TenCate BTCy-1A
Cyanate Ester

Download datasheet (PDF)
Product description

BTCy-1A is a toughened version of TenCate Advanced Composites’ popular BTCy-1 cyanate ester system. Its proprietary toughening mechanism and controllable flow make it an ideal product for use not only as a high performance prepreg resin system, but also as an accompanying resin system for film adhesives. BTCy-1A’s straight-up, easy processing at 350°F (177°C) (under low pressures) reduces curing time and production costs, while the system’s negligible volatile emission upon cure allows low void laminates
