The FibreGlassDirect Vinyleste resin (Atlac 580 ACT) is a pre-accelerated thixotropic, high grade bisphenol A vinyl ester urethane resin. It has been especially adapted to meet the requirements of hand lay up and spray up applications. The resin is recommended for the fabrication of chemical resistant equipment and marine applications.

It which combines exceptional chemical resistance and an outstanding combination of heat resistance and flexibility.

Furthermore Atlac 580 ACT has very good handling and curing properties. Atlac 580 ACT is resistant to many aqueous acidic salts and alkaline solutions. It gives excellent performance against alkaline media and hot water.

The shelf life of Catalyst is approximately 6 months. It is important that the catalyst is stored in its original packaging in a cool, dry location away from sunlight. As Catalyst is an extremely flammable chemical, it is important to refer to MSDS and TDS sheets before use.
This depends on the temperature of your working conditions and how much catalyst has been incorporated into the mix. Warmer temperatures will reduce your curing time and colder temperatures will increase the length of cure.  Likewise, adding extra catalyst will speed up the curing process - often necessary for colder temperatures and reducing catalyst will reduce curing - again often necessary during warmer temperatures. We would recommend mixing no more than 1.5 - 2kg at a time. Once the resin and catalyst are mixed, the curing process will begin and you are working against the clock to get the resin applied - usually no more than 20 minutes. Only mix as much as you need.  Epoxy Resin is mixed on a ratio basis and should not be altered. Room temperature is the ideal scenario for curing. Each resin type will differ so we would always recommend referring to the MSDS and TDS available on each product listing before use.  Although some resins may be hard to the touch after 24 hours, some may not be fully cured for up to 3 days. Again, this information will be available on the product Technical Data Sheet... Read more
