This improves fire retardance, cosmetic properties and economics in finished composites. Composites made with Modar™ resins offer significant life cycle cost savings including high strength-to-weight ratios, low maintenance, excellent thermal insulation and sound dampening properties.
When filled with ATH, Modar™ resins deliver unmatched low smoke performance. Fire retardant laminates made with Modar™ resins have met ASTM E-84 Class I flame spread index requirements and low smoke characteristics typically required by building codes. These same compositions also meet mass transit requirements as measured by ASTM E 662 and E 162. Moreover, Modar™ resins readily accept high filler loadings without substantial loss of cured mechanical properties. In the case of Modar 820 TC, the filled resin mix also exhibits exceptional suspension stability.
