Thermoset resins continue to remain the principal matrix of reinforced plastic composite components. Now you can refer to information on thermoset resins available around the world – in a single Data Book.

The Data Book comes with a clear, standardised layout to compare between competitive resins. Each resin is listed alphabetically, first by country of manufacture, then by manufacturer. The use and application of each resin is clearly outlined.

Contact details are readily and immediately available, making it easy to follow up information. Trade names, sales offices, local agents and main distributors are also provided.

The Data Book also provides an understanding of the respective chemistry, properties, structure, curing mechanism and manufacture of each resin, under its appropriate classification – with sub–divisions by chemical type –acrylic, bismaleimides, bisphenols, epoxides, furans, phenolics, polyimides, polyesters or vinyl ester.

With its carefully compiled address, telephone and facsimile number directory, the Data Book is an up–to–date source of readily available and complete information.

Data Book of Thermoset Resins for Composites is required reading for all those concerned in any way with the manufacture, marketing, use and specification of thermoset resin based composites.
