Download datasheet (PDF)
Product description

RS-16 is a low temperature, low viscosity cure cyanate ester resin which can be used in wet winding, RTM and VARTM processing. Its two part construction allows easy and long term storage while delivering excellent pot life. It is intended for lower temperature exposure with a moderate Tg requirement, and is an ideal system when used with different materials limiting the upper cure temperature. The system may also be cured using different combinations of cure/post cure temperatures and durations.
