The common characteristic of a thermoset resin is that when heated it will undergo an irreversible chemical reaction known as polymerization. After this curing the resin cannot be melted or easily reshaped.
Lingol Corporation provides composite materials with Phenolic, (phenol-formaldehyde), and Epoxy resin systems. Phenolic resins are typically hard and provide good heat, chemical and wear resistance. Phenolics work best with reinforcements they can saturate like paper, cotton and fiberglass fabrics.
Epoxy resins are generally viewed as a family of resins. Performance characteristics will vary depending on the catalyst packages used in the formulation. There is often a tradeoff in characteristics based on formulation. For example, epoxies designed for high heat resistance will often lose toughness and be more brittle.
Epoxies bond well to most materials. The most common reinforcements for epoxy based composites are fiberglass and carbon fiber. The forms are typically woven or unidirectional fabrics.
Lingol Corporation provides Thermoset Composite Laminates with many resin/reinforcement combinations.
Phenolic laminates are available with: Paper, Cotton fabric, Fiberglass fabric, Synthetic fabrics, Non-woven Synthetics, Non-woven Carbon and Carbon fabric.
Epoxy laminates are available with: Woven Fiberglass, Carbon fiber, Synthetic fiber or Aramid fiber; Non-woven Carbon, Fiberglass or Synthetic fiber; Uni-directional Carbon or Fiberglass. Combinations of these reinforcements can also be provided.
