5M develops and produces epoxy systems for laminate production. The product range of LETOXIT epoxy resins includes liquid and foil systems with varying properties.
Regarding our strong innovation activities we developed new OOA (out of autoclave) technology for the production of laminated parts. Patented LF Technology (Letoxit Foil Technology) provides epoxy resin in the form of a flexible foil, which softens at increased temperature and is able to impregnate previously dry reinforcement.
The product range of LETOXIT epoxy resins includes liquid systems with varying properties and viscosity, from extremely liquid to highly viscous and thixotropic. The optimal combination of epoxy resins and hardeners can be chosen for each application and for different production factors, such as mixture, pot life, curing method, technology and the properties of the final laminate part. Our wide product range permits the choice of the right resin for every application, starting with resins certified for aviation and concluding with water-resistant resins for the boat industry.
As a speciality items, 5M also produces several epoxy foaming systems (the resin foams immediately after application, thereby expanding its volume and filling up any empty space, after that it hardens), epoxy acrylic resin for stereo-lithography or casting resins for the electrical engineering industry.
