Our vegetable oil-based (VOB) two-part epoxy system relates to hypoallergenic and virtually non-toxic green organic resins for use in the formation of fiberglass and other fiber reinforced composites. During the curing stage, the VOB system does not vent off or contain any volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and is non-toxic.
1) The VOB system has demonstrated elongation properties of more than 5-10 times that of the standard resin systems.
2) The chemistry of this VOB system allows for the formation of tough leather-like materials as well as a hard, but resilient materials. This lends itself to forming a wide array of products.
3) Because this material can form a firm leather-like material, it readily absorbs shock without initiating tears or cracks. When used to make fiberglass or other fiber reinforced composites, a product emerges that is very hard and yet shows exceptional elongation properties that enable it to absorb intense shocks without initiating failures. The resin and fiber work well together to produce the best properties in the composite.
4) Because of the system dependency on a catalyst, it is possible to vastly change the reaction rate without altering the properties of the cured material. This helps to simplify the system and make it more versatile.
5) An interesting feature of our green resin system is the way it works with our unique catalyst. The rate of cure is strongly dependent on the cure temperature and increases by a factor of 3-5 times with temperatures ranging from 60 °F to 90 °F. This allows one to use a catalyst level that provides a long working time at room temperature, but permits the product to cure in a short period of time, in a warm room, so that production rates are not slowed up. The cure rate is also very sensitive to the catalyst level. Small increases in the catalyst cause inordinately large increases in the cure rate which is not normally expected in chemical kinetics.
