Description
EP 401
ALCHEMIX GELCOAT EP 401 is a two component, iron filled, brushable, room temperature curing surface coat. GELCOAT EP 401 is designed for use in polyurethane foam moulds, resin injection moulds, foundry patterns and vacuum forming tools.
EP 402
ALCHEMIX GELCOAT EP 402 is a two component, mineral filled, brushable, room temperature curing surface coat. Also available in blue.
EP 402B
ALCHEMIX GELCOAT EP 402B is a two component, mineral filled, brushable, room temperature curing surface coat. Also available in White.
EP 404
ALCHEMIX GELCOAT EP 404 is a two component, silicon carbide filled, brushable, room temperature curing surface coat. The product has a high abrasion resistance and cannot be machined.
EP 4062
GELCOAT EP 4062 is a two component, aluminium filled, brushable, room temperature curing surface coat. GELCOAT EP 4062 is designed for use in RTM tools, RIM tools, PU moulding tools, vacuum forming moulds, negatives, applications requiring high heat and chemical resistance and negatives where very fine surface finishes are required.  
EP 4062C
ALCHEMIX EP 4062C is a two component, thixotropic epoxy resin system for use with GELCOAT EP 4062 and ALCHEMIX EP 4350 laminating paste.  ALCHEMIX EP 4062C is specifically formulated for high temperature applications.  
EP 4093
ALCHEMIX GELCOAT EP 4093 is a colourless, two component, brushable, room temperature curing surface coat. GELCOAT EP 4093 is designed for use in vacuum forming moulds, applications requiring high heat resistance and negatives where very fine surface finishes are required.
EP 420
ALCHEMIX EP 420 is a two component, metal filled, room temperature curing epoxy resin for production of prefabricated support frames, vacuum forming tools and as a back-filling compound for high temperature applications.
EP 421
ALCHEMIX EP 421 is an extremely high performance castable, two-component, aluminium filled epoxy resin system. The cured system is formulated for the combination of high strength, high glass transition temperature, and thermal properties needed for injection moulding applications. ALCHEMIX EP 421 can produce injection moulds capable of moulding high quality prototype and short-run production parts. The moulds can be built from existing parts and models such as SLA, machined modelboard or other patterns.
EP 424
ALCHEMIX EP 424 is an aluminium filled, two part epoxy casting system formulated for the construction of tools used in vacuum forming machines and the production of prototypes requiring detail and strength. ALCHEMIX EP 424 can also be used as a general purpose casting resin for situations where a high operating temperature is required. ALCHEMIX EP 424 is formulated to have fast cure with minimal shrinkage, and is highly polishable. The low mixed viscosity ensures excellent detail reproduction. A slow hardener is available for very large or deep castings
