All of our bodies are carefully hand laid with the finest of materials. High temperature Vinyl Ester resin is used in all panels with a quad directional sewn cloth – not chopped strand matt. (CSM)
This is an aerospace material as opposed to the “normal” fibreglass or GRP materials of polyester resin and CSM. The heat deflection temperature of our resin is 105 deg C ( polyester resin is 74 deg C ) When you consider that the engine
compartment temperature can reach 80C plus, it becomes clear why we use this resin.
The strength of the resin is also much higher; Vinyl ester resin: tensile strength 95 Mpa; Polyester resin: tensile strength 62 Mpa. Fibreglass also has to be post heat cured at 80 deg C for 4 hours to reach this strength and to reach it’s heat deflection temperature.
