PRO-SET epoxy can enhance the strength and durability of practically any composite component.

"The range has been expanded to better meet the demands of modern composite manufacturing. All the formulations offer unrivalled handling characteristics with excellent cure profiles and are designed to enable companies to rapidly fulfil orders very competitively."
