  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) Conapoxy FR-1820

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Mixing

      Mix and degas individual components thoroughly prior to use.

      CONAPOXY FR-1820 Part A Resin contains fillers and should be well mixed prior to use until the filler is redistributed homogeneously.

      Mix the FR-1820 Part A and FR-1820 Part B in the ratio specified above until homogeneous. Components may be preheated up to 60°C if reduced viscosity is required. If hand-mixing, degas at >27 in. Hg before use

    2. Deairing/Degassing

      Degas individual components thoroughly prior to use.

    3. Curing

      The cure schedules above are based on time after the unit reaches the specified temperature and are recommendations only. The user is responsible for determining the optimum cure conditions for his application
