Adhesive

Material Notes: MTM348FR is a 120°C (248°F), versatile curing epoxy resin prepreg matrix designed for railway applications to offer fire protection on railway vehicles to meet Category HL2 of EN45545-2:2013. MTM348FR has excellent mechanical properties and is ideal for the manufacture of lightweight components for both interior and exterior structural and non-structural applications. MTM348FR is also suitable for other mass transportation applications where a high degree of fire performance is demanded.

Features & Benefits:

  • 30 days out life at 21°C (70°F)
  • 12 months storage life at -18°C (0°F)
  • Meets the requirements of Category HL2 of EN45545-2:2013
  • 120°C (248°F) recommended cure
  • Excellent fire, smoke and toxicity performance
  • Available on a wide range of fiber reinforcements.
