GOLD COAST YACHTS
EPOXY CURING DILEMMA
Any business that deals with epoxy curing knows how time-consuming and expensive the process can be. Curing epoxy resins with Powerblanket is easy and efficient.
In June of 2014, Gold Coast Yachts President, Richard A. Difede, grew increasingly concerned about the cost and time it took for their post-curing of large carbon-fiber joints on the yachts the company produced. The epoxy joints needed to cure at 145° F for an extended period of time, and the procedure Gold Coast used took too much time and money.
HOW EPOXY CURES
HOW EPOXY CURES
Curing epoxy resins with Powerblanket is easy and efficient! Most epoxy resin and hardener combinations require heat in order to cure since ambient temperatures are not high enough. If the epoxy resins are not heated high enough and evenly enough, the chemical, mechanical and heat resistance properties become compromised. In fact, some epoxy resins require heating in steps to prevent overheating from exothermic reactions.
Problems associated with improper temperature and/or uneven temperature distribution for epoxy resins, include:
• Color Variation
• Uneven Gloss
• Poor Inter-Coat Adhesion
ROCK WEST CUSTOM EPOXY CURING SOLUTION
Rock West Composites needed a custom curing solution because their overhead infrared heating lamps were not providing the consistent, even heat required for successful curing. Powerblanket created a solution.
