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.

The Infusion and Laminating Epoxies can be dyed, upon request, to provide for visual quality control. A yellow dye in the resin and a blue dye in the hardener, when properly metered and thoroughly mixed, will result in a consistent shade of green. The Surface Coat Epoxy is available only in black.
