HIGH MODULUS EPOXY RIM SYSTEMS
The RIM (Reaction Injection Molding) processing of several amine-cured epoxy resin systems has been shown to give a family of high modulus, high strength moldings with short "in mold" times. The mechanical properties of the RIM thermosets obtained from six different epoxy resin formulations are discussed in detail and the performance properties of epoxies and other RIM materials are compared.
