Standard Product Overview
The New Standard line of PRO-SET epoxies offers versatile resin/hardener combinations to accommodate a wide variety of processes. PRO-SET standard epoxies are based on the latest in formulation technology and the best raw materials available for excellent performance.
Our standard epoxy systems allow you to select resin by viscosity and hardener by speed. Uniform (3:1) mix ratios allow for in-shop custom blends for maximum adaptability to your proprietary processes.
All standard PRO-SET products are formulated, manufactured at our Bay City, Michigan plant, and are competitively priced.
PRO-SET offers five discrete epoxy systems, along with process equipment.
Within the system of Laminating Epoxies, any resin may be used with any hardener for a “custom” epoxy blend. Laminating hardeners are priced the same regardless of cure speed, simplifying the builder’s choice. Hardeners may be blended to provide even greater versatility. Resin comes in low viscosity, medium viscosity, thixotroped, high-temp, and fire retardant. Hardeners come in fast, medium, slow and extra slow cure speeds, and high-temp. Parts can be cured at room temperature for solid physical properties, or at elevated temperatures to obtain superior physical properties for the most demanding applications.
PRO-SET Laminating resins and hardeners bear the prefix LAM for easy differentiation from other PRO-SET products when placing orders and in your shop.
A vast range of process needs can be accommodated with a single resin (also available with fire retardant) and 4
blendable hardeners. Parts can be cured at room temperature for solid physical properties, or at elevated temperatures to obtain superior physical properties for the most demanding applications.
PRO-SET Infusion resins and hardeners bear the prefix INF for easy differentiation from other PRO-SET products when placing orders and in your shop.
PRO-SET Assembly Adhesives are 2-part epoxies available in fast, medium, and slow speeds for a wide range of open times, and are suitable for most all composite bonding applications.
PRO-SET SuperToughened Adhesive delivers toughness and superior peel strength for difficult to bond materials such as pre-preg, SMC, metals, and most plastics. It is the best choice for heavily loaded applications requiring high peel strength.
All PRO-SET Assembly Adhesives are available in No Color (NC), Black (BK), and quality control green (QC). They come packaged in cartridges, pails, and drums.
PRO-SET Assembly Adhesives bear the prefix ADV for easy differentiation from other PRO-SET products when placing orders, and in your shop.
PRO-SET High-Temperature Epoxies are a system of high-performance epoxies for synthetic composite mold and part manufacture. The High-Temperature system consists of a Surface Coat Epoxy, Laminating Epoxy, and an Infusion Epoxy. When combined to manufacture composite parts, they can be demolded after 24-48 hours at room temperature before a freestanding post-cure.
The Tg of this system is as high as 300°F (149°C) with proper post-cure. It has excellent temperature stability and part cosmetics.
PRO-SET High-Temp resins and hardeners bear the prefix HTP for easy differentiation from other PRO-SET products when placing orders and in your shop.
Absolute Clear Epoxies
PRO-SET Absolute Clear Epoxies are ultra-clear systems formulated for high-volume production, excellent sandability, and outstanding cosmetics over dark surfaces
PRO-SET Absolute Clear Epoxies bear the prefix ACE for easy differentiation from other PRO-SET products when placing orders, and in your shop.
PRO-SET Tooling Paste mixes easily, spreads smoothly, creates a low-porosity surface for durable, stable molds. Its shrinkage is less than 0.05%, and it may be used over foam, composite and metal structures. Can be machined after 8-hour cure at room temperature, or in a shorter time at elevated temperatures.
PRO-SET Fairing Putty has low density, low shrinkage and is easy to sand. Ready to sand in 8 hours, or in a shorter time at elevated temperatures.
PRO-SET Tooling epoxies bear the prefix TLG for easy differentiation from other PRO-SET products when placing orders and in your shop.
PRO-SET Process Equipment includes metering pumps, manual and pneumatic dispensing guns, mixing wands, and quality control dyes.
PRO-SET fire retardant epoxy resins are paired with previous-generation PRO-SET M2043, M2044, and M2046 Hardeners to control cure speed rather than the LAM or INF hardeners in our New Standard PRO-SET product line. These hardener formulations are still available to order.
