Epoxies

Light-Curable Epoxies respond to visible and UV light.

Cationic Type V157 and V197 epoxies can be applied and irradiated with long-wave UV light in the range of 325-380 nm or with visible light in the range of 400-500 nm. Wide-range response lets adhesives be processed with many different existing light sources. Response to longer wave visible light is beneficial when bonding various engineering plastics such as Kapton and Lexan, which do not...

Basalt America Announces Stronger, Lighter, and Corrosion-Free FRP's (Fiber Reinforced Polymers)

Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP), represents a truly groundbreaking advancement in structural reinforcement. Lightweight, strong, and green, they are changing the way the construction industry thinks about rebar. Unlike steel, FRPs don't rust and are far stronger than standard rebar. To learn why Fiber Reinforced Polymers are poised to change the way the world builds, see our video.
