The R130 ECO-X Bio-Based epoxy formulation is a high clear formulation with an added UV optical brightener. The optically-brightened resin enhance the brightness of boards manufactured with white EPS or PU foam blank. The R130 ECO-X is a solvent-free, bio-based epoxy resin that has a reduced carbon footprint, utilising renewable resources and reduces the levels of VOC’s into the atmosphere. This bio-based system is an eco-friendly alternative that is available with a choice of two hardener speeds to provide a rapid room temperature cure for surfboard lamination of polystyrene (EPS) or polyurethane (PU) foam.
Can be used as Filler/Hot Coat
Bio-Base 20% once cured and mixed with Hardener
Reduced Environmental Impact
Rapid Fiber Wet-Out
High resistance to yellowing
Rapid Room Temperature Cure
Superior Strength over conventional epoxy systems
R130 ECO-X is a Two Part system which requires a KINETIX® Hardener to cure. The KINETIX® Hardeners Series has two option available, H130 Fast Hardener and H125 Slow Hardener.
The H130 is designed to match the production times of polyester resin.
Flip Time: 3 hours @ 25°C
Sand-able: 5 hours @ 25°C
Pot Life: 17 minutes
The H125 is best suited for larger or difficult laminates, vacuum bag or Infusion processes.
Flip Time: 5-6 hours @ 25°C
Sand-able Time: 8-10 hours @ 25°C
Pot Life: 34 minutes
The Speed of both systems will be dependent on ambient temperature and can vary in warmer and cooler environments.
1 part hardener to 2 parts resin by volume
43 parts hardener to 100 parts resin by weight
* Independently tested by Beta Analytic Inc. to ASTM D6866-16 Method B ( AMS) to confirm 20 % bio-based carbon content in the cured system.
