BCC Products, Inc./Blehm Plastics Announces High-Temp Epoxy Tooling Board

BCC Products, Inc./Blehm Plastics announces our newly developed tooling board for the composites industries: EB6200, a high-temperature epoxy tooling board.

The combined BCC/Blehm has been a leader in innovative performance products for over 80 years, and the EB6200 is no exception. Built to the exacting standards of all BCC/Blehm products, the new EB6200 high-temperature tooling board is ideal for those using prepreg in the construction of tools for composite parts. After extensive testing, the EB6200 board has shown few effects even at a temperature of 325°F.

The EB6200, available in 2, 4, and 6 inch x 24” x 60” has been developed to meet the needs of those in the aerospace, motorsport, and automotive industries. The material has excellent aspect and cutting performance; shaving it creates only a little dust, which saves on cutting tools and post-cutting cleanup.

With a shore hardness of 70D and a density of 47lb/ft3, the EB6200 is becoming the favorite among epoxy board users.

Features:
Density (lbs/ft3; g/cm3): 47/0.76
Hardness: 72D
Heat Deflection (°F): 300
Glass Transition (Tg °F): >325
CTE (in/in/°F): 2.1 x 10-5
Color: Brown

New Low-viscosity Epoxy Adhesive/Laminating Resin

Together, BCC Products, Inc./Blehm Plastics has been a leader in epoxy formulation and resin technologies for over 80 years. Using new technology BCC/Blehm has developed an innovative low-viscosity epoxy adhesive/laminating resin for tooling and part bonding. BC5009 is an unfilled room temperature curing epoxy system with high performance capabilities.

Built for companies needing a 30-minute pot-life and an easily applied adhesive for bonding items like tooling/modeling boards and mid-to-large epoxy parts, as well as in other typical bonding environments, the BC5009 epoxy system will perform to your expectations. BC5009 is easy to mix, easy to apply by brush or trowel, and has excellent adhesion to most tooling materials and applications. Although this clear-amber epoxy adhesive is especially formulated for the bonding of wood and urethane model board, it may also be used as a laminating resin.

The BC5009 system has the added advantage of being a color-indicated system that visually shows the mix ratio. When mixed to the proper ratio, the green hardener and amber resin  cure to light translucent amber, promoting  fast and efficient mixing, with no time wasted over-mixing.

So, shouldn’t you be bonding with the best adhesive system for your high-performance demands? Look no further then BC5009 from BCC Products, Inc./Blehm Plastics.

BC110-PU-Adhesive

New Super-fast Bonding Adhesives

BCC Products, Inc./Blehm Plastics—innovators of the epoxy clay systems, polyurethane fast cast systems, and many other products— have done it again with their newest innovations: the BC100 and BC150 polyurethane adhesive systems for super-fast set bonding of multiple substrates.

The BC110 is a super-fast set (1–2 minute) polyurethane adhesive for applications that require super-fast setting adhesive and great strength. Developed for quick repairs to automotive trims, dash panels and holding fixtures, the BC110 also is used in sport footwear bonding of soles and quick design bonds.

The BC150 is a fast  set (5–15 minute) gel-time polyurethane system, excellent for automotive and marine use, as well as sign and prototypes. It offers, without primer, excellent bonding strength to multiple substrates and materials. Designed for bonding applications that require a longer gel-time than our BC110 superfast system, BC150 allows more time for adjusting the set and placement.

Both the BC110 and BC150 polyurethane systems are a 1:1 mix ratio available in 50ml and 400ml cartridges. Without the need for primers or heat treating, both systems bond well to such surfaces such as aluminum, stainless steel, ABS, PVC, polyurethane, composites, thermoplastics, thermosetting plastics, wood, glass, and concrete.
