H-5000 Vacuum Infusion Hardener

Model:
1172
$33.60

The H-5000 Hardener Vacuum Infusion is a very high quality, low viscosity resin system which works perfect for the vacuum infusion process. You must use a special resin for vacuum infusion. If you try infusing the wrong type of resin you will not get the proper saturation in your laminate and you will have many air voids which cause weak spots. Also a thicker resin will not flow properly and will not flow entirely across your part. This resin was designed for use in our own production process of composite parts but due to customer request we added this product on our site for purchase.

This Hardener must be used with R-3501 Vacuum Infusion Resin
