Production rates and parts quality are the key factors for many Production Managers. With this in mind, Sicomin has invested a large amount of resource into formulating fast curing systems.
Starting from standard epoxy systems curing in a few minutes at high temperature, Sicomin has also developed solutions for very large parts that require very long working time to lay up the part, but fast curing for quick mould rotations.
This latest generation of very long working time and very fast curing systems were developed with an added feature – visual curing control – the colour of the laminate changes with the progression of the cure cycle. This allows shop floor operators or quality inspectors to quickly and easily identify a potential issue with the curing or a process fault such as an oven failure.
