Novafast™ 500 is an unsaturated polyester resin which is intended for laminating at room temperature.
Novafast™ 500 is a promoted, thixotropic non wax type resin.
Novafast™ 500 resin is suitable for use as a laminating resin for fibre reinforced structures. Resin may be applied using hand lay-up, spray-up or filament winding methods.
Novafast™ 500 is fast curing, has good weather resistance, chemical resistance and heat resistance.
