CTD-101K

Epoxy Resin System
High Performance Resins for Cryogenic and Radiation Applications

An anhydride cured epoxy system that was developed and tested for cryogenic applications down to
liquid helium temperatures (-269oC/-452oF) as well as for its resistance to high energy radiation.

Sets the performance standards in cryogenic and high radiation applications and is backed by
performance data that meet all applicable test specifications.

Good room temperature performance and handling characteristics: low viscosity and long pot-life.

Non-carcinogenic resin system with very low toxicity. It is a non-solvent based system, and will not
give off volatiles on cure.

Improved wetting and excellent impregnation of large coils with highly tortuous paths.

Cure:

1 1/2 hrs at 135° C; No Post Cure or
5 hrs at 110° C with a post cure of 16 hrs at 125° C
