What is UHTR?

  • UHTR is siloxane resins technology for parts requiring service temperatures above 500°F to 1832°F (560°C – 1000°C)
  • UHTR is available as
    • UHTR-IPA                        65% resin solids in Isopropyl Alcohol
    • UHTR-IPA-RS                 80% resin solids in Isopropyl Alcohol
    • UHTR-LS                          95% resin solids, no IPA
    • UHTR-NS                         100% resin solids – NO Solvent

What reinforcement material can be used with UHTR?

  • Glass
  • Carbon Fiber
  • Silica/Quartz
  • Basalt

How is UHTR different from other composite resins?

  • UHTR is formulated to be a replacement for current composite resins when the final part requires operating temperature above 500°F to 1832°F (560°C – 1000°C)
  • UHTR does NOT require special training for customers familiar with composite manufacturing

UHTR does NOT require a post-cure to achieve the temperature stability

What manufacturing processes can be used with UHTR?

  • Hand / wet layup
  • Tow winding
  • BMC / SMC
  • Vacuum infusion
  • Pre-pregs

What are the molding guidelines?

Molding parameters will vary departing on part size & geometry, but general guidelines are

  • Fabric/fiber is wet out with UHTR resin
  • Resin-infused fabric is formed into part shape
  • Part is cured at 150°C for 2 hour under pressure
  • Part can be de-molded if final cure temp is too high for mold
  • Temp increased to 225°C for 1 hour while maintaining pressure
  • Mold is removed from oven and allowed to cool

UHTR does NOT require a post-cure to achieve the temperature stability
