Changing your Mind / Right to Cancel

If you change your mind for any reason, goods can be returned to us for a full refund if notified to us within 7 days of delivery; you have a further 7 days to dispatch the goods for their return to us. Goods returned after 7 days will incur a 15% restocking fee of the items being returned.

NO GOODS manufactured or sold by Advanced Materials Technology Pty Ltd will be accepted for a credit if returned after one (1) calendar month of original invoice date.

To return goods that are not faulty (i.e. because you changed your mind) they must be unused and, in the condition, they were delivered to you in. This does mean that, unless found faulty, we are unable to accept returns for:

  • Opened containers of resin, hardener, silicone or chemical release agent, unless found to be faulty or defective.
  • Unrolled and improperly re-rolled fabrics, unless found to be faulty or defective.
  • Any product that you have subsequently cut, shaped, broken or modified, unless found to be faulty or defective.

Refund of Delivery Charges (Cancelled Orders)

If you return an order in its entirety, then your outbound delivery charges will also be refunded (for orders within the South Africa’s Local Area’s.

If you return only part of an order, then the outbound delivery charge refund will be calculated based on the total postage cost of the original order (using standard service) minus the cost to send the items you are keeping (using standard service). Due to the way that shipping costs are incremented, this will often result in no delivery charge refund being due.

Faulty or Defective Goods

Any goods found to be faulty or defective and notified to us within 7 days of delivery can be returned to us for a full refund.

Refund of Delivery Charges (Faulty/Defective Goods)

If you are returning faulty or defective goods, then your outbound and return delivery costs will be refunded in full (for orders from within South Africa’s Local Area’s.)

In the event that you are returning faulty or defective goods which were ordered as part of a larger order then the outbound delivery charge refund will be calculated based on the total postage cost of the original order (using standard service) minus the cost to send the items you are keeping (using standard service).

Please check the box to acknowledge our return’s policy, by doing so you agree to our Return’s Policy of AMT Composites stated above.

Prime 37 is suitable for the female moulding of large, complex components incorporating advanced fibres such as carbon and aramid*.

Typical projects include spars, hulls and reinforcing structures.

Prime 37 offers outstanding performance in a variety of liquid infusion processes including SCRIMPTM, RIFT (resin infusion under flexible tooling), VARTM (vacuum assisted resin transfer moulding) and RTM (resin transfer moulding).

Prime 37 resin uses a wide range of hardeners to give a range of working times and cure speeds. This enables the gel time of the resin to be closely matched to the required infusion time for any particular size of moulded part. It achieves excellent mechanical and physical properties, including a high Tg from a moderate (50°) post cure.
The system has an exceptionally low exotherm characteristic, which allows thick sections to be manufactured without risk of premature gelation due to exothermic heat build-up. This low exotherm will also extend the life of the mould tools.

This system is available with Fast, Slow and Extra-Slow A3X Hardener speeds, as well as PRIME High Tg hardener and in a wide range of formats from small pack sizes to drums and IBCs.

Transport & storage

The resin and hardeners should be kept in securely closed containers during transport and storage. Any accidental spillage should be soaked up with sand, sawdust, cotton waste or any other absorbent material. The area should then be washed clean (see appropriate Safety Data Sheet).
Adequate long term storage conditions will result in a shelf life of 24 months for both the resin and hardeners. Storage should be in a warm dry place out of direct sunlight and protected from frost. The storage temperature should be kept constant between 10°C and 25°C, cyclic fluctuations in temperature can cause crystallization. Containers should be firmly closed. Hardeners, in particular, will suffer serious degradation if left exposed to air.

Instructions for use:

Mixing & handling

Accurate measurement and thorough mixing are essential when using this system, and any deviation from the prescribed mix ratios will seriously degrade the physical properties of the cured system. The resin and hardener must be stirred well for two minutes or more, with particular attention being paid to the sides and bottom of the container. As soon as the material is mixed the reaction begins. This reaction produces heat (exothermic), which will in turn accelerate the reaction. If this mixed material is left in a confined mixing vessel the heat cannot disperse and the reaction will become uncontrollable.

Prime™ 37 resin and A3X hardeners have been designed for use in closed-mould processes. This includes the mixing phase, which should ideally be carried out by automated mixing machines*. It is not suitable for open-mould processing and strict adherence to the health and safety procedures stated in the product SDS is essential.

If using Slow or Extra Slow Hardener the part requires a post-cure before de-moulding. When sanding or machining a component made from PRIME™ 37, which has seen no heat, there will be very low degree of cure, and the sanding dust will be more irritating than dust from a laminate, which has seen heat to effect more thorough cross-linking.

Gurit produces a separate full Safety Data Sheet for each component of this system. Please ensure that you have the correct SDS to hand for the materials you are using before commencing work. A more detailed guide for the safe use of Gurit resin systems is also available from Gurit and can be found on our website at www.gurit.com. Any accidental spillage should be soaked up with sand, sawdust, cotton waste or any other absorbent material. The area should then be washed clean (see appropriate Safety Data Sheet).
*Other mixing methods can be used.

Application

Prime™ 37 resin used with Prime™ hardeners is intended for use in any established resin infusion process. The information provided in the tables in this data sheet should allow the user to achieve a successful result with this system. However, if further information is required please contact Gurit Technical Support.

Cure schedule

A post-cure is required to generate optimum mechanical properties for this system. The recommended minimum cure schedule is 7 hours at 65°C or 16 hours at 50°C. Ambient temperature cure of this system will not generate adequate mechanical properties and is therefore not recommended.

Infused parts can be pre-cured on the mould at temperatures just above ambient (eg 30-45°C) to give the part sufficient strength and stiffness to allow earlier demoulding. Such parts should still be post cured for the minimum recommended time/temperature indicated above, to obtain adequate inservice mechanical properties. Contact Gurit Technical Support for “pre-cure” time and temperature recommendations.

See Technical Data Sheet for detailed information and instructions.
