QuaCorr® 1001 Resin

QuaCorr® 1001 is a furan resin based on furfuryl alcohol. This resin has been diluted with furfural to achieve a workable viscosity.
Product Overview
QuaCorr® 1001 is a furfural diluted homopolymer of furfuryl alcohol . The lower viscosity of QuaCorr® 1001 make it very pourable and gives it excellent wetting characteristics. It is commonly used in the manufacture of fiberglass reinforced plastics (FRP). It can also be used as a pit filler for FRP repair.
