INTRODUCTION SPX23833 is an exceptionally versatile hot-melt, epoxy prepreg. It can be cured at temperature as low as 80°C (176°F), or can be used for faster molding of components at 120°C (248°F). This is achieved with an extremely good outlife of up to 8 weeks at 18-22°C (64-72°F). It is a toughened system and offers excellent mechanical properties on a wide variety of reinforcing fabrics and fibers. SPX23833 is commonly used in vacuum bagging, press-molding, autoclave, and other pressure molding processes. SPX23833 is a very low viscosity system used with heavy fiber weights where low-flow processing conditions (vacuum bag pressure and minimum cure temperature), are likely to be used. With its high compressive strength, it is widely used in large heavily loaded components, such as yacht hulls, and spars. It has been selected for use by various America’s Cup syndicates and boats racing in the Volvo Ocean Race. SPX23833 is widely used in sandwich structures with honeycomb, foam, and balsa cores, primarily with the toughened SA 80 Adhesive Film.
