LAMINATING RESIN

Ecolam Resin

Next generation fast setting vacuum bagging resin with zero styrene or methyl vapor emissions, very low odor, good colour clarity offering high performance combined with ease of use for safer work environment. Suitable for all types of reinforcement materials used in fabrication workshops.

LimbArt Resin

The LimbArt resin has a higher viscosity that produces the smooth and glossy surface finish. The cured colour is clearer, helping to make the graphics “POP”. This laminating resin is strong and tough, formulated to displace the slow curing, expensive two part resins fabricated with graphic images on the outer surface.

Epox-Acryl Resin

We are the proud manufacturers and distributors of the Epox-Acryl Laminating Resin, the innovative resin specifically formulated for the Orthotic and Prosthetic professional. Safe for use against skin when cured, Epox-Acryl is the latest in new generation Acrylic / Epoxide thermosetting laminating resins, offering advantages over all other resins in the industry.

Thermacryl Resin

A high quality THERMOFORMABLE and versatile vacuum bagging polymer matrix resin that produces exceptional  physical properties when fully cured at room temperature, as well as ease of use for the fabrication of all types of containment sockets and orthopedic parts that may need to be “heat relieved” after fabrication.

BRAIDING

Better with Braid - The Strength is in the Braid

Introducing our NEW medium weight Fiberglass Braided Sleeving.

Here are some advantages of braided sleeving over knitted reinforcement stockinette:

• Braids provide much greater stiffness than knits for the same matrix weight.
• Braids produce fabricated sockets with much lower weight.
• Braids are made using much higher modulus fibers.
• Braids provide greater impact and flexural strength in composites.
• Braids are far superior for fabricating thin wall composite parts.

FiberGlass Braided Biaxial Sleeving
FiberGlass Braided Biaxial Sleeving

Braided fiberglass is a much better choice over knitted fiberglass/nylon products for reinforcing Prosthetic sockets. You can fabricate sockets that are much stiffer, thinner and lighter than with knitted stockinette.

Braided fiberglass sleeving produces sockets that are just as strong as those made with carbon fiber with similar layups, but much lighter and stiffer than when using knitted tubular reinforcement products.

Using fiberglass braid for the outer reinforcement layer of your socket, allows you to choose whatever color pigment you need for your resin. (i.e. a hybrid layup using a combination of carbon and fiberglass braid).

We supply a full range of braided fiberglass biaxial sleeving covering the following LAY FLAT sizes:

Item Code 45 Deg LF Size cm/in LF Size Range cm Circumference Range cm
GBSM8 8 cm / 3” 4 – 10 cm 8 – 20 cm

Helpful Suggestions:

For Vacuum Forming with Plaster Molds

  • Cut enough material to cover the mold with two layers.
  • Pull one layer, twist, apply second layer, and go!

For Vacuum Forming with Foam Molds

  • Apply 2-3 layers and spray surface with water OR
  • Apply 4-5 layers without spraying water
  • When possible, lower oven temperature to 375' Fahrenheit

For Final Lamination

  • Use 3-4 layers of FeatherStretch as the initial and outer layer of laminations to create a smooth finish.
